Screw 32

Hometown: Berkeley, CA (USA)


Screw 32 was a Berkeley/East Bay area punk rock band. Their name is derived from an anti–skateboarding measure on the ballots in Concord, California. Andrew Champion, Grant McIntire, Jimi Mcluskey, Josh Kilbourn, and Douglas Sangalang were the original members of the band. They were noted for self–publicity and a very strict code of labor and democracy. For example, they ordered stickers by the thousands and stuck them in numerous places. SCREW32 was actually one of the very few truly D.I.Y. bands in the east bay although they were surrounded by bands that claimed to be under the same flag. They made their own flyers, screened their own shirts, and helped with every possible aspect of the process of being in the band. They were also known to "tag" their name with sharpies on numerous objects and in numerous places; the results of which have been seen in places all over the country. Most of these incidents are apparently done without permission. One notable sighting was in the Grassy Knoll near where Lee Harvey Oswald allegedly assassinated President John F. Kennedy. These stickers have also been seen on bumpers of police cars all over the Bay Area.
