Bio

A mainstay in the Newcastle live scene for the past 4 years, The Havelocks have developed their own unique sound through their catchy compositions, vocal harmonies and guitar driven, upbeat vibe. Consisting of Lennie Tranter (vocals, bass), Craig Whibley (rhythm guitar, vocals), Marc Hallam (lead guitar, backing vocals) and Brett Kiely (drums), The Havelocks have developed into one of Newcastle’s most popular live acts, combining a unique discipline and stubbornness in their approach to composing, arranging and rehearsing their instantly recognisable, yet highly original and organic songs with a raucous party ethic that intensifies their live show and endears fans and newcomers alike to the band. It is this rare mix of dedication to their art and an appetite for insanity that continues to draw people to the band.

Fuck this song is brilliant!!! I was already an avid Havelocks fan/ borderline stalker but this song has edged me even closer to full blown predator!! The Havelocks are wonderfully talented, put on a great gig and are super sexy. I don't think I am capable of trusting anyone who doesn't listen to The Havelocks.
