Default Can anyone put a name to this 70's band?

I'm trying to put a name to a band I found on here and which I thought I'd saved the thread it was mentioned in. Sadly, no.

Anyway, the band was a 70's rock/blues outfit and had a name that began with something like Hap, Hip, Hop, Hup, etc, etc.

Can anyone help me? I can't remember the thread where I found it.

Thanks

Hot Tuna? Hootie and the Blowfish? Could you narrow it down to a country of origin? You could also look here:

Rock Bands - from A to Z

It might also help to know if they were popular or obscure.

Thanks Steve, but no it wasn't any of those bands and they're also not in your link.

I guess they must be a bit obscure - I've not heard of them before, but I was born in the 70's so I wouldn't know if they were big on the "underground" scene or not - they certainly aren't a name that is a well played in the UK, even on the "hits from yesterday" kind of shows.

I'd say their style was perhaps more blues/folk rock rather than rock.

Thanks for the help though.

Nope, none of them, but on a positive note if I hadn't lost that thread I wouldn't have started this one, and then I wouldn't have discovered Pig Iron
