Pookie

Pookie cooked up eclecticrazy 4-track goodness in various living rooms and bedrooms of early ’90s Houston, Texas. Eddie Piss, Madame Maenad and J.J. Sonick concocted tasty indie rock, crunchy new wave, wistful sideways pop, damned silliness, saddened alt-country, industrial screaming and more, all the while praising the orange cat that was the band’s namesake, and offering you a ticket to the Land of Poh in the bargain. Hop aboard.
