Biography

Hellblinki's unique style is informed by European and American folk music, blended with punk rock experimentation and guerrilla operatics. They have been described as "Pirate Blues" "Dark Cabaret" and "The dark aristocrat of the underground movement today" The lyrics are philosophical, the tunes are odd and catchy, and the whole package suggests and delivers another world, not quite like our own. Andrew plays drums, guitar (occasionally accordion), and sings simultaneously. Valerie is the vocal force behind the afore mentioned guerrilla operatics, plays glockenspiel, melodica, accordion, toy piano, along with other knic knacs and various devices. Brad plays bass, brings the funk, and yes folks, you guessed it, the occasional accordion.

Hellblinki has been introduced by James Brown on Television, accidentally murdered a live fish with a rented minivan, created a stage show with over 50 performers, multimedia, video, snow, and staged it in a restored vaudeville theater in their former home, Augusta GA, has literally been passed out upon by an audience member on a moving bus while performing, has opened for folks like Gogol Bordello and Sleepytime Gorilla Museum, almost got in a great deal of legal of trouble for building the prow of a ship on the front of their building (complete with a nude demoness figurehead) as part of a raging Halloween party, has released an Xmas EP (really!) as well as three full length records, and wants very badly to do a houseboat tour with lots of frozen drinks...
