Almost 17 years ago (Sept.â€“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 rockâ€“ 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 representedâ€“ to them it was not only musicâ€“ but a forumâ€“ 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 asâ€“UVP(United Valley Punks) OCP(Orange County Peace Punks) and AGC (Alternative Gathering Collective)â€“ holding social events likeâ€“ Food Not Bombsâ€“ 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 thingâ€“ from organizing peace punk picnicsâ€“ to protesting against the Gulf Warâ€“ their music had meaning and stood for something.
