Formed in Southeastern Massachusetts, USA early in 1980, initially as a trio (Frank Michaels, Peter Bevilacqua, and Richard Brown) to which shortly afterwards Tommy McKnight was added. With this line-up they played for almost five years, and appeared on stage 115 times, from Feb 81 until July 1985. Not strictly a "hardcore band" yet strong on the political side, they shared the bill with many of the best punk/HC bands of the time.

Late in 1984 Tom and Rick were replaced by Laurel Bowman (on vocals) and Steve Welch (on drums).

In 1995 3 of the 4 original members (with the exception of Tommy McKnight) went on to form Churn.
