"Demon Dog Sperm - Hopeless - I don't think that band names can sink any lower than this."

That is REALLY bad, but it's hard to beat "Jesus Christ and the Nailknockers."

Any idea who's playing in that Yardbirds disc, particularly the guitar?

This is all I could find out:
"The band features founding members Jim McCarty and Chris Dreja, guitarist Ben King, vocalist John Idan, and harmonica player Billy Boy Miskimmin." And this was recorded in 2006.
