The Honkeys aren’t to be confused with the band in my last post. This band is an instrumental surf act that recently reunited. They originally “took a break” back in 2001. We’re glad to have them back, as they were one of the best bands to come out of St. Louis in recent years. They had one release on Golly Gee Records, this is from their bio there: “inspired by their love of ’60s go-go movies, reverb, chili, yo-yos, and the occasional professional wrestling match, they molded their noise into a groovy modern interpretation of instrumental surf music that is both unmistakable and unforgettable. The obligatory influences would be, of course, artists like classic instrumental artists such as The Ventures, Davie Allan & The Arrows, The Trashmen, Link Wray, Dick Dale, The New Dimensions, The Pyramids, The Astronauts, as well as such modern surf/instrumental acts as Satan’s Pilgrims, Shadowy Men on a Shadowy Planet, The Bomboras, The Tiki Tones, Los Straitjackets, and, of course, Man or Astro-Man?.”
