The Hoosiers

The Hoosiers are an English band from the UK and Sweden. I spotted them a few weeks back on “Live from Abbey Road” show. My next stop was their site and I was hooked by “Cops and Robbers” which has the band channelling Robert Smith and the Cure. (Not a bad thing in my book).

Lets have a look at the videos that caught my attention and stopped me cold.

The Hoosiers – Run Rabbit Run” (Live From Abbey Road)

Consider this a bonus track. I couldn’t believe just how good this was when I first saw it.
Hoosiers – We Didn’t Start The Fire (Live From Abbey Road)

So here we have a band that has more ideas and energy than their songs can contain. They are fun, funny, smart and obviously very very talented. Oh yeah, they are also Highly Recommended

  1. im glad someone in australia is finally noticing the hoosiers though its sad it took until 2009. they’re fantastic and if they got more publicity in australia i think they would be really popular here…

    from POM, aussie hoosiers fan

    ps. why not include videos of mr a or worried about ray. they would have wider appeal than the above two

  2. Hi Pom,

    pop the links to the songs you think should be here and I will make sure the links get through.

    For me the Live From Abbey Road performances were just wonderful. I mean to say , blue metalflake Les Pauls, a horn section and vocals that just run along the ragged edge of disaster. Truly Wonderful stuff.

    I have loaded “We Didn’t Start The Fire” back onto the MP3 player again. Thanks for reminding me of just how good these guys are

  3. i definitely agree that the two performances you posted are great and irwins voice is amazing.

    this is the youtube link for the goodbye mr a

    and worried about ray,
    which are their two biggest singles..

    i hope they come to aus some time soon!!
