Royal Crown Revue
|Labels||BYO, Surfdog, Warner Bros.|
|Associated acts||Youth Brigade|
The band was founded by Mark Stern, Eddie Nichols, and Mando Dorame out of their love of rockabilly, punk, jazz, and blues. The band included Stern's brothers Jamie, Adam, and Shawn, who were members of the punk band Youth Brigade. Other members included Daniel Glass, Scott Steen, James Achor, Veikko Lepisto, and Bill Ungerman.
From 1996 through 1998, the Royal Crown Revue was engaged in a lawsuit with the Amazing Royal Crowns after much confusion with promoters. In accordance with a July 1998 settlement, the latter band changed its name to the Amazing Crowns; in exchange, the Revue agreed to drop the lawsuit. The band was also sued by Royal Crown Cola and won that suit.
