Lake Edward's Original Hoppers

Fictional jazz band from the oddball 1945 novel The Memoirs of a Shy Pornographer by Kenneth Patchen.

The band's songs are "When You Feel Like God Done Close' His Big Shop" and "They Put My Baby On That Little Dark Sad Train." Lake Edward is in Minnesota.

The band is mixed in a list with other, real and fake jazz bands and the list described as: "These are the disks you'll have to get if you want a basic jazz library," by one Milen Berg.

Not to be confused with Lake Edward's Second Detroit Boys, or maybe they are.
