Hatfield's End - Stonehenge 4
I really like this band. Never heard of them before now though.
November 2000 saw the launch of `Stonehenge 4 - Echoes of ancient Mysteries’ of Hatfield’s End. Stonehenge 4 of Hatfield’s was presented as `An English production’, composed and executed by a group called Hatfield’s End. It is possible they consist of two people; the inlay only shows two pairs of eyes. The recording location is The Hannover House, South England. Does this mean something to you? The label on the disc makes me think of Pink Floyd of Syd Barett. In short - Mysteries…!
The mysterious act is successful. For twenty weeks the album reaches the Top 100, the highest place being 33. The mystery remains, no-one guesses the identity. On the internet crazy rumours circulate - Syd Barett, the psychotic creator of Pink Floyd, may be part of the group!
October 2005 - the new album of Hatfield’s End “Revealing the Myth - Stonehenge 5” is launched. Exactly 5 years after Stonehenge 4. The description of the music is still the same as for the previous album, i.e. in a truly sublime quality of sound (we may safely speak of an audiofile miracle) a musical world is presented which seemed lost forever. However, the album differs from its predecessor through more use of accoustical instruments, which causes the end result of its sound to be even `warmer’.
And…is the mystery still a mystery??
No, the composer of Hatfield’s End - Stonehenge 4, Revealing the Myth - Stonehenge 5’ is the 55-year old musicist Paul Hattink, an inhabitant of Breda, the Netherlands. For many years in his Furrier Studios Paul has laboured on the compositions which are so characteristic for his two albums. Paul has a long musical career, with local bands like Splash Down and Aubergine as well as the soundmix show of Hennie Huisman with “Na, Na, Na” of The Shoes. He also performs as a classical pianist entertainer and plays at parties with his trio The Paul Hattink Band. There are also several radio commercials. He is very knowledgeable as far as high-end stereo apparatus is concerned, and imports and is sales representative of the brands Accuphase (in Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg) and Cabasse (the Netherlands). He has published articles in a journal named Audio-Opinie under a pseudonym (“Jean Hauteparleur”).
