Hooton and the Apathy….A freight train of vintage synth, explosive drumming and intricate guitar riffage with the pop sensibilities of a Bobby Brown coke party. Geoff Hooton (George, The Montgomery Clifts) has taken the role of vocalist and bass player in this project which also features Jeff Paton on drums, Mitch Reid on guitars and Tom Green on synths. Playing Hooton’s 2010 solo album This Apathy Feels Alright and an increasing array of newer tunes, Hooton and the Apathy channel prog pop merchants such as Minus the Bear and The Postal Service.
Hooton and the Apathy play the Beetle Bar on the Saturday 17th March with Steve Lane and the Autocrats, The 52 Pickups and Conor Macdonald. Tickets $12 at the door.
