Trailer for new documentary about the band Red Weasel.
Before the days when flannel was in fashion and "alternative" music became the sound of mainstream radio across the country, a group of friends dared to change the rules in their small community on the eastern shore of Maryland.
Together, Dean Cartwright, Chet Cornman, Scott Hedeen, Steve Messick, and Adam Robinson formed a new type of punk band. With influences ranging across the spectrum from the Beatles and early Genesis to DC Hardcore and the Butthole Surfers, it was "grunge" at a time when nobody knew what "grunge" was exactly. In the late 80's and early 90's, in the college town of Salisbury, Maryland, Red weasel was making a noise all their own for a group of fans hungry for something more than MTV and radio were providing.
