In 2012 Nicky Garratt became the music director for Hawkwind’s Nik Turner. The process reunited him with drummer Jason Willer both former members of UK Subs of which Garratt was a founder, co-writer and producer (1977–1983 & 1996–2011). Gathering together a core of musicians to record the new album in Los Angeles and play a few shows, the embryonic Hedersleben began to take shape. Influenced by the fearless sprit of the early Krautrock scene the line-up was augmented by keyboard player/vocalist Kyrsten Bean, Bryce Shelton from Hollow Mirrors on bass and Kephera Moon on 2nd keyboard and vocals.
Described as the Space-rock wrecking crew, Hedersleben recorded their debut album Hedersleben 1 - Upgoer in June 2013 and immediately thereafter backed Joel Vandroogenbroeck on the new album of legendary swiss Krautrock band Brainticket.
•Hedersleben are currently the backing band for Joel Vandroogenbroeck’s legendary Brainticket appearing on the upcoming album.
•Hedersleben are not only opening on the 2013 Nik Tuner (Hawkwind) tour, but play double duty headlining in his Space Ritual band.
•The line-up includes former UK Subs original guitarist Nicky Garratt and Jason Willer (5 years in UK Subs).
