Girls Against Boys formed in 1988 in Washington, DC originally as a side project of Eli Janney, Fugazi's Brendan Canty, and Scott McCloud (then of the Dischord band Soulside), on vocal duties. Canty soon left to concentrate on Fugazi and Soulside's Johnny Temple and Alexis Fleisig joined to complete the bands line up. After relocating to New York, the band released 6 albums (including 3 on Touch and Go and 1 on Geffen) and toured the US and the rest of the world multiple times. They last played together at 2006's All Tomorrow Parties in New York and Los Angeles and their last proper tour was in 2002.
