"Short-lived rockabilly rock band featuring sibling vocalists Vernon, Ruby and John Orson, who also played guitars and were backed by Vincent (bass) and David O. (drums).
(...) The Orson Family wasn't really a family. They were formed around 1982 in England. Vernon and Ruby lived together (they were engaged but never married). Brewster and David O. are actually the same person. They soon added a trumpet player called Kevin but nicknamed Elmer. They quoted Hank Williams, Link Wray, Bunker Hill, Vincent, Cochran, Lou Reed, The Jam as influences.
They records a self released 3 track EP, a six track mini LP "The River of Desire", the 12" EP "No-one Waits Forever", a live LP "Bugles, Guitars & Amphetamine" and another single The Sweetest Embrace but with another singer as Skully left/was fired soon before."  Source
