Hasheeda is the second album by Dutch group The Treble Spankers, released in 1996. Following the success of Pulp Fiction and an "easy tune" hype, The Treble Spankers got massive airplay with the single "Red Hot Navigator" on Dutch national radio.
These musical omnivores didn't care a rap for trends and externals. They provided magnificent songs by diverse artists such as Kraftwerk, Herb Alpert and 2 Unlimited with new energy. Casually, they added a few classics to music history by means of their own brilliant compositions. Their music is rebellious, and as mysterious as the swamps of Sumatra, and expresses the mysticism of the American Indians.
Between 1993 and 1996, The Treble Spankers played over 500 shows in Europe. The band played a packed Roskilde tent at the Pinkpop festival in front of 10,000 jumping fans and the album Hasheeda ended up selling an impressive 20,000 copies in the Netherlands only. Former band members are now active in The Phantom Four and Los Tiki Boys.
