Welcome

Speedvark is Hemel Hempstead's second most important rock band. Formed in 1986 the band has sold in excess of three records and it would not be true to say that they have spawned a generation of imitators. You have now reached the home of all things Vark. Please drive carefully. 

Speedvark create monster 

Dearest fan, you'll be delighted to know that the first track for our new album is coming along rather nicely. We spent 2 days on it this week and managed to turn it around from disaster to not so disaster! Hope you'll hear it some time soon.

Speedvark make beautiful music together 

Loyal and trusted fan, we can barely contain our excitement at the moment; not only do we have a new single out this week but we are also rehearsing to go into the studio next Monday to start recording our third album. Yes, Speedvark have been busily working away in their headquarters in Northamptonshire since the spring and we have now written enough songs to get started on the recording: we just need to learn how to play them.  We'll be recording drum and guitar parts for three tracks at the Parlour Studios in Kettering next week and will be taking the tracks away to finish them at home.  We are crossing our fingers that the master tapes are not stolen by a barn owl this time around: those of you who were with us through the 'Pigeon Pop' album will remember that particular fiasco and shudder. Modern technology being what it is, this should not be a problem this time around. 

New Single: 'Sweet Nothing' 

Exciting times ladies and gentlemen, let the shires resound with praises and the heavens rain down sweet meats from on high; yea, for on this very day, Speedvark release 'Sweet Nothing', the fourth single from their second album. Download the song now from iTunes and you will stay forever young and be blessed in the ways of love.
