About:

Santa Barbara's pride and joy, LAGWAGON, has been belting 'em out since 1990. Their catchy brand of punk is an infectious blend of pop and hardcore, lyrically tackling an array of personal politics. This punky quintet secured a massive worldwide following with their five FAT full lengths and a touring schedule that would have made the Stones blush. And we won't even mention their hotel–trashing on tour antics. . . Lagwagon is taking it a bit easier these days while singer Joey runs his own record label and the other guys do whatever it is the other guys do. . .drummer Dave has been spotted lately moonlighting as drummer for both Good Riddance and Me First and the Gimme Gimmes (Joey is in Me First and the Gimme Gimmes as well). Guitarist Chris Rest, more commonly referred to as Leon, spends his free time working with sufferers of allergy disorders. Jesse is missing in action in the Santa Cruz mountains (if anyone sees Jesse, can you please send him to Fat–), and Chris Flippin is off in Santa Barbara being unusually tall.
