The name Het could refer to one of three acts (organized here chronologically by date of inception): 1) A dutch pop-art beat band (nederbeat) from the sixties formed by Bob Bouber. They had a large hit in the Netherlands with the song "Ik heb geen zin om op te staan" (I don't feel like getting up), and released a few other songs that stand out because of their weird lyrics. 2) An avant-prog/experimental rock band originally formed by Dominique Weeks and Cass Davies of Furious Pig, later joined by Tim Hodgkinson of Henry Cow, and Belgian singer / performance artist Catherine Jauniaux. They recorded one critically acclaimed but largely ignored album entitled "Let's Het" in 1983 (reissued in 2006 by Ad Hoc records).
Oft likened to Frank Zappa and The Residents (but with overtones somewhat comparable to Harry Partch), "Let's Het" has been growing in recognition in recent years for its innovative use of percussion, call-and-response vocal experimentation, and eclectic, challenging instrumentation. 3) A Norwegian band playing groovy, melodic "loopjazz". Band members are Helge W Flatland (keys), Erland Dahlen (drums), Tore Bråthen (trumpet) and Bent Gjersvik (sound).Make Het Playlist
