HeadHive About page

HEAD HIVE are an original blues based combo centred around former Screaming Blue Messiahs Chris Thompson,  Ricky Maguire - bassist with the enduring Men They Couldn’t Hang, and Dave Morgan on drums.

HEAD HIVE is a movable feast. It has an open door policy, so there are  appearances by the likes of Kenny Harris, the drum power house behind The Screaming Blue Messiahs as well as occasional lyric and blast of the harp from Tony Moon, a long time collaborator and co-member of Motor Boys Motor with Chris.

The new record is a collection of original material which fully locates the band in the territory they know better than most, that is a hybrid blues sound which tips a hat in the direction of Captain Beefheart , Chess Records and even Canvey Island.
