Hey Molly are an independent rock band based in Teignmouth, Devon.. Members include Jordan West, Mat Key, Rob Perry and Oli Iwirn. The band supported Muse at the 2006 Eden Project concert, by sending in a demo tape and thereby winning a competition.
Following two prior rehearsal sessions, Chris Wolstenholme played percussion for the band during a Sub TV session, on the 12th of March 2008. The songs played included Wayward Country Boy, Backstreet Boozer Loser and Lately. The performance took place in a studio in Elephant and Castle, London. The reason for Wolstenholme stepping in for the Hey Molley's drummer was apparently that the latter was on holiday with family. He implied at the time that Hey Molly would be supporting Muse sometime during 2008 or 2009.
The band also supported Muse at the Seaside Rendezvous in Teignmouth. Despite not many people knowing their songs before-ahnd their songs, everyone seemed to love them.
Wolstenholme apparently thought Hey Molly are "one of the best" up-and-coming bands in the UK, having been impressed first by their supporting performance at the aforementioned Eden Project concert.
At around 2010, guitarist Jordan West formed a duo called Moriaty. Wolstenholme also collaborated with them on the song Bones.
