(Here's another re-post per request; new recordings, and scans)
Riff Doctors were a short lived four piece from (I believe) the Hoboken NJ area. I found a track on one of the Teenline comps that suggests they were from Durham, NC,? Anyway, I'm pretty sure this was their only record; it was put out on Steve Fallon’s Coyote records label, who formerly owned Maxwell’s, a great club in Hoboken. After this, Donna Esposito, (formerly of The Cyclones) joined the band, and they changed their name to “Cowboy, and Spin Girl”. There's a cassette only release you can hear over at the great Wilfully Obscure Blog. As usual, information is very limited; so if I have something wrong, or there’s something you would like to add, please feel free.

By request, here’s another re-post from a couple of years ago. Instead of reposting both records separately; I decided to re-record, and combine (what i consider to be the highlights) from them into one.
The White Animals were from Nashville, Tennessee. During a span of seven years between 1980, and 1987, they released four LP’s, an EP, a Live LP, and at least a single, or two. If you would like to read more about the White Animals, here’s a bio at Allmusic, and their Myspace.
William Collins – Guitar, Vocals
Kevin Gray – Rhythm Guitar, Organ, Vocals
Stevie Boyd – Bass, Vocals
Ray Crabtree – Drums
Sorry I haven't been very active lately. I've been pretty busy, and all of this storage site crap has kind of robbed me of my enthusiasm. I just started working on something pretty cool for ya; but in the meantime, by request, I re-posted:
Shotgun Solution's purpose is sharing my passion for pre 1990's records and underground music. If your a band, label, etc. looking for exposure or if you want to contact me about anything to do with post 1990's music; check out my new blog, Neoteric Melodies. For anything else or if your not into having your record featured here, you can contact me here, enjoy!
Here's a few records I'm looking for; some rare, some not so rare. Please click on this linkto see them. If you have an extra copy to sell me or maybe even trade; I would love to hear from you. Maybe you can even point me in the direction of someone who may have a copy to sell. I would prefer to "buy"; although I may still have a few things I might be willing to part with; my collection is pretty condensed these days.. If you think you might be able to help me out on any of these... Please Email Me at: email@example.com
Unfortunately, all of my pre 2/19/12 online files were lost during the takedown of Megaupload. I hope to eventually fix all of my broken links in time. But until then, if there's something you really want to hear I’ll consider requests.
