Cherry Red Records 2010
Someone once said north London mavericks the Sting-Rays were stranded at the end of rock n roll time.

60s and 70s punk, rockabilly, folk rock, psychedelia the band were pretty much outsiders to the mainstream. But the Sting-Rays influence has lingered, touching not just subsequent punkabilly generations, but also
The like s of the New Pornographers A.C.Newman and others in the know.
The band released several singles and albums in the 1980s, but it is as an amazingly energetic live act that they are most fondly remembered.
