In somewhat seriousness I was going to post a Janks video for “laughs,” as they played a couple of cheesy covers last night, but when I listened to their original stuff online it wasn’t bad and I was going for laughs so instead…

  1. Adrian Zmed’s wikipedia entry shows that these are indeed his sons. Forget interviews with the likes of Nick Lowe, I can’t believe you didn’t forge an opportunity to interview these two and, could it have been possible, maybe lead to an interview with AZ himself.

    I know Mr. Mod is in that exclusive club that I belong to, The T,J, Hooker Fan Club? Sammy, are you a member as well?

    • Et tu, Al? In college Sammy and I bonded over Hooker as much as we did music. He owns the box set in dvd and has been known to travel with it.

      • What box set?!?! I only know of (and own) the Complete Season 1 & 2. I wasn’t aware the other seasons were released. Tell me more.

        If ever there was something for which the phrase “it’s so bad, it’s good” holds true, it’s TJ Hooker. The acting – by the regulars, guest stars, cameos – is uniformly terrible and the plots were laughable. Put it all together and it’s great.

        • Maybe that’s what he has, the Complete Seasons 1 & 2. A cable station, HDNET (?), has been running the show nightly the last 6 months or so. All that you mention about the show’s strengths still holds up.

          I’ve got the “Complete First and Secons Seasons”, which comes with the original TV promos for 24 episodes. The promos alone are worth the price.

          I warmly greet you, al, as a fellow brother and supporter of Thomas Jefferson Hooker and the renowned LCPD.

  2. I’m thrilled to learn of the rocking of the sons of Officer Vince Romano, but am disappointed we have no iphone proof of this event. Sometimes a reporter has to overcome their understandable infatuation and awe to get the story. Especially when seeing that the Janks band link has already been suspended. I wanted to send them a pitch about launching a TV show of 2 brothers that are cops during the day, and rock stars at night. Possible title: Wanted: Zmed or Alive. Still working on that.

  3. I really wanted to post Deke Dickerson’s instrumental tribute, “T.J. Tuck & Roll”, here, but I can’t find it on the YousTube.
