    Details

    The band was founded by frontman vocalist and harmonica player George Hexman in the late 70s, joining forces with major movers and shakers of the Liverpool music scene. Throughout the 80s and 90s, The Hexmen line-up was a shifting collaboration of local luminaries including members of The Las, Edgar Jones (The Stairs, Oasis, Paul Weller), the Boo Radleys, Elvis Costello (Alan Mayes/Rusty), Electrofixion (Echo and the Bunnymen), Cast and Dr Phibes among others, side projects included Los Rackerteeros ( Charlie Whitney from supergroup Family) and Film soundtracks . Although they have always been known as a blues band, the Hexmen’s material is not that easy to categorise. The band’s music is blues based certainly but the defining quality of the Hexmen has always been energy with an aggressive, indie edge and a psychedelic undercurrent that lends extra dimensions to the music. Notwithstanding George’s historic links with the 80s and 90s Liverpool music scene, the current band members have an exciting pedigree. George himself, vocals (and a much sought after session blues harp player), has recorded with with some of the most significant indie bands of the past 20 years. On guitar is Colin Guthrie is one of Merseyside’s & UK’s foremost blues guitarists and has played alongside some of the greats including Steve Gibbons. His former bands include Gran Torino, Stadium, Cherokee and Wild Spirit. Influences include Ritchie Blackmore, Rory Gallagher, Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Joe Bonamassa. Bass player Mike Cain and Mat Shaw on drums. Mike & Mat have gigged together for over 25 yrs before joining The Hexmen, their former bands include AgentX, PTP, Fallen Empire, Razor & The Cactus Elves amongst others
