The Great Redneck Hope
The Great Redneck Hope
They then released "Why Humans Think Computers Can't" (recorded by porkchop of Catheter fame) which showed a primitive TGRH with vocalist Derek Barnett not yet perfecting his vocal style. That album formed the basis of TGRH's sound and in 2003, they released "Splosion" (recorded by Stan Wood at Volume Studios Chicago, IL) which featured 9 songs with a more perfected vocal attack and increased musicianship but sub-par recording quality. After extensive touring through out all recordings, they released "SplosionBehold the Fuck Thunder!" which was recorded at God City (Kurt Ballou of Converge fame) and reflects the bands most polished instrumentation and best recording quality. By this time TGRH was known for impregnating various cats at the houses they would stay on tour. After much touring after "Behold..." Derek Barnett parted ways with TGRH and they adopted a new vocalist, Bradley Roach.
They toured a few more times and played SXSW with Bradley Roach but never recorded with him. After their winter 2006 tour, bassist Aaron Retka left the band and The Great Redneck Hope went on hiatus looking for another bass player. They played local shows for a while after finding a new bass player until sadly going on haiatus in early 2007. Since then they have constructed other projects such as Thruster (Doom) Lorito Opens His Beak (Indie) Sawed Off (Chuggity Chug). Recently, The Great Redneck Hope played a show at The Black Sheep in Colorado after almost a year of being on hiatus. They are scheduled to release a split with another band that has not yet been mentioned sometime in the near future.
After parting ways with TGRH, the original vocalist, Derek Barnett, has since been in various other projects two of which are Dendera (LSD/Fairy/Dino influenced crust-punk-screamo) and Swells (DMT/waterfall influenced grind-screamo-punk). Dendera released a tape, cd, and dvd combo called the 'wolf-lava' sessions. Swells has released an 8 song cd/tape titled 'ride the waterfall', and recently released a split 7" with Collapse on Ash From Sweat Records. Read more on Last.fm.
