Derek J Huckel
Biography:

Derek J. Huckel is an amalgam of live gigs and concerts since about 1989. Hard-Ons, Hellmen, Mass Appeal were the bill of a first show he attended and it all changed from there really. Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, Sex Pistols and Chipmunk Punk were early childhood faves. Mix that with these Sydney bands mentioned, and a steady diet of the Trade Union Club, Evil Star, Hopetoun Hotels and the St James Tavern who served a feast of other audio morsels ranging from those above, King Snake Roost, Roddy Radaj, and the Southern Fried Kidneys. Space Juniors and the Falling Joys. An eclectic mix of aural pleasures became his delectation. The 90's saw an addition of hardcore like Toe to Toe, and the like. London called for several years, a second home, and tastes thus broadened to include world music, and blues, also electronica, as new influences... It hasn't stopped.
