The Kecks have rapidly established a reputation as an enigmatic must-see live act despite only completing their lineup in October 2018 after a chance encounter on board a Berlin bound Flixbus to see The Growlers.
After throwing raucous bunker parties in their rehearsal room and several other Guerilla gigs, a buzz is beginning to bubble. With the band graduating from two consecutive sold out shows at Hamburg's renowned Astra Stube and really hitting their stride on a critically acclaimed full German tour supporting rock 'n' roll legend Peter Perrett of The Only Ones.
Drawing from a wide range of influences, not least the Australian, French, Austrian and British descent of its members - The Kecks offer a fresh and exciting take on guitar music. Delivering both sophisticated yet spikey tunes that are expansive in ambition but authentic and raw by nature.
After months of obsessive hibernation tucked away from Hamburg’s seedy neon glow in a repurposed Second World War Bunker The Kecks headed to London’s vibey Buffalo Studios in early March 2019 to cut their debut release “Stick In My Throat” produced by Jean Baptiste Pilon and mastered by Giovanni Versari (Muse, Nic Cester) of La Maestà studio In Tredozio, Italy.
The winning combination of JB, The Kecks and Buffalo Studio has been warmly praised across the board, and the band will return to record three more singles at the vibey Buffalo Studios in September of this year. The first single of which they will be hitting the road with across Europe in winter of 2019.
Debut single Stick In My Throat was released in June 2019 via AWAL. It is a snarling, simmering and emotionally charged statement of intent, complete with a weird and wonderful trip of a visual filmed and directed in collaboration with the bands close friend Carlos ‘Mexi Kravitz’ Andres that grabbed the attention of the likes of Radio X , BBC Introducing and FKP Scorpio.

After following in the footsteps of Bob Dylan & Oasis and making their London debut at a raucously received sold out The Water Rats for what Noel Gallagher calls "The best club in the UK for future rock 'n' roll stars" the infamous This Feeling the future looks bright for Hamburg’s latest musical export with lofty early live comparisons being made to Pulp & The Strokes.

“I really like their music. A mix of a hefty dose of The Strokes , Pulp & Franz Ferdinand with their own unique spin on it. I love it“ BBC Introducing

Set to release their debut album in 2020, coupled with the success of their last single ‘I Created a Monster’, all eyes are on Hello Operator.
While their fuzz-fuelled rock and roll draws from so many that have come before - the Yorkshire quartet have honed their own infectious, original signature.

‘Hello Operator are the future heavy weight champions’ - Frank Carter (and the Rattlesnakes)
‘I’ve never travelled this far to see a band. They rock harder than anyone’ - Tony Visconti (Producer)
‘Every so often a band comes a long that feels just that little but different’ - Greg James (BBC Radio 1)
