HOODOO GURUS-Bittersweet

Many years ago, during my last year in undergrad a bunch of my friends and I lived in a house together. We all worked at the radio station together and each room had its own vibe. Next door to us lived a bunch of guys that were in a local Columbia, South Carolina band that I can only describe as The Cramps meet Guns and Roses. Their house was not surprisingly called Voodoo Mansion. We decided our house needed a name as well and my roommate, Heather, who adored the Hoodoo Gurus named our house the Hoodoo Hut. Now anytime I hear their music, I am transported back to that time and place.

I've got a new theme song. Does that count??

I guess the Hoodoo Hut is better than the HooHoo Hut!

GKL-Judging by what went on in the Hoodoo Hut, it very well could have been the HooHoo Hut.
Cap'n-Love your theme song.

It was worth the wait, I loved the Hoodoo Gurus, they were probably not as much fun as your Hut!

West End Girls makes me laugh. It always has - even when I was in sixth grade.
