Rail  


Rail is best known for winning a national MTV battle-of-the-bands competition in 1983, the prize being a recording contract with EMI. Before that, they had built up a loyal following in their native state of Washington, self-releasing the respectable Arrival album in 1980. The EMI deal ultimately didn't amount to much (a single 4-song EP that apparently didn't impress EMI enough to re-sign them), but it's still a noteworthy achievement. The band has released the odd album over the years, including a twentieth-year anniversary re-release of Arrival.
