(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!
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.
