2019 THE HATCH IS BACK
CONEY HATCH formed in Toronto 1980, named after the infamous lunatic asylum in Britain (spelt Colney Hatch) that Andy Curran's parents had lived near before emigrating to Canada. In 1981 an ad was placed in the Toronto Star looking for a singer guitarist to join a working band. Carl Dixon joined Andy Curran, Dave Ketchum, Steve Shelski and on they went to release a kickass debut album in 1982 CONEY HATCH, produced by Kim Mitchell, that still resonates today. The Hatch toured with some of the biggest names in rock opening for Iron Maiden (40 shows) and Judas Priest (27 shows.) Music videos for Fantasy and Devils Deck featured on MTV and Hey Operator broke into top 20 but lack of promo and difficulties with management saw the Hatch go their separate ways after three albums (Coney Hatch, Outa Hand, Friction). A few reunion gigs in the 90s and the noughties kept them connected. In 2008 Carl Dixon was nearly killed in a car accident. Mate Andy Curran spoke through the phone to Carl in his coma. Andy said "the Hatch still has more rocking to do, you gotta survive"
They both kept the bargain. Carl incredibly survived the crash with many injuries and titanium bits. The four reunited to produce what many say is their best album yet in 2013, CONEY HATCH FOUR. It was voted into the UK's top 50 rock albums of 2013 by Classic Rock magazine.
In 2018 the line up changed, with Sean Kelly breathing new life into those brilliant riffs. Coney Hatch toured with Steve Harris's British Lion to packed venues in November 2018. Get ready for more shows in Canada and Europe in 2019- THE HATCH IS BACK!
