Tuesday 8th July.

After a few years scaring the populace and making great strides across the UK’s venues and festival circuits alike, Nottingham’s mighty ‘Baby Godzilla’ have come to the attention of the Japanese giant ‘Toho Inc’.

Toho Inc. owns the trademark ‘Godzilla’, a character that’s as much owned by Toho Inc. as ‘Mickey Mouse’ is by the Disney corporation.

Toho are also equally as litigious as Disney. Baby Godzilla have become a victim of their ever-growing reputation, and have been forced to change their name.

So, Baby Godzilla is Dead. Long Live Heck.

With the name change comes a shiny new website, an album that is planned for Autumn, and the band have plenty of festival gigs afoot.

One thing that is for sure, Heck may no longer have the destructive nature of a Godzilla in their band name, but sonically and viscerally they sure as hell won’t be any tamer.

You can find the Heck online here: abandcalledheck.com. They’re also on Facebook, and they tweet as @abandcalledHECK.

Christopher Lloyd is 43 and based in the West Midlands. He discovered a passion for music journalism when he was fifteen after getting a family member to blag him tickets to see Nirvana, but only if he wrote about it. This eventually led to him finding a love of writing and photography, his writings have been published in many local newspaper chains, drowned in sound and NME. He once released an abysmal charity 7". Of his various, and quite frankly bizarre claims to fame, his favourite is that he once ended up shopping for cheese in a Manhattan deli with Luciano Pavarotti.
