Keith & Ronan Mulligan who hail from Sligo, Ireland and Willie Gregory & Colin Delaney are native San Franciscans.
Formed in Sligo, Ireland in 2003. We played two nationwide tours with Shane MacGowan, did a few 2FM Fanning sessions.
After regularly packing out The Garavogue and McGarrigles in their native Sligo, and Dublin's Ambassador, Olympia and Belfast's Limelight, while supporting Shane McGowan & The Popes. The Hooks are now building their fan base in the states using San Francisco as headquarters. In the Autumn/Fall of 2002, David Mullen, Keith & Ronan Mulligan put the word out in their local town of Sligo (a small city nestled in the mountains of North West of Ireland) that they were looking for a drummer to join a new band. Enda McGoldrick answered the call and thus formed the first incarnation of The Hooks.
The Hooks set about recording a four track EP, which would become Jackie Hayden’s record of the month in national music magazine ‘Hot Press’. The Hooks received a weekend’s free recording in Dublin. This combined with another recording session at JAM Studio’s in Kells, Co. Meath made up the tracks on the second E.P. This E.P. received much national airplay on Ireland’s top radio stations. ‘2FM’, Irelands biggest radio station, offered them two recording sessions for the Dave Fanning sessions, which were and are still broadcast. Shane MacGowan and The Popes requested the help of The Hooks for two Irish tours together.
These gigs were a great success with the band playing sell out shows at Dublin’s Olympia and Ambassador Theatre’s as well as Belfast, Carrick-On-Shannon, Galway, Limerick and Cork. The Hooks went to London’s Miloco Studio’s to record some further tracks for various record companies. Following this Keith & Ronan decided to try America out, leaving David & Enda at home to pursue their own commitments.
With 2004 came the trip across the Atlantic to edge of the Pacific and San Francisco.
Keith & Ronan landed in America in June of 2004 with a phone number for a drummer in San Francisco by the name of Colin Delaney. Colin said he had a friend by the name of Willie Gregory who played bass and incorporated him into the band. Thus forming the second and present incarnation of The Hooks.
The Hooks didn’t waste much time and played their first gig in August in San Francisco’s Amnesia. A stream of gigs followed including The Fillmore, The Rickshaw Stop, The Ant Show, LA’s The Viper Room, Blakes of Berkeley, The Four Deuces, The Hemlock Tavern, The Tongue & Groove, The Arrow Bar, The Edinburgh Castle, The Elbo Room, 111 Minna, to name a few. In between these gigs The Hooks began recording an E.P. at Hyde Street Studio’s with Jamie McMann.
The 10,000 Feet E.P. was released at ‘The Bottom of The Hill’ to critical acclaim in December 2005. Live 105 radio station asked the lads in to record a live on session for their Soundcheck programme with DJ Aaron Axelson. A television appearance including an interview and live performance was then scheduled for KTSF on a show called Nightshift. The crew claimed it was their most successful piece yet.
