HUMAN HANDS BIOGRAPHY

Human Hands were a part of the burgeoning underground Los Angeles music scene in the early 80s, darlings of the critics (along with the likes of X, The Three O'Clock and others). Besides numerous indy singles, they managed to release the eponymous double LP Human Hands on Los Angeles' "Independent Project Records" label and their lone single for Faulty Products.

Although Human Hands were starting to get noticed by both the critics and the public, by late 1981 it wasn't enough for the band to continue. It was a fateful year for Human Hands. Bill Noland was lured away to join Wall Of Voodoo and Dennis Duck joined Dream Syndicate. Vocalist David Wiley died of AIDS in the late 80s. The original line up (with others filling in for Wiley) has reunited for benefit shows as recently as 1999.
