Baby Godzilla Ordered to Change Name by Japanese Cinema Giant

New name, same aim.

Nottingham noiseniks Baby Godzilla have incurred the wrath of a Japanese cinema company thanks to their monster-inspired moniker.

The band recently issued a statement to their fans, introducing them to HECK, the name they will perform under from now on.

If you’ve ever caught these guys live I’m sure you’ll agree that HECK is an apt title indeed. Read the full statement below.


This may seem abrupt but following some fairly conclusive and forceful instructions it is time we instigated a change. We; the collective of Matt Reynolds, Jonny Hall, Tom Marsh and Paul Shelley, will from now on and henceforth be known as HECK.

To all of the incredible people we have had the absolute pleasure of meeting, working with, playing with and playing to make no mistake; this is still us. We will never compromise and we promise you our undivided commitment, ambition and passion. Every drop of blood and energy we have belongs to you.

This news is not presented with regret and although this wasn’t ultimately our long-term plan we are looking at this as an exciting new chapter. We press on, reinvigorated, focused and with more fire in our bellies than ever.

Don’t fear the change, we’re here for you, get behind us.”


Matt, Jonny, Tom and Paul
