Formed by Nicky Moore in 1969 Hackensack were considered one of the heaviest live bands of their day. They only released one album (on Polydor) during their lifetime. Over more than 270 gigs they built up a small but loyal following but weren't able to generate sufficient revenue to continue as a viable project. Their sound was a heavy blues/rock mix and Up the Hardway is highly regarded amongst collectors and very collectable.
Ray Majors (guitar, vocals, 1971-74), Nicky Moore (vocals, keyboards), Simon Fox (drums), Stu Mills (bass)
