Echoing the rawness of acts like the Ramones, the Runaways, and the Stooges in their own fiery brand of bare-knuckled post-punk, the Hedrons came together in Glasgow, Scotland, in 2005. The hot-blooded gals -- bassist Gill, guitarist Rosie, drummer Soup, and vocalist Tippi -- got straight to work and released their first single, "Be My Friend," in July 2006 via Scottish indie Measured Records. The song hit the Top 20 on the U.K. indie singles chart, and its follow-up, "I Need You," managed to break into the Top Five soon after its October release. The Hedrons continued strong into the following year, scoring another Top Five hit with the song "Heatseeker." The success of these early singles -- along with appearances at festivals like T in the Park and Download at Donington -- ignited the buzz bin at home and abroad, enabling their debut album, One More Won't Kill Us, to easily find a home in the indie album Top 40 when it was released in February 2007. The Hedrons made their first trip across the Atlantic soon after, playing stops at Austin's South by Southwest festival and Canadian Music Week, in addition to well-received gigs in New York and California. ~ Corey Apar, Rovi
