Hookers Green No 1 Aberdeen


Hookers Green No 1 are an Aberdeen rock band who often play in Aberdeenshire venues such as The Tunnels. They tour clubs and venues throughout the UK such as Inverness, Glasgow, Manchester, Brighton, Newcastle and London. They have a number of singles under their belt and have produced one album called On How the Illustrious Captain Moon Won the War for Us with a second album to be released in 2006. This will include their popular songs, Celebration Apocalypse and Everyone In Your Scene Is Dead So Join Ours.


The name of the group, Hookers Green No. 1 came from a shade of paint. The Aberdeen band consist of two guitar players, a drummer, a bass player, a saxaphonist and a laptop! Hookers Green No. 1 formed in the year 2000.







I have published a book which tells the story of an Aberdonian military nurse who returns from Afghanistan and encounters The Grey Lady Ghost of the Cambridge Military Hospital. The novel reveals her origins and takes him to a pre-war Duthie Park, modern day Cruden Bay and back to the past to the Battle of Loos in World War One where he witnesses the Gordon Highlanders in action. This is the first in the series of Grey and Scarlet Novels by me, CG Buswell, and each book will feature a well known Aberdeen ghost and Aberdeenshire area as well as modern Scottish Infantry in action. Read the first chapter for free.
