Here's some more CABOOSE memories.
This band here CROATAN pre-dated all of the now familar male / female guitar/drums duo type bands by a decade. They got signed to Man's Ruin Records and released a few things with them as well as putting out material on their own. CROATAN really didn't fit into the pre-described genre holes of punk or metal. They appealed to those who liked it all.
CROATAN were from Ohio which might be why most people never heard of em. If they hailed from one of those "cool & hip" citioes then maybe they would've been on the cover of magazines.
