The Hook - 1968 - Will Grab You

The Hook was a late sixties So. Cal. band that had a minor cult hit, "Son of Fantasy", that has to be one of the great neglected "heavy" rock tunes of the late sixties underground/garage band/psychedelica pop music movement. If you didn't live in So.Cal. at that time then you probably haven't heard of the band, but if you appreciate the stylings of such bands as The Standells, The Chocolate Watch Band, The Blues Magoos, The Seeds, The Leaves, etc., then you will eat this up with a spoon. They were a power trio, and the names of some of the tunes on this CD will tell you a lot about their musical philosophy ("Everything's Groovy", "Turn Your Head", "Plug Your Head In"). Their lead guitarist had a style very similar to Leigh Stephens of Blue Cheer, and while they can be compared to that band in some respects, they really did have their own style, fuzz tone/reverb and all.
