Are we famous yet?


Newsday climbs on board the Huckapoo bandwagon. Highlights:

"The group is building buzz, thanks to a couple of songs on Disney music compilations and articles in national newspapers and magazines."

That's the best thing about buzz: it's easy to start, and almost completely self-fulfilling.

"Every sign in the music business seems to point to Huckapoo's failure: The boy-band craze is over, The Spice Girls are a memory, and Huckapoo's brand of bright, sugary pop (think Tiffany or Debbie Gibson) seems out of step with the current wave of hip-hop and R&B."

I could say something about Hilary Duff, but I'm busy thinking about Tiffany and Debbie Gibson. Whatever happened to them? [With perfect timing, this glorious update.]

"Mitchell Segal, the 45-year-old father of Brittney Segal of Jericho (she plays Angel Sparks, the biker girl) [is] accustomed to show biz, he says, and isn't easily fazed. 'I'm not naive to the fact that my daughter is going to be in costume and showing some skin,' he says. 'I think it's done in good taste.'"

Well, there's a difference between "not skimpy" and "good taste," but I take your meaning. Just be careful, that quote is only a few vodka martinis away from sounding like Joe Simpson.

I guess that's it for highlights. Um, there's a sidebar about Huk-A-Poo shirts (spelled wrong). Oh, and I have to mention the picture captions, in which the band is identified as "The Huckapoo's" as in: "The Huckapoo's are an all-girl band. They are: Joey Thunder, Angel Sparks, Twiggy Stardom, Groovy Tuesday, and PJ Bardot. The dog is Hookapootch." At first I thought, dag! What kind of a jerk would say something so mean about a teenage girl? But then I realized they're talking about an actual canine, about which two things: 1) Shouldn't that be "Huckapooch"? and 2) The dog's name is Rusty.

Related: Harmony has a major Huckapoo article I somehow missed! Meanwhile, Huckapoo MANIA is proving less than maniacal. C'mon, yo, get off your Hucakpoopshoot and post something already.
