Biography

Henry’s Phonograph are a post-punk/new wave/psychedelic-indie group from the minster town of Wimborne in Dorset, UK, now based in London.

HP formed in 2003, initially indulging in making hissy pop on four-track tape machines, but were soon blazing audiences with energetic, no-frills performances under a variety of different line-ups. The band’s sound has fluctuated over the years incorporating over 30 different members, with the core songwriting duo of Angus and Fred remaining consistent.

HP continue to record in the ‘domestic’ environment, in the tradition of low-fidelity artists, as an inexpensive way of maintaining ruthless control of their sound. To most artists this would seem an object… However HP’s conscious lyricism, wry pop and accomplished musicianship resounds, above the vapid radio static of the 21st century’s corporate-controlled pop culture.

    yeah man keep giving away the music for free! thats the right idea, i bet in the future all music will be free, paying for music will be a very sad reminder of the past. And the music sounds good!. keep it up.

    'Did We Know This Would Happen?' is far and away today's favourite track. get it up horndogs. Mind you 'Purple Hearts' always looms there like a flock of ravens blotting out the sun. or something

    lol, it seems as us super-unsigned, completely independent artists have a lot in common with each other. and when i say independent, i dont mean like, psuedo-hipster or any kinda garbage label it gets now-a-days. this is as real as it gets, man.
