Thee Hypnotics is a UK garage/psychedelic/hard rock band formed in 1985. They were part of the early alternative rock scene, releasing two full-length albums and an EP from 1989-1990 before taking an enforced hiatus due to their drummer breaking his back in a car accident while they were on tour in the US. They later regrouped and released a couple more records but never achieved the mainstream success they seemed on the verge of reaching as their similar-sounding contemporaries The Black Crowes did. Their music was mostly influenced by late-60s bands like The Stooges, MC5, The Doors, early Led Zeppelin and Pink Fairies. They remain a largely-forgotten precursor to the stoner rock of today.
Thee Hypnotics disbanded in 1998 but they made a comeback in 2018 and released a box set "Righteously Re-Charged" consisting of all of their studio albums.
