The Hungry Sox / Socks were a mid - eighties, pre-Inspiral Carpets and classic Stone Roses, kind of reverse super-group who managed to be both unambitious and ambitious at the same time and comprised members of various Oldham / Manchester bands.
Mainly a "for fun" band their set included songs such as Nelson's Eyeball and a version of the The Sonics' "Psycho".
