The Rockingbirds, who exploded out of Camden Town in the early Nineties and wrote the book for credible UK country, play Norwich Arts Centre on Wednesday (8pm).
They released their ground-breaking self-titled debut album through Heavenly Recordings on Columbia in 1992 to critical acclaim.
Much-loved equally by alternative music fans, country aficionados and singer-songwriter buffs, the North London-based outfit stamped their maverick country-rock brand on the young Camden Town scene.
Defiantly bucking UK trends of the early '90s, The Rockingbirds anticipated the alt-country revolution, and sit comfortably alongside like-minded contemporaries such as The Jayhawks and Uncle Tupelo.

The Rockingbirds recently played at the Forever Heavenly festival celebrating 18 years of Heavenly Recordings at the Southbank in September, and attracted a large amount of press and public interest. That show sold out in minutes, prompting Sony to re-issue the debut record for the first time since its initial release.
