The Remains have all survived their horrible smash. Sally Ruth reports: Local alt country band The Re-Mains have been forced to take a break for a few months after a serious car accident last week. Not long after their tour van left Tennant Creek they hit a steer and were forced off the road. The drummer and guitarist in the front of the van suffered serious injuries and will need months to recover. Luckily the other three band members escaped with minor injuries.
