Their lead singer, Kevin Rowland, later formed Dexys Midnight Runners 2. Formed by Craig Pilkington and Anna Burley as a pop-folk group, from Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, received critical acclaim for their 1990 Album Ruby, include receiving an ARIA award for best independent release.
Busting out of the youth centres of Ipswich with all the gusto of a poorly-trained house pet, The Waxing Captors took the local scene by storm with their cathartic blink-and-you'll-miss-'em pop songs and exhausting & unforgiving live performances. The band are currently touring off the back of their latest release "The Trip" recorded on Antigen Records and playing any town that'll spare the sorry suckers a dime, The Waxing Captors are guaranteed to shake a brow and raise an ass.
Formed in November 2000, and had their first gig 8 days later supporting The Vibrators. Previous members include Trotsky (of the Subhumans), and Sandra (from Korrupt). Still unsigned, though have toured the USA and played in Europe - very DIY, releasing their own CD's and DVD's. They are a throwback to old school punk, with a hint of garage punk and ska in there for good measure.
Spazzys are an all-girl punk band formed in 2000 in Melbourne, Australia. They received strong support from Melbourne community radio station 3RRR, before being picked up by popular youth radio station Triple J. They released their debut album Aloha! Go Bananas! in 2004, with singles Paco Doesn't Love Me, Hey Hey Baby and My Boyfriend's Back all charting. They are a constant in the live music scene in Melbourne and have toured nationally several times, often playing festivals such as the Big Day Out.
Graham Parker and the Rumour (led by British rock musician Graham Parker, with Brinsley Schwarz and Martin Belmont on guitars, Bob Andrews on keyboards, Andrew Bodnar on bass and Steve Goulding on drums) formed in the summer of 1975 in London, England, and began doing the rounds of the British pub rock scene. The band was also augmented at times by a four-man horn section known as The Rumour Brass: John "Irish" Earle (sax), Chris Gower (trombone), Dick Hanson (trumpet), and Ray Bevis (sax).
There are at least 2 groups known as The Pirates: 1)The Pirates are a pub-rock band from England. They played in 60's as a backing band to Johnny Kidd (the most notable song of Johnny Kidd and The Pirates is "Shakin' All Over"), and reformed in 76.
Lineup included Frank Farley, Johnny Spence and Mick Green. Mick Green, guitarist of Pirates famous for his unique "choppy-style" guitar playing (lead and rhythm at the same time) which influenced such great musicians as Wilko Johnson of Dr.Feelgood and Pete Townshend of The Who.
Jamaican singer Joe White has had an unsung career, issuing several brilliant singles through the ska, rocksteady, and early reggae eras, including 1967's "Rudies All Around," 1968's "Every Night" (produced by Sonia Pottinger), and an amazing version of "My Guiding Star," produced by Charles Ross at Studio One. Somehow, though, White never garnered the mass attention he deserved. Early on he was a member of vocal group the Leaders with Ken Boothe, Roy Shirley, and Chuck Josephs, and several singles by the quartet were issued on Federal, but none generated much action.
Emmanuel Rodriguez (Rico, Reco, El Reco) (b. 1934) is a Jamaican trombonist. Born on 17th October 1934 in Kingston, Jamaica, by the age of ten he had learnt to play the trombone from strict nuns.

In 1961, Rodriguez moved to Eng;and, where he continued to play in reggae bands.
