The Hitch

Image Eureka, California’s The HITCH are a very rare band.  Some people call them metal, some people call them rock.  They're probably both, but they don't play typical metal and typical rock.  I've heard people call it "Mountain Metal," and indeed, when you see The HITCH's enormously-long beards and rural, blue-collar threads (or when you catch a whiff of their famous "smell"), it's clear that this is a hard-rock band close to the Earth (both literally and figuratively).  I've heard them brag that they're the only Northern California band that could build you a house from scratch--and that's probably true.

For fans of hard rock, The HITCH are a dream come true, because they are not "trying" to play hard rock.  It's just a fact: They DO play hard rock.  Period.  No one has ever or will ever go to a HITCH show and come away feeling that they did anything short of ROCK HARD.


Fans of the amphetamine punk boogie of Lamont and the slithery guitar tones of Raging Slab are going to love this. This is pure, raw Humbolt County rock and roll, and their live show must be a full-on hell raising bender of cathartic proportions. The songs stretch out and breathe in the moment but never lose their feel or momentum. Every player adds just the right amount of buzz to this stew, kind of like how The Rubes can space out while never downplaying their song craft. This slab is the perfect party to have stuck in your player on repeat. Keep away from Velcro Lewis and His 100 Proof Band, Artimus Pyledriver, or Lamont as a highly volatile reaction is probable and may result in waking up in jail.
