DR HOOKA: Dr Hooka’s Surgery, The Wheatsheaves, Frome (2015)

Surgery Dr HookaThe world of music contains a number of those who have awarded themselves the title of ‘Dr’ despite the lack of any apparent evidence of medical (or other advanced academic) credentials but, to the best of my knowledge, only one actually possesses his own surgery.
