Anthony Crawford

Anthony Crawford, born May 5, 1957, in Birmingham, Alabama was a "star" in the hospital nursery where he was tagged "Pistol Pete" by the nurses, and has been known by his parents as Pete ever since.

The Remnants

There are two bands known as The Remnants: 1) The Remnants USA, are tunesmiths. They swing from new school rockabilly, to Jangly Pop to Deep South/Blues/Funk/Rock. A lot of bristling energy comes sloshing off their records and their live shows. Plus the lead singer/songwriter (Tom Boynton) writes a fairly hilarious blog on their website: www.myspace.com/theremnantsmd or www.theremnants.com Worth a gander. 2) Three Bristolians playing Pop Punk in the vein of Green Day and the Descendants
