An eight-member crew of Washington, DC-based youngsters, age eleven to seventeen, the Junkyard Band played their funky go-go music on overturned buckets instead of drums because they didn’t have the money for more conventional instruments. Produced by Rick Rubin, a big fan of go go, the Junkyard Band’s only Def Jam single “Sardines” b/w “The World” earned them a place among “The Greatest Bands You’ve (Probably) Never Heard” in Spin magazine’s August 2009 issue.
