About RETURN TO COMBOLAND
It was the Golden Age of North Carolina Rock music. 1981 thru 1984 brought together a group of extraordinary music and recording artists that reverberated around the world and beyond their time. North Carolina artists such as Arrogance, the dB's, the Fabulous Knobs, Glass Moon, The Spongetones and others would directly influence R.E.M., Hootie and the Blowfish, the Georgia Satellites and more.
The scene would wind up being well documented by Steve Boyle. Steve had come directly from the New York Punk scene of the mid to late 1970's and by pure accident arrived in Raleigh in late 1978. Steve enlisted in the burgeoning Raleigh music scene by shooting broadcast quality video of band performances as well as formal music videos that aired nationally during the infancy of music video channels.
Emmy awarding winning Steve Boyle now blows the dust off his archive and shines light on some of the best music you may have never heard.
With a wealth of unique archival footage and an intimate update of interviews and performances, RETURN TO COMBOLAND is a documentary work-in-progress. This Web site offers video samples of the original Comboland music scene along with some great memorabilia and artists biographies.
