From Folk roots to the Next….. just Add It Up When Things Go Wrong

Robin Lane with early roots in the Los Angles folk music scene moved east and eventually to Cambridge in 1978. There the Chartbusters were formed with Asa Brebner, Leroy Radcliffe, Scott Raerenwad, and Tim Jackson. In the midst of the punk and new wave scene, the music with Robin Lane & The Chartbusters took on a new edge.

Watch Robin Lane and the Chartbusters live video from 1979 “When Things Go Wrong” here:


The Violent Femmes in the early 80’s played the coffee house and street corner scene. Their music was a cross between American folk music and punk rock. Band members Brian Ritchie, Victor DeLorez, and lead vocalist
Gordon Gano helped define the idea of folk punk.

Check out the Femmes “Add It Up” here:
