The Faction
The Faction
The Faction is a hardcore punk rock band from San Jose, California. Pioneers of the skate punk era during the early 1980s, their longest stint being from Halloween 1982 until Halloween 1985, The Faction were one of the first bands whose music and lifestyle tastes centered on punk rock and skateboarding. An early demo tape had these words inscribed on the label, "Music By Skaters For Skaters." All original band members and their subsequent replacements are accomplished skateboarders, most notably bass and guitarplayer and legendary professional skateboarder Steve Caballero. In the early years of the band Caballero was instrumental in attracting a large following of skateboarders to the band. Apart from a few one-off shows, the band was dormant from 1985 until reuniting in 2014. The band also includes Gavin O'Brien (Vocals), Adam Bomb Segal (Guitar), Ray Stevens II (Bass) and Keith Rendon (Drums).

The fury of old-school, Punk Rock welded to the punishing drive of Metal describes the sonic assault of Denver's longest running thrash/punk band CLUSTERFUX. Forged by a love for the classics in both the Metal and Punk genres CLUSTERFUX have been delivering their brand of Crossover to those willing (and even those unwilling!) to listen since October of 1995. Hundreds of chaos crazed, live bouts later CLUSTERFUX is still at it. Many compilations and self released offerings later Boston's Rodent Popsicle Records released their latest CD appropriately titled "Thrash Mongrel" in the Winter of '02. In a musically challenged climate where Pop Punk rules and cloned "Punks" are afraid to break from the mold, CLUSTERFUX hammers listeners again and again with fist-in-the-air Punk Rock aggression and heavy as metal sensibility. The unrelentless thrashing mayhem has left many a critic confused. Called everything from "cheesy metal" to "crust", "hard-core" and "speed metal" one thing is for sure!…CLUSTERFUX will kick your ass! "Thrash or Be Thrashed!" WARNING!!!! -Your parents will not like this, they will not think it's cute, it will scare them, and you cannot get the CD at Hot Topic!!!!
Clusterfux's have shared the stage with: Jag Panzer, Silencer, DRI, Citizen Fish, Toxic Narcotic, UK Subs, Vice Squad, Word Salad, Logical Nonsense, Conflict, Good Riddance, Anti-Flag, Against All Authority, the Forgotten and many, many others!Influences include: DRI, Slayer, SOD, Anthrax, Overkill, Exodus, Black Sabbath, English Dogs, the Exploited, GBH, Broken Bones, and tons more!!_
