Coney Hatch Live At The El Mocambo

The new Coney Hatch Live album arrived the other day, and it looks and sounds great! Love the simple ‘bootleg’ white packaging, which came autographed [limited numbers], with an insert with track-listing and basic info, and even the LP centers are plain white [so of course I started with side B!]. Here is the press release below. If you’re a fan, check in to ordering [CD copies also available]. A great addition to my CH collection. Long overdue, but well worth the wait. Check out my interview from last month with Andy Curran for more talk on this album, and other Coney Hatch discussion – *Check out the links below for further interviews.

One of Canada’s most beloved and iconic hard rock bands , Coney Hatch first rose to prominence back in the golden era when vinyl was king – and the preferred format of most music fans. 

So, it makes perfect sense for Coney Hatch – Carl Dixon (guitars/vocals), Andy Curran (bass / vocals ), Dave Ketchum (drums, vocals) and Sean Kelly (Guitar /vocals)  – to finally release their  first ever long awaited live record on a 2 LP vinyl set. The set list reads like a “best of” for any Coney fan including songs from their debut classic 1982 Anthem / Mercury album along with selections from ‘Outa Hand 1983, Friction 1985 and Coney Hatch Four 2013. Coney Hatch enjoyed major radio airplay success in Canada and the USA in the early 80’s and with the help of MTV landed many prestigious special guest slots touring along side Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Krokus, Accept, Ted Nugent, Cheap Trick, Peter Frampton, Triumph, The Tubes and Edgar Winter to name a few. They became instant press darlings with Kerrang Magazine & Sounds but didn’t actually tour overseas until 2014, where they headlined Firefest in Nottingham UK.

This first ever Coney Hatch Live record set is available independently now through the bands official web-store- as well as Isotope distribution for retail. 

A limited amount of CDs will soon be made available at these same outlets.

The 1982 Coney Hatch debut record’ spawned such rock radio hits as “Devil’s Deck,” “Monkey Bars,” and “Hey Operator,” all which became automatic concert favorites.  That album was also the highest-charting of the band’s career and earned them a Gold certification in Canada. “We’re really proud of Live at The El Mocambo. It ’s our first ever live record record and it captures the spirit and true sound of our band. There’s some really great moments from our return to the iconic El Mocambo and it would not have happened without the passion of Elmo CEO Michael Wekerle…huge high five to Wek! ” – Andy Curran
