The obligatory influences would be, of course, artists like classic instrumental artists such as The Ventures, Davie Allan & The Arrows, The Trashmen, Link Wray, Dick Dale, The New Dimensions, The Pyramids, The Astronauts, as well as such modern surf/instrumental acts as Satan´s Pilgrims, Shadowy Men on a Shadowy Planet, The Bomboras, The Tiki Tones, Los Straitjackets, and, of course, Man or Astro-Man? And while they remain overwhelmingly uninterested in the banal predictability of the jam band resurgence or in the generic mind-numbing malaise of modern rock or alternative music, The Honkeys don´t find rock ´n´ roll´s original language to be exhausted. They are faithful to their instruments´ traditional vocabularies as they strive to create the instrumental sound of NOW; contemporary in attitude, fresh and exciting in execution.
The Honkeys are: Jeffrey Positive, six-string reverb, hand-held drink mixer specialist, and walker of the spinning yo-yo dog; Cullen ´´Stab´´ McGrane, 4-string reverb, wookie stoicism; Jovian Kind, drums, percussion, laughter; and Micah Edge, Organs and Synthesizer.
