we are hank twentynine


Based in Leeds, Hank29 are the collective ramblings of Andy Renshaw & Phil Holden, sometimes joined by Nulsh and Tony, weather permitting.

They have been creating odds and ends of tunes since sometime around the turn of the century and show little sign of letting up despite all probability that this would be the case.


Andy RENSHAW - Vocals, guitars, drums & stuff

Phil holden - bass, vocals, guitars, mandolin

neil hood - guitars, vocals, harmonica, banjo

tony hamill - guitars, vocals, whistles, stylophone & house cocktails

On A Wire, the latest album by Hank29 is here………

Taking you back to misspent days of youth, trying again and again to hook them……

Written and recorded in a lower key way and full of the overspill of the mind, most of the songs have been developed from ad lib songs on an iphone. this may have worked, it may not have.

Produced by Andy & Chief, Aug to Oct at Stetson 3, Leeds.

with over 800 songs to choose from, there still may be nothing you actually like, but just in case you want to check something out without wading through the swamp, have a look at the handpicked fruits. Watch out for the pips.


if you would like to hear from the early UK Thrash Metal roots of Hank29 check out the book 'Contract in Blood' and CD compilation on Cherry Red Records that includes a track by THOK from way back in 1989 and featuring Andy.

A little bit of background....


Hank29 formed in 1998 after the departure of the Mighty Mark from the second incarnation of THOK.

Through numerous line up changes, fights and apathy they finally settled as the duo of Chief and Andy. Perfectly matched with their occasional addition from the far Northern territories of Nulsh and Tony, they record consistently their own drivel for no particularly purpose.

In a leap year, they may be found playing a rare live acoustic set, but don't hold your breath waiting for it.
