In 1999, Scott and Nick flew to Amsterdam and met up with Tony and his bandmate Theo Brouwer and The Hydromatics were born.The band rehearsed for six days, played three shows in Amsterdam and wrote some new material for the bands debut album "Parts Unknown".

British Rock 'n' Roll label EASY ACTION RECORDS released a remastered version of this brilliant record. The cd displays a wonderful new artwork, two tracks with different mix for 7" singles and also 6 live tracks recorded in Freiburg in 1999. All of this amazingly remastered in the most sonic "in your face" way possible!
Although the Hydromatics made a good solid studio album after practising for six days, after six weeks on the road with the Hellacopters and Zen Guerilla they had turned into a lethal rocking monster. What the band was capable of on stage can be heard on these six live songs recorded off the board in Switzerland. This is the real deal, with no overdubs or fancy producer tricks. It's a pure adrenalin rush from the very first second to the last feedback-drenched note of the glorious Sonic's Rendezvous Band anthem "City Slang".
This CD is the second in the series of Hydromatics reissues packaged in card gatefold sleeve featuring unseen photos.
The band is looking to reform in spring of 2016 based on success of these reissues and tour Europe with Radio Birdman Deniz Tek added to the line up.
An absolute must buy! Get it here:
