Hoos this?

Like The Feeling, The Hoosiers are a band that owe a sizeable debt to mid-70s MOR rock radio.

Unlike The Feeling, The Hoosiers are really rather good.

This important disctinction can be made for three reasons:

a) When you see the Hoosiers, you do not immediately think of the colour grey
b) The lead singer looks like Ben Stiller, not Errol Flynn
c) None of the members have ever shared the most intimate form of love between a man and a woman with Sophie Ellis Bextor, but they would if they could*

The band's first single, Worried About Ray, was nailed to the top 10 for about three months over the summer and their new single, Goodbye Mr A, is out next week. Both songs have exceedingly good videos - quirky and funny without being irritating - so here they both are. Both.

The Hoosiers - Goodbye Mr A

The Hoosiers - Worried About Ray

*This is pure speculation on my part
