Lord Rockingham’s XI was a group of British session musicians, led by Harry Robinson (1932-1996). The group was put together to play as the resident band on the pop TV programme, Oh Boy!, which was shown nationally on ITV in the UK in 1958/59.
They recorded several novelty rock instrumentals for Decca Records, the first being “Fried Onions”, and the second single, Robinson’s “Hoots Mon”, a rocked-up version of the traditional Scottish song, “A Hundred Pipers”, rose up the charts supported by weekly TV exposure, and stayed at number one for three weeks.

Following a legal case brought by descendants of the real Lord Rockingham, which was settled out of court, the group toured and made several less successful follow-ups, including “Wee Tom” (#16, 1959)They disbanded with the end of the TV show in 1959.
