The band was conceived in 1991, and was originally named Solid State. Orignal line up consisted of Chris Galas (vocals), Scott Dressler (guitar), Joe Smith (guitar), Daryl Taberski (bass), and Mike Kimaid (drums). After the release of their first 7 inch “Comatose”, Galas was replaced on vocals by Taberski, Jon Salemi joined and replaced Joe Smith. and Bob Whiteside took over on bass. In 1993, Kimaid left the band and was replaced on drums by Tim Redmond. Their first full length “Lookinglassself” was released in 1993. In 1995, the band released the “Steps” EP. This was the last recording to feature Scott Dressler, who left the band in the fall of 1995. He was replaced by Frank Vicario. In the summer of 1996, “The California Takeover” was released which featured live recordings from Snapcase, Earth Crisis, and Strife.

April 1997 saw the release of “Progression Through Unlearning”. The band set out on a summer tour, and featured performances on the Vans Warped Tour. In the fall of 1997, the band took some time off so that members could pursue education. In 1998, the band resumed touring, and was the opening band on the fall tour of the Deftones. A split EP was released in the summer of 1999 with Boy Sets Fire. These were the last recordings with bassist Bob Whiteside. He was replaced by Dustin Perry, formerly of the Minnesota band Threadbare. They headlined Hellfest that summer in Syracuse, NY.

“Designs For Automation” was released in January 2000. They spent most of 2000 on tour, and performed on the Deconstruction tour in Europe with NOFX, played the main stage of the Vans Warped Tour in the summer. Ben Lythberg began playing drums for the band during the fall, winter and spring while Redmond finished his masters degree.

In September 2002, “End Transmission” was released. Redmond left the band and was replaced by Lythberg. They toured that fall with Boy Sets Fire and Atreyu. The final European tour was in early 2003. They opened for Bad Religion and Finch in the spring of 2003. “Bright Flashes” was released in November 2003. This featured songs that were recorded for End Transmission, along with covers of songs by Helmet, Devo, and Jane’s Addiction along with 3 remixes of songs from End Transmission. One of the album’s songs, Skeptic, was featured on the game Need for Speed Underground 2 as in-game music. The band announced in the fall of 2004 that they would be disbanding, and would play their final show in January 2005 in Buffalo, NY. The final show featured appearances by almost of every member who had ever played in the band. Redmond, Dressler, and Whiteside joined Salemi and Taberski for a performance of the song ‘Lookinglasself”, and orignal vocalist Chris Galas joined them for the song “Comatose”.

The band claimed to have been on “a mission to combine intellectual theory with aggressive music”. The members of the band are all straight edge, but according to Frank Vicario, they’re “not really singing about it or promoting it”.

After Snapcase dissolved, Vicario, Perry and Lythberg formed the band Attractive, with Josh English from the band Sixgoingonseven.

Tim Redmond now teaches AP government at Williamsville East High school.

a chorus of disapproval

One of the best bands for me - non-compromising angry straight edge hardcore in the vein of Judge, Inside Out with elements of 90's newschool hardcore. It's fucking crazy band - just listen and read lyrics.

Things were tough all over for a straight edge kid in the Long Beach and Lakewood punk scenes in the 1980s. No scene to speak of had existed in Cerritos since Channel 3 and Hated. And for years Jeff Banks had made his bones with punk rock bands The Imps, Dead Tradition and the seminal California alleycore punk rock outfit Visual Discrimination. Sharing the stage with the likes of the Cro-Mags, Uncle Slam, Excel and Blast!, Banks honed his chops and earned a reputation for being a seemingly endless fountain of hooks and riffs. Isaac Golub was weaned on early 1980s punk shows at the Cuckoo’s Nest, catching every act from FEAR to Suicidal Tendencies. A prodigious writer even as a young child, an early stint with Pasadena punk band Short Circuit lit the fire in Golub’s belly to be heard beyond the poet’s pad. He was bitten by the hardcore bug after singing with the band Identity. The infection of hardcore continued to grow.

A chance meeting between these two in Costa Mesa in 1987 would change everything.

While Banks continued to churn out the goods with Visual Discrimination, It was his brief role as guitarist with Long Beach legends Half-Off that brought him and Isaac to a hardcore common ground. Golub and Banks had mutual friends in the Half-Off circle, and their paths were crossing constantly. At practice sessions for the Shoot Guns EP it was particularly evident that Banks and Golub had a kinship for the art of hardcore, and shared a philosophy that straight edge and hardcore were inextricably intertwined.

While Visual Discrimination had its share of straight edge tunes, it was a punk band. What Banks and Golub were looking for was an avenue to get out what was a hard-sell on the West Coast streets in those days: Aggressive, No-nonsense, Non-compromising Straight Edge Hardcore.

“Something was brewing,” said legendary filmmaker Evan Jacobs. “When Banks and Isaac showed up with their bic-bald heads, X fists and oversized XCHORUSX hooded sweatshirts at the Hard Stance show, and just stood in the back and watched, it was ominous. Both are devastatingly handsome, but it was more than that. It was a churning, swirling maelstrom-in-the-making, and lightning struck that night. You could just tell these guys were the face of Southern California Straight Edge Hardcore.”
