They are now ready to wake up the whole Indie scene and show everyone what more you can do with just drums, a bass and a guitar. The first demo was recorded in June of 2005. www.thehands.nl Micha Haring; Drums Jos Hoevenaars ; Guitar Youri Seidler ; Bass The Hands from Australia A band dedicated to vintage instruments and vintage recording techniques, using Hammond organ, Hohner clavinet, Mini Moog, to name a few of our intruments and an array of vintage microphones and tape machines to produce the fattest sounds possible The brothers Clayton and Lachlan started playing together on the family piano as children in their hometown of Adelaide and soon were working as professional musicians while still at school. Clayton moved to Sydney and joined The Mighty Reapers and began playing with the legendary Jackie Orszaczky who he continued to play with for the next 9 years. Clayton also went on to play and record with Renee Geyer, Billy Thorpe, Kasey Chambers, The Whitlams and many other major acts in Australia before moving to New York.
Lachlan then, having moved to Sydney began playing with the Mighty Reapers and started to make his own way up very quickly. Likewise playing and recording with Powderfinger, Jimmy Barnes, Billy Thorpe and others. Armed with many new songs, Clayton returned from New York and the brothers decided to form their own band. As a consequence, The Hands launched on to the Sydney scene in 2003 and have consistently built a reputation as a ‘must see’ live act as they work their way around Australia. http://www.thehandsmusic.com http://www.myspace.com/thehands Read more on Last.fm.
