Adam Levy was abducted in the early morning hours on June 23, 1998. After purchasing a post-gig egg salad deli roll from the S.A. on Lyndale & 22nd Ave, hominid beings of an unknown origin threw him into the back of a ’76 El Camino, and drove him to the Menards on 394, where their ship was hidden.
Once aboard the craft, Adam was stripped naked and forced to explain the origins of American popular song to their Cultural Minister, Vortek Oon Guabbious. XXVII. Afterwards, Adam was made to sing the duet “Up Where We Belong” with Vortek, while the whole crew watched. As a result of this traumatic experience, Adam formed the band ‘Hookers & Blow’ as a means of reclaiming the rich legacy of America popular song, a legacy that had become tainted in his mind; soiled by an unwelcome probe administered by soulless, hairless, tone deaf beings.
While Hookers & Blow started as a pitiful cry for help, the weekly therapy session at Gluek’s gradually gained momentum, eventually evolving into the full-fledged howl of resistance, strength, and self-wellness management that resonates today.
Trent Norton has no memory of any events taking place prior to yesterday, so we are unable to provide bio info at this time. He may have been on the ship with Adam, and he may or may not have sung the Jennifer Warnes female lead. (BASS GUITAR)
Matt Darling is an example of the many little miracles that pass us by on the street each day. What is he saying? And how did he survive the attempted Kava Kava overdose? And why Kava Kava, and not valerian root? (TROMBONE)
Andra Suchy is owner-operator of “Suchy’s Stun N’ Fun” - a new family fun center which takes all the passive-aggressive action of Paintball, and combines it with the up-close-and-personal buzz of Taser Stun Gun action. Locations in Shakopee, Orono, and Big Lake. (VOCALS)
Steve Kung plays trumpet with the aid of a transplanted tongue and false teeth. We have been asked by Steve not to mention the glass testicle. Don’t look down when talking to him, and avoid looking at his mouth. Oh yeah, don’t look him in the eye either. (TRUMPET)
Tom Scott is about to be fired from the band. If you see him, act like nothing is wrong. Smile, say, “That was cool man.” Take a sip from your drink, and go on talking to someone else. Dead man walking. (DRUMS)
Peter J. Sands was manager of a highly successful vintage keyboard shop, until the incident. After hours video shoots involving low budget pyrotechnics, alcohol, groupies and flammable poly wear led to his termination and subsequent skin grafts. (KEYBOARDS)
Joe Savage is another example of the power of music to shape our lives in strange and wonderful ways. Joe received a law degree from Harvard, and went on to the prestigious Wharton School of Management where he earned his Masters in Business. He threw it all away to become a Shaman schooled in Navajo traditional healing methods. During a particularly intense sweat, he heard a guitar that sounded like it was melting. The rest is history.
