The band HYSTERIC HELEN (formal name HELPLINES) was formed in the year 2000 in one of Bratislava´s garages. The founding members were DIRTY 77 and CARLOS. In the year 2001 the band released 7-songs demo recorded at unsuitable quality, therefore it has never been put on the stock. After unsuccessful looking for related souls and permanent exchange of not suitable band members in the band, DIRTY and CARLOS definatelly decided to become duo. In the end of the year 2003 the name of the band is changed into HYSTERIC HELEN. It´s not easy to identify the band´s style on first hearing, but we may hear the influence of new wave-postpunk-goth´s bands the 80´s in their music.
