The Independents are a band predicated on Iron Maiden and Conway Twitty. I shouldn't have to write another word. But I get paid for this. The ska-derived South Carolinian punks caught the ear of Joey Ramone, who along with with Ramones producer Daniel Rey, did their album Back From the Grave
before Ramone's death in 2001. They are a potent mix of skate rat punk and limey Ska. They have a formidable bass player who elevates the dialog between Eddie
and Mr. Twitty
. You could dance yourself into a respectable mess with these freaks in charge. And you should. Video evidence below.
