The band started at Birmingham in 1986 under the line up: Rich - vocals, Paul (Dirk) - guitar, Neil (Lurch) - bass, Steve - drums. With this line up they played a few gigs and recorded some demo tracks and also recorded the song 'The Law' for 'The Sound Of Oi!' compilation. Rich joined the army and was replaced by Martin (Fluffy). They released their first lp in 1988 under the title 'Oi! Kinnock Give Us Back Our Rose' and in 1990 their second lp 'Hard As Nails'. Neil took the vocals duties when Martin left the band and Sid from Section 5 came to bass.

The Arrivals are a four piece from Blue Island, Illinois, Southside of Chicago. They write songs about everything and nothing, sometimes all at once. They sound like Mission of Burma trying to write Kinks songs, though most people have their own f-ed up description that may be just as valid. They've toured with Dillinger Four(with whom they now share a bass player), The Soviettes, Toys That Kill, Rise Against, Tiltwheel, Vena Cava, Grabass Charlestons, and The Lawrence Arms.
FRANKENBOK 2012 Hailing from Melbourne Australia, Frankenbok was born kicking and screaming in 1997. Now with 4 albums and 2 EP’s under their belt, their most recent release, deftly titled “THE END OF ALL YOU KNOW”, is by far the bands heaviest work to date. Musically it is a real blend of heavy metal styles, ranging from thrash, to punk to southern rock riffage and straight up heavy metal, all with a very Australian flavour and distinctive sound that the band have crafted over a 15 year existence.
Although The Rebels weren't around long, they were not short on talent. The group consisted of John Mathews (bariton), "Big" Jim Hamill (later went on to fame with the Kingsmen), Horace Parrish (tenor), and London Parris (bass). Other members included Jay Berry and Jimmy Taylor.
