Jason and the Scorchers are one of the original alternative country bands. They formed in Nashville, Tennessee in 1981 when Jason Ringenberg, raised on a hog farm in northern Illinois and fresh out of college, came careening into Nashville looking for a "rock n' roll wild band" and found the Scorchers, three Nashville upstarts who had punk-rock leanings, stand-up comedian attitudes, great musical chops, and more than their share of vices.
About The Dunes There are few words to describe the alternative rock sounds of The Dunes from Norfolk, Va. This bad ass 4 piece band is dedicated to upholding the rock n roll traditions of rebellion, outspokenness, and musical power. The Dunes pay homage to the legends of rock with a foundation of mean beats and original riffs. They rock the stage with an explosion that blasts every ones ears when the sound of their extraordinary music comes from the speakers, expressing their feelings and thoughts through the words and rythms of their music.
"Hide away yer daughters, stow away yer beer
Lock up yer livestock Thee Walton boys are here!!" Thee Waltons created havoc from 1986 to 1996 with their unique blend of twisted hillbilly rock 'n' roll.

They released three albums, a single and two live videos as well as appearing on several compilations under record deals with Raucous Records and Cherry Red Records.
Like The Pogues, but with more teeth. There is a good old Country feel and topics vary between being poor and
being drunk ...
Formed in 1986 and re-formed for a reunion in 2008 with a series of gigs at Guilfest Festival in Surrey that definitely went down a storm!
Toy Dolls are an English punk rock band formed in 1979. While much punk rock is political or angry, Toy Dolls worked within the esthetics of punk to express a sense of fun, with songs such as "Yul Brynner Was A Skinhead", "My Girlfriend's Dad's A Vicar" and "James Bond Lives Down Our Street." There is often alliteration in their song titles (e.g. "Peter Practice's Practice Place", "Fisticuffs in Frederick Street", "Neville is a Nerd").
