Head Like A Hole

Outrageous Wellington rockers Head Like a Hole (aka HLAH) formed in 1990, taking their name from a Nine Inch Nails song. Masters of excess, they quickly made a name for themselves via unhinged live performances (not to mention a casual attitude to wearing clothes onstage).  Sharing management, a record label and one obscure recording with Shihad, the band split in 1998 in a state of disarray, after four albums. After reforming for the 2009 Homegrown festival, further releases followed. Swagger of Thieves, a feature-length documentary on the band that was a decade in the making, debuted in July 2017.
