London Down/The Raging Marys

For fans of:Gaslight Anthem, Social Distortion, R.E.M., The Replacements

London Down rose out of the San Francisco Bay Area’s fertile college rock scene of the late 1980s, boasting a signature sound that mixes garage-band grit, jangly electric folk and punchy rock grooves.

The chemistry that propelled this quartet to the upper ranks of the West Coast college rock scene remains unchanged.

The band reformed in 2018 and has released a handful of albums and singles.

London Down changed gears and became The Raging Marys from 1988-1991, part of a West Coast pre-grunge movement just before grunge exploded in the Pacific Northwest. The band released the indie "Birthday" on Nov. 17, 1989. 

The Marys will release a remastered version of the album on May 21, 2021, preceded by the single "BellaRose" (out April 16).
