The Checks are a rock and roll band from the bottom of the planet. Down there in New Zealand, the air is somewhat different, and so is this band. Undeniably, there is something confronting about the group. Perhaps the NME summed it up best with – “Not heard 'Hunting Whales' yet? Jesus h. Imagine Free jamming with Liam Gallagher the morning after he was battered by the German mafia, all blitzed to the tits on crystal meth, and you’re still only halfway there. This is their happening, and it will freak you out.”
