Post Heavy Goods Vehicle

Has anyone heard of this band? They were a stoner doom band from UK, in 70s, and have some really amazing songs. It reminds me of Cathedral.

I see... One of my real life friends used to be a member of this forum (his user name was Evoked) and he told me that someone, I guess this Beerman, who was a member of the band, sent him the HGV album. That's how I had my copy. It is not being sold anywhere and can't be find through piracy so I guess no one knows about them.

well, do a search for "Beerman" and send him a private message... he might reply, he might not... if he does, I'm sure he will fill you in with lots of details... :p

That's interesting. I've seen conversations on other forums - admittedly mostly posted by people who seem to personally dislike Beerman, or at least don't like the idea that HGV were amongst the very earliest of Doom bands - that claim the whole HGV thing was a hoax put together quite recently with manufactured YouTube footage etc. Never been able to figure out whether it was true or not, though I'd be inclined to believe Beerman. He's quite strange and controversial at times, but normally in an interestingly thought-provoking kind of way...

Anyway, I'm genuinely curious: have you - or your friend - actually got a genuine '70s LP copy that would put the hoax argument to rest? Or is it some sort of tape/digital/CD version that could have been put together much later?

Nothing on ebay nor on discogs. If this band actually existed, I doubt none of their releases would have eventually popped up on some commercial platfrom.

When I said "existed", I meant it on a commercial level with actual albums released to bring their name to the world.
Indeed, there's something like a band playing something like music here... out of the garage, super deep underground, amateurish, and not listenable. Maybe they were known in their neighbourhood...

And this cannot be labelled doom by any stretch of imagination, neither "proto doom"...
