The Hangmen don't fall into any genre pigeonhole easily, but for over two decades they have successfully straddled the international Psychobilly and Punk live circuits to deliver dark rowdy self-composed rabid rock & roll. The world once branded it 'The Devils Music', very few bands invoke that unsanitised unholy predecessor of neutered mainstream 'Rock & Roll' such as this.

The Hangmen don't fall into any genre pigeonhole easily, but for over two decades they have successfully straddled the international Psychobilly and Punk live circuits to deliver dark rowdy self-composed rabid rock & roll. The world once branded it 'The Devils Music', very few bands invoke that unsanitised unholy predecessor of neutered mainstream 'Rock & Roll' such as this. Brandishing a stripped carcass of a sound so raw it attracts bacteria they relentlessly revitalise themselves with new material that is distinctively theirs, with a knack for never repeating themselves - or anyone else. Lyrically uncompromising, the unsavoury and sometimes horrific diatribes are given substance and never falter into cliche territory. When the Psychobilly movement was extensively documented in the book 'Hells Bent On Rockin'' The Hangmen were duly given several pages of relevance.

From being welcome guests in Punk Rock arenas (not least a live engagement at NYC Punk Mecca CBGBs) whilst being endorsed by less purist factions among Rockabilly and Goth fraternities an eclectic and enduring following for this distinctively dark, cynical entity has emerged beyond any ring-fencing. There have been covermount releases on both Rockabilly and Heavy Metal magazines. They've raised the roof at Biker Rallies, Horror Theatres and even a Hippy Festival. The all encompassing subculture magazine StreetSounds is running a feature on the band that spans two issues... The Hangmen are a law unto themselves, a well kept secret with an ability to capture and keep a select audience without riding trends. Sticking to their guns through thick and thin, evolving with contagious tunes and songs of darkly deranged genius whilst never following any pack or rules other than their own The Hangmen still stand as that rare and potent musical delicacy - an original renegade rock and roll band with guts.
