Alien Rebels - Unofficial First Offering (1991)

Alien Rebels

We saw a brief appearance from the Alien Rebels on the CJSW compilation Local Band Seeks Fans, so it's nice to have unearthed this early cassette from these twangsters. This is great roots rock - fun, catchy and, uh, twangy.

The Alien Rebels have a myspace that appears to repurpose content from a long-deceased website. It reminds us of the pedigree of this band - since this tape, the band has drawn on the talents of a pretty impressive roster. Plus, members have also done turns in Jr Gone Wild and... other bands. Plus, they've been on the CBC a pile.

Did we mention the twanginess?
