The Hangover Club
Garden Stage, Saturday 2022
The Hangover Club is a dark country blues rock band based in Bristol, UK. Made up of PM LeGrand, Jeffray Cold and Helen Payne, they tell sordid cowboy tales with the help of crunchy cigar box riffs, warm acoustic guitar tones and three-way harmonies.
The trio grew up on a diet of classic country music, including Jeff Bridges, Johnny Cash, Colter Wall and Orville Peck, before honing their craft in a more experimental and tribal universe taking from the Dead South, Hollowbelly and Fever Ray.
The group released their debut single, Ride, in February 2020, which was mixed by Massive Attack's Stew Jackson. But even as the onset of the pandemic threw everyone's best laid plans into disarray, it provided time to rethink, reorganise, and gain new inspirations from different avenues and genres.
The Club naturally fell into its current formation in April 2021, and since has been busking its way around Bristol gaining hordes of fans on the street. The Hangover Club has played in iconic Bristol venues including the Bristol Fringe and Mr Wolf's, and the trio is now ready to play bigger stages and festivals.
2022 brings an exciting new chapter for the Hangover Club, thanks to MAS Records and the iconic Factory Studios in Bristol. February saw the release of Freedom (Live at the Clifton Observatory), and the latest single Devil's Watching You, will be out on 26th April.
