Coney Hatch - Hey Operator album FLAC

Coney Hatch is a Canadian hard rock band who released three albums in the 1980s and released their fourth album Coney Hatch Four in 2013. Based in Toronto, Ontario, the band consisted of lead vocalist and guitarist Carl Dixon, vocalist and bassist Andy Curran, guitarist Steve Shelski and drummer Dave 'Thumper' Ketchum. The band was known for its ear-damagingly loud live shows. In 2018 the band toured eight shows across Canada and played Germany's . festival with Sean Kelly on lead guitar.

Coney Hatch formed in 1981, and began performing and developing original material. The band's first album was produced by Kim Mitchell of Max Webster and released in 1982. Ketchum left the band in 1983, and was replaced by Barry Connors who formerly drummed with the band Toronto. In 1983 Coney Hatch opened for Iron Maiden at forty concerts on their World Piece Tour. The band performed at the Hollywood Palladium in 1985 with Rough Cutt and Accept Hey Operator ( Canada).

Coney Hatch, Coney Hatch's first album, was released in 1982. A video for the song "Devil's Deck" was produced. The album was re-issued by British label Rock Candy Records in 2005, including 3 bonus tracks and liner notes by former Kerrang! writer Howard Johnson. Aldo Nova covered the song "Hey Operator" on his 1983 solo album Subject. A cover of "Monkey Bars" was recorded by American hard rock band Buster Brown and released on their 1985 album Sign of Victory.

Having quickly made a name for themselves on the Canadian club circuit, Coney Hatch signed with fledgling Anthem Records in early 1981 and proceeded to record their freshman effort with no other than legendary singer/songwriter (and label boss) Kim Mitchell acting as producer. In an era when rock radio thrived on a steady diet of Boston, Journey, and Foreigner (vocalist Carl Dixon drew comparisons to a less strident Lou Gramm, fused with a certain Joe Lynn Turner vibe), the foursome's commercial brand of hard rock seemed like perfect fodder for the airwaves.
