Richard Hawley

Leather faced, bittersweet singer

Richard Hawley, the leather faced, bitter sweet singer renowned as the guitarist from legendary bands The Longpigs and Pulp is aghast about what the American’s have done to his cuppa. The night before, him and his band played their first ‘proper’ US show at the ‘must-see’ gig alongside fellow crooner Morrissey in Austin’s town music hall; a knack which he seemingly inherited from his ancestors. Hawley’s song craft and his timeless crooning cast aspersions to a bygone - perhaps imagined - sepia age of lost romance and misplaced melancholia.
