    NWOBHM quartet HELLANBACH were formed in Newcastle in 1979 and came to the fore with their debut four track EP "Out To Get You", in 1980 on the Guardian Records label.
    The buzz surrounding the EP secured them a deal with Wallsend based Neat Records and a track, 'All The Way', on the label's "60 Min Plus" compilation.
    A further Hellanbach song, "All Systems Go", then appeared on the Neat Records "One Take No Dubs" compilation EP in 1982.
    The band's critically acclaimed debut album ,"Now Hear This!", was then released in 1983.
    The album featured an inspired cover of "Everybody Wants To Be A Cat" , a song first featured in its original form on the soundtrack for the Disney animated movie "The Aristocats"!
    All in all it's a great album - up there with the likes of the first RAVEN album as one of Neat's finest releases.
    Drummer Steve Walker was replaced by MYTHRA's Barry Hopper following the release of the album.
    Hellanbach's second album was issued in 1984, and was entitled "The Big H".
    Despite it's quality the album wasn't as well received as their debut, and the group disappeared from the touring circuit, disbanding soon after.
    Bassist Kev Charlton subsequently worked with former PHASSLAYNE frontman Micheal Maughan, demoing material, but ultimately failing to score a deal.
    Guitarist Dave Patton later reappeared as a member of former DEEP PURPLE and TRAPEZE man GLENN HUGHES's touring band in 1995.
    Kev Charlton joined the resurrected FIST line-up in 2000.
    In 2001 drummer Barry Hopper reunited with his old MYTHRA band mate Maurice Bates in a Rockabilly band called THE BUCKETS.
    During 2002 Essential Records issued a 2-CD Hellanbach retrospective entitled "The Big H: The Hellanbach Anthology".
    Kev Charlton now divides his time between two bands, BESSIE & THE ZINC BUCKETS and THE CHARLOTTE YANNI BAND.
