David Devo Oosthuizen from Devographic had an insightful chat with guitarist Warwick Rautenbach from Hellcats as they prepare to open for The Cure on the back of their phenomenal album “The Hex and the Healer“.
We will be attending the album launch this 28th March so watch this space ya hear!
Hellcats are a two piece, stripped down, bare knuckle rock ‘n’ roll band from Johannesburg.
Alessandro Benigno (drums and vocals) and Warwick Rautenbach (guitar) started the band in 2014 and played their first gig at the famed Arcade Empire in Pretoria.They only had one song when they were asked to play that gig, so they wrote 8 tracks in two weeks leading up to it and came out the gates swinging.That’s kind of how things have rolled ever since. Hard and fast. Their sound is exactly the same, driving riffs and wailing vocals, with a clear ‘70’s rock influence. Filthy. Uninhibited
