Let's play a game of "Stump the Thread", by mentioning a band no-one else has heard of. Local bands will probably make up the most of it and, hell, local bands always deserve more credit!

Rocketsmiths are, sadly, a broken up band from my state. They had a really varying sound, and I was sad they broke up. Ah well. This song is nice and bouncy; I love it.

Outlaw Social is a Canadian roots band I found randomly searching on youtube. They, like Rocketsmiths, have broken up, which is a shame, but DAMN is their music great.

Zombie Ghost Train, yet another broken up band, was an Australian psychobilly group. Very tongue in cheek, and the music is good, too.
