The Hickey Underworld - Shady transactions

Not just a Belgian band, because this formation won pop magazine Humo's prestigious Rock Rally in 2006.

Evil tongues however accused the Antwerp band of bribery: not the music would have been the deciding factor, but the generously distributed xtc pills, the bottles of vodka and the willing dolls thrown into the jury members' laps would have given The Hickey Underworld the decisive advantage.

Why band name Hickey Underworld - The Nation of Ulysses - Plays_Pretty_for_Baby album coverHowever that may be, the band carries on playing solid rock with metal influences.

The Hickey Underworld is also the title of a song the now defunct American punk rock band Nation of Ulysses (it can be found on the album Plays Pretty for Baby from 1992) and this then was the inspiration for the Belgian band name.
