Don't look so pissed off girls, I'm blogging about you again!

Man oh man, the Huckapets are looking surly in their latest publicity photo. Cheer up, girls, I haven't forgotten you, I swear. Here's the latest dispatch from Huckapoo world, but first, that squatting must be really uncomfortable. Why not stand up and slip into some even more bizzaro outfits?

That's better! Whoa, hold onto those trousers, Angel! Groovy, lovin' the blown out hair. Very Brooke Shields 1984. Twiggy, would you like a sandwich? I know you have a name to live up to and everything, but didn't you learn anything from your benefit show for HEED? PJ, Snoop called, he wants his street creed back. And Joey, why are you wearing a sign that says "Dork"? Oh, wait. That's "Punk." My bad.

Thanks to Dashiell for the pic. Now click through for the latest Huckanews and an even more awesome photo.

A sure sign that the Huckapoo has made the big time: a porn site [NSFW] is using their name in the invisible text that shady operators include to bump up their Google hits. Coincidentally, it's a site featuring CG illustrations called "Perfect Virtual Girls." As if the Huckapoodles weren't already that!

A less sure sign: Huckapoo has an Urban Dictionary entry:

huckapoo - something to describe what my cat hacks up, also see the world's shittiest girlband.

"Dude, my cat just totally huckapoo'd all over the carpet." or "HUCKAPOO? OH MY GOD. FUCKING SPICE GIRL WANNABES"

Get with the program, Wikipedia!

Never forget that Huckapoo were indie critics' darlings before the masses discovered them. Now another unimpeachable hipster source shows some love in this memo to Lindsay Lohanboobies: "If you're going to rediscover gravity, please do it on the Huckapoo tip, not on Britney's sloppy seconds." Fuckin' A! I have no idea what that means, but it sounds clever as all get out.

A fan of the Alabama (?) eatery Huc-a-Poos Bites and Booze is concerned about copyright infringement. "Imagine my surprise when I discovered the worst music ever made is currently being churned out by a group of 14-year-old girls, collectively known as Huckapoo." Worst music ever made? Omigod, you mean there's another band called Huckapoo? Brian, call your lawyer, stat.

We saw this coming months ago, didn't we Huckafans?

Is it time to stage an intervention for Alexa and Megan? Hey, I got nothing against being obsessed with Huckapoo, but their latest projects are over the freakin' edge. First, they're hosting a lookalike contest. Which I totally want to enter.

But even crazier is the Huckapoo Idol contest (ironically hyped with the question, "Do you have talent?"), which asks, Can you sing like Huckapoo? Well, record yourself singing a Huckapoo song and email it to us at huckaharmony@yahoo.com." Um, yeah, as if it's possible to just pull 5 girls off the street manufacture a sound like that.

Set your TiVo to 'Poo! The girls will be singin' and dancin' on the PAX TV charity telethon this Sunday, April 17. Wear some family friendly outfits, huh girls? Then catch the act live at the Stamford Center for the Arts on May 7. (Love the rousing description of the event on the SCA site.) Maybe you'll have as much fun as these girls.

Speaking of live shows, here's a review for the ages. Hard to know which quote to use on the next ad:
"Their songs all sounded the same, and that was slightly annoying, but it was still different and at the same time not."

"Each time the dancing was different, but sort of the same."

"Even though they may not have been the best performers always, they never got upset. "

"Power to them for being able to feel comfortable to wear that stuff."

Phew! About damn time we got some more Huckapoo news.

That review is classic - it's like a dumbed-down distillation of your own conflicted feelings about dissing these talentless wannabes who are also just really nice people.

In fact, I'd say that the best thing about the review is that it's the same as your approach, only different - but then again, not really.

For reasons best left to the jury I looked at some other things on that Hewlett High website. I think we could all learn a thing or two from the article "'Guess Who'- Not Only Funny but Educational." I'm so glad I went to school before the internet. There's an 'alternative newspaper' I co-edited that I'm more than glad persists only in proofs in a locked steel box in storage upstate.

Jesus, nice panty view in that photo. These girls are ambitous. Can we call this post-britneyism?

That first pic looks like they got stuck in the mini house Geico commercial.

Okay, get with the program man. That picture was added to Harmony a couple hours after Huckapoo.com was updated! Also the look-a-like and Huckapoo idol contests are old news ;).

Hmm... I already have my friends recording the show for me on Sunday.

I'd also like to mention that Megan and I are going to be interviewing them on May 8th.. ooooh yea. I'm also still waiting for your post about us ;)

Oh wow lol! Wow they look like a bunch of stupid hoes. They need a stylist and talent quick! That fatty stardom girl looks like she has curtains hanging off her ankles.

I gotta say I was happy to see some new Huckapoo news. I've been hip to the radosh ever since I first read about the Huckapoo phenomenon.

The worst music ever made? I admit that I am often prone to overstatement, but as a big, big fan of pop music, I still have trouble getting on the Huckapoo bandwagon. Perhaps my personal ties to Huc-a-Poos (which, by the way, is on Tybee Island, Georgia) colors my perspective. But, you know, Scissor Sisters they aren't.

At any rate, I'm afraid the members of the Huckapoo/Huc-a-Poo world don't have much when it comes to the copyright question, since we're all just stealing the name of the defunct clothing manufacturer that -- to its credit -- did bust out some pretty happenin' articles of polyester.

Which, I suppose, makes it the perfect name for both the band and my old stomping grounds. If you can operate a successful business with a name like that, you've at least got more staying power than the original.

Cheers!

Silly me -- I forgot to mention this. Huc-a-Poos, while perhaps not quite ready to call themselves "fans," is probably the only bar in the world that plays a Huckapoo song on a nightly basis. There's something surreal about hearing teenage girls singing "It's a Huckapoo world" when you're in a bar of the same name that is delightful. The first 20-30 times you hear it, anyway.

It would really helpful if you made posts that people could actually understand... and posts that people actually cared about.

I don't get this "radosh" person. Does he like them or not? If they're hoes than you're a whore ;)

i THINK HUCKAPOO IS A BAND FULL OF WANNABE GIRLS WHO THINK THERE COOL. THE ONLY PEOPLE WHO LOOK AT THEM ARE 50 YEAR OLD PERVES WHO ARE FEELING HORNY FOR 14 YEAR OLD GIRLS. THE BAND IS AS ENTERTAING AS STARIN AT DOG SHIT.
