Camper Van Beethoven

Camper Van Beethoven

Profile:
California avant-garde/post-punk/country outfit who formed while students at the University of California at Santa Cruz.

This university consists of several "colleges," each with a different style of living facility and academic focus. College V, which was later renamed Porter College, has always been the home to the more artistic/"weird"/misfit students; Camper Van Beethoven was named along the initials "CVB" (College V B-dorm).
