Nothing much is known about the Virginia Vagabonds other than that they had a member called 'Swanny' and recorded these two tracks in 1988 for a Rage Records compilation called 'Outrage Volume Two. Oh yes, they're not the same band as the American one who came a long time before.
The Virginia Vagabonds were formed in august 1988, a meeting of two ´three piece´ bands busking in Amsterdam´s Leidseplein. The two bands, ´The Lonesome Pump Attendants´ from Carlisle and the ´Cottonpickers´ from south London fused to become The Virginia Vagabonds consisting of 2 banjos, 2 guitars, a double bass and a fiddle. The following five and a half months they played over 60 gigs in clubs, colleges and pubs in and around London. Disbanded in 1989.
