Bright Future?/ Live on Kxlu
SOCIETY GONE MADD!, is from Southern California, and is Rob on Bass & Vocals, Dennis on Guitar and vocals, Walter on Guitar and vocals, & John on Drums. We started around late 1986 or early 1987, with Steve on vocals, Rob on bass, Walter on guitar, and Nick (from Conflict from Arizona) on Drums. Sometime late 1987, we wanted another guitarist and we found Dennis. In 1988, we recorded our first demo at the place we rehearsed at, which I believe was a studio that The Association recorded some of their records. It was recorded by Lee of Dionysus records who helped us a lot at the beginning. In 1989 we recorded in our first LP What Do You Care? It was recorded by Brett Gurewitz of Bad Religion at his studio in Hollywood. After playing many shows in Southern California, Steve decided to leave the band. After an extensive search, we found Jack. In 1991 we played live on radio station KXLU, which was taped and made into a 7 inch on green vinyl. Sometime in 1992 Nick decided to leave, then we got John from Exoteracy. In 1994 we recorded Bright Future? and decided to put it on CD with with Live on KXLU. Society Gone Madd! Started out as a five piece band and have only had a few personnel changes to bring them to their final four piece line up. We were always totally 'do it yourself', we released all our records and booked our own shows. Other releases are 'Save Room for Dessert' CD, 'Society Gone Madd!' 7', Live on KXLU 7' on green vinyl, and the classic punk rock album, 'What Do You Care?' on LP/cassette and now on CD.
