Jonathan Markwood's Hoo-Hah Conspiracy - Psychoacusis


About Jonathan Markwood’s Hoo-Hah Conspiracy


Award winning actor and musician Jonathan Markwood (Coronation Street, Fresh Meat, Eastenders) and his band Hoo-Hah Conspiracy are proving to be real festival favourites.


His rousing and internationally acclaimed songs follow the lives, loves and outrageous fortunes of an eccentric coterie of characters including lovelorn 'Chelsea Stacey', unlovable ‘Minnesota’ and weapon wielding avenger 'Catapult Kevin’ !


Jonathan's a multiple song and album award winner at successive JPF World Music Awards in the US (officially the world’s biggest ever music awards event), and the band will shortly be releasing their brand new album ‘Psychoacusis’.



Jonathan’s music is a diverse melange of styles from pop to rock via rhythm and blues, ska, funk, rockabilly and jazz, with comparisons to Bowie via Blur, Chic, Talking Heads, Pixies and a touch of Edward Lear !


Quirky, whimsical, with treacle black humour, Jonathan himself says of his songs 'they're a little like Gerald Scarfe illustrations set to music’.


Joined on stage by the uber talents of Jim Streets (guitar) and Tony Holt (drums) fans attending shows find the biggest dilemma is whether to listen with rapt attention to the tales, or dance with abandon to the spine tingling music !
