Hooky and the Delinquents


I went looking for bands named Hookey or Hooky (not sure how you spell it). I thought the name would be a comic goldmine in the "who's on first?" tradition.
--Who's playing?
--Hookey.
--They're playing Hookey?
--No, we're playing Hookey.

Yes, I know I missed my calling. (I'm here all week, folks.) I found Hooky and the Delinquents and The Hookey Band. The only match for H and the D is a recent classified in a St. Louis paper, looking for members and specifying "all members must chew gum." Clearly they are very rebellious. I think they should title their first CD "Please Hooky don't hurt 'em."

The Hooky Band is based in England and has progressed a little farther than H and the D. They'll play pretty much any kind of music, including "Ho-Down." I think that is probably different from Hoe-Down. I imagine it involves a lot of broken acrylic nails and a tourniquet made of spandex.

Hooky and the Delinquents: 7.9 (nice use of the "X and the Ys" construction)
The Hooky Band: 2.5 (would have been better to call themselves simply Hooky)
