Every show has a director who has the job of making a playlist and guiding the weekly three hour rehearsals - and all of them are working musicians, generally from local/regional bands (it's a good job for a working musician - you don't have to get up before noon.) The rest of the show were the usual suspects - Sex Pistols, Buzzcocks, the Damned, the Ramones - with a few lesser-knowns like Alternative TV, Sonic's Rendezvous Band and Death. The kids also have weekly one-on-one lessons on their song. This goes on for 12-16 weeks, then they have a pair of shows in a real venue.
