The Incredible Hook
Independent dancerock power trio The Incredible Hook can perhaps best be summed up in a paragraph as a multimedia art-disco group from Memphis, TN whose sound is as cracked by its punk R&B as it is blessed by its alt-funk. If you enjoy either their energetic, 'glam performance art' laden live shows or their new EP 'Repeat Betrayer' (mixed at Ardent by Grammy award winning producer John Hampton) or both, then: fabulous. Because in spite of what their well rehearsed swagger would suggest, they would prefer that you do enjoy it - and greatly.
The Incredible Hook ride the waves of discofunk and dance-rock in a space pirate vessel lashed together by 60s Brit-pop and swooning Motown soul. Formed in the year 20509, after the destruction of their home planet, Red 1337, by the evil Lord Establishment, The Incredible Hook boarded their galactic time traveling space vessel named Liberty and under the authority of the Intergalactic Soul Armada, set back to the year 2012 to save the future of music and the universe. This band of scallywags have been shaking the booties of crowds and channeling bombastic sexy singalongs in dance clubs and rock venues across the Midsouth all in the name of galaxy wide fun and peace.
This space bandit collective swooped down upon the Memphis music scene with an arsenal of sonic weaponry and mesmerizing stage presence. Led by the vivacious and flirtatious 29,000 year old front man and guitarist, The Admiral Hook, the Hook trolls about the solar winds in search of the perfect host planet to bring back the funk.
