Album Notes
The Hoot Hoots are vandals: they gave some uppers to Neutral Milk Hotel, threw out the preciousness of the Shins, kidnapped the Fab Four's Rocky Raccoon and then home-schooled in Catchy Guitar Rock 101.

About The Hoot Hoots
As a combined force, the Prairie brothers have been playing together for several years. Adam rocketed out of his mother's womb wielding a beautiful sunburst finish Telecaster and slammed a power chord that caused minor malfunctions in all of the surrounding hospital applicances. He patiently waited for three years until Chris sprung forth in a similar display of pomp and glory, except he wielded mighty tree trunks as drum sticks and with these, he thundered mighty beats on the thighs of his exhausted mother.

Under various, ever-changing aliases (Least Beast, The Eighty and Above Club, Long Hair Lightning and the Luminaires, Super Powered Ass Monkeys, etc.), they have finally stuck with the memorable moniker, The Hoot Hoots. The initial idea of using repeated words was almost a hit with Least Beast, but since these words have completely different meanings, this name tragically incapacitated their audience (which was mainly comprised of a hampster, two dirty socks, a belligerent tank, my Aunt Sophie, and a small colony of homunculi). This catastrophe necessitated a change, a mighty, elegant name, one worthy of Grecian princes, Prussian princesses, and cantankerous Czarinas. Hence, The Hoot Hoots.


The previous years of name-changing, accidentally kicking members out of the band, and having sex with your mother were over. The days of shameless love and covering Journey and Poison songs were distant concentric circles in a quickly fading past. It was time to start having a band with some soul, some funk, some yeah-I-like-it-down-there-hot-stuff, and some sweetness like a strawberry sundae seven Saturdays through September. MMMMM, ice cream. The Hoot Hoots got all jacked up and started raising hell.


Back DEMON! Back!

Alright, where was Mr. Narrator in telling this story. The Hoot Hoots were originally a (S)Kankakee based band. Now they reside all over the place. Some of them on the freaking moon. Generally, the Hoot Hoots have played in various locales in Illinois but are looking to change that come summer. If you like the Hoot Hoots, send us some love at

Best wishes to you all.

Bios of Current Members

Adam Prairie - Guitar, Vocals, Dictator For Life

Adam is the Mario Kart king of the world and plays the guitar, banjo, and all sorts of instruments. Adam once lit a dog on fire and shoved the whole thing in his mouth. He'll show you the scars to prove it.

Chris Prairie – Drums, Commander in Chief

Chris is a Cancer and a downright MONSTER/Muppet/animal. Anybody who has seen his beard hasn’'t lived to tell about it… or possibly they just don’'t want to talk about it.

Cooper Smith - Guitar, vocals, old man

Geoff Brown - Bass, Sex appeal

Christina Ellis – Trumpet, keyboard, Chainsaw juggler

Christina has been known to steal money from old ladies and make good pizzas… sometimes at the same time. People say if Christina were more like Alf she'’d probably be on TV a lot more.
