Although little is known about H. Hawkline at this stage, international record collector, occasional DJ partner and hirsute head Andy Votel divulges that he is “from a family lineage that comprises of 70’s radio DJ’s and Welsh Horror movie stars”.

He continues: “H. Hawkline’s own place in the limelight often cascades and intertwines with the likes of his close friends Cate Le Bon, Sweet Baboo and Gruff Rhys. As an adept multi-intrumentalist main vein Huw Evans claws his influences from a broad outernational record collection comprising of Faustian Krautrock, Welsh Damp Wave, Turk Jerk and South American pre-punk”.
