About:

Named after guitarist Dave Weston's parents (for allowing the band to rehearse in their basement), the self–deprecating punk band Weston formed in 1990. Like few bands before them, Weston tapped into the emotions of teen–angst, surviving high school and first crushes and turned those into some of the catchiest songs ever written.

After the release of Got Beat Up, the bassist/singer Chuck Saltern left the band and future releases were more Pixies–esque and less Descendents–like then the early releases.

At one point, it looked like Weston was going to be huge; there wrote better songs than Blink–182 and were a hundred times more fun. But conflicts within the band drove Weston to an early grave. If Greg ever writes the Go–kart book he has promised us, the chapters on Weston will be one of the most interesting.
