Hometown: Los Angeles, CA (USA)


Almost 17 years ago (Sept.–Oct. 1989) in Pomona Valley, CA was the birth of Total Chaos. Created out of the desperate need to save a dying genre of punk rock– during a time that the market was saturated with a more commercial new style. Along the side of a dedicated few other bands who believed in the dying genre and all that it represented– to them it was not only music– but a forum– to convey important political and social views. One of those allies was Jay Lee from Resist and Exist who with Total Chaos started organizations such as–UVP(United Valley Punks) OCP(Orange County Peace Punks) and AGC (Alternative Gathering Collective)– holding social events like– Food Not Bombs– giving support to the Big Mountain Indian Reservation and helping to open the Los Angeles Anarchist Center. The idea of social responsibility to both bands was a significant thing– from organizing peace punk picnics– to protesting against the Gulf War– their music had meaning and stood for something.
