Drawing their inspiration from the raw nostalgia of '60s rock, the Woggles added their own hybrid of surf, R&B, rockabilly, and blues upon their 1987 formation. Based out of Athens, GA, the band eventually released a handful of EP on Zontar, Estrus, and Lance Rock Records between 1990 through 1993, Estrus Records packaged the bands first full-length, Teen Dance Party, in 1993. Following the Zontar Sessions album a year later on Estrus, Telstar Records put out the Woggles third full-length, Get Tough!, in 1997, amongst another batch of 7"s in between. The mini-album Wailin' with the Woggles came out on One Louder Records the following year.
KSMB never fared very well with the critics. But while they've always stood in the shadows of the critically hailed Ebba Grön, at their height of fame in the early '80s they were able to draw almost as big crowds. Where Ebba Grön were angry and serious and in some ways lyrical, KSMB were more playful and had a stronger "don't give a damn" attitude. Maybe KSMB didn't have the same talent when it came to lyrics, but this, together with their approach and their singalong friendliness, in a way only made them more punk. After their first album, KSMB developed a slightly softer sound, similar to what would later be called punk-pop. The band only held together until 1982, but the last year it was one of the most popular live acts in Sweden. After that, KSMB members were involved with other bands (Strindberg, Stockholms Negrer) until they reunited in 1993, but that didn't prove very successful.
Honeycomb Bones are from Hull, England. They play a very interesting mix of noisy garage rock garnished with psychedelic touches. So far, they have only released three digital EPs which they have made are available for free.

The Spaniards Boogie Punkers became known as "a fast rock n' roll, psychotic swing, futuristic rockabilly, surf punk band. The 50's soundtrack mutated for the 21st century". They avoided typical examples, not limiting themselves in one particuler genre. Their first self-titled album was released in 2003, and their second one (suitably entitled The Brooklyn Sessions) was recorded live in Broolkyn, NY. The Boogie Punkers disbanded in 2007, after which their members got into other musical projects.
Ebba Grön was a Swedish punk/rock band. The band was formed in 1977 by Joakim Thåström (Pimme), Gunnar Ljungstedt (Gurra) and Lennart Eriksson (Fjodor), all from Rågsved, a suburb of Stockholm, Sweden. Their debut album, We’re Only in it for the Drugs, was released in 1978. After their second album Kärlek & Uppror (“Love & Revolt”) in 1981, Anders Sjöholm (Stry Terrarie) joined them. Their third album, released in 1982 and simply named Ebba Grön, also became their last; the band never recovered after Fjodor went to jail for four months for refusing to do military service, and the group disbanded in 1983. The three remaining members went on to form the group Rymdimperiet, which soon became the influential rock band Imperiet. “Ebba Grön” was a code name the Swedish police used in an operation against a terrorist group (a part of the German Red Army Faction), planning to kidnap the Minister for Immigration, Anna-Greta Leijon, in 1976. Their probably most famous and most played song is "Staten och Kapitalet" (“The State and the Capital”, roughly translated) and is a song purely and very directly critical towards the Swedish politics and politicians of the time, or maybe unjust politicians in general. The song is actually a cover of Blå Tåget’s "Den ena handen vet vad den andra gör" (“The one hand knows what the other hand is doing”).
