BandAlternativePunk

Hammerbat make a music that will open your aggressive mental canals and increase your heart rate to a revolutionary inspiring speed. A call to arms for intelligent Post Punk bands to rise up and quash corporate punk. A three piece that fuse 80's New Wave, 90's Indie Punk and Raw 70's Garage Rock.

Biography

Formed in Nov 2010.
Three piece.
Belfast.
Hammerbat play a fusion of 90's Hardcore, 80's new wave, 70's garage punk and played with a love of 50's Cool Jazz. They write with intelligent lyrics and an honest anger and aggression to express the ever increasing absurdities of this world. They find that folk music just does not express the anger they feel toward world leaders and lethargic X factor viewers.

We are inspired by this quote from Woody Allen's Manhattan....

Woody: "Has anybody read that nazis are going to march in New Jersey, you know? I read this in the newspaper, we should go down there, get some guys together, you know, get some bricks and baseball bats and really explain things to them."

Man: "There was this devastating satirical piece on that on the op-ed page of the Times. It is devastating."

Woody: "Well, a satirical piece in the Times is one thing, but bricks and baseball bats really gets right to the
point."

Woman: "Oh, but really biting satire is always better than physical force."

Woody: "No, physical force is always better with nazis. Cos
it's hard to satirize a guy with shiny boots."

Musical influences are: GANG OF FOUR, NOMEANSNO, FUGAZI, DANZIG, MISFITS.
