The Queers are a pop punk band from Portsmouth, New Hampshire, formed in 1982. Singer/Guitarist/Songwriter Joe King has been the principal member of the group, with a vast number of musicians cycling in and out of the band over the years. Supposedly, the band name 'Queers' was used simply to poke fun at what he called the "Art Fag" community in NH. That same brand of humor and inanity has become a staple of The Queers music, who have produced songs such as "Can't Stop Farting", "Born to Do Dishes", and "I Didn't Get Invited To The Prom" in their own Ramones-esque style.
There's at least two bands that have performed under the name Decadent Few. 1) Formed in East London in 1984 by Kaya, Mike, Bernie and Mark of Youth in Asia, plus Steph of Hagar the Womb briefly, Decadent Few’s first gig was at Studio One in Slough, June 1984. Mark and Steph had stepped out by this point and a friend, Gary, was taught Bass by Mike in vintage Paul Simenon-style, i.e. coloured stickers on the frets to denote where to play which note which song.
THE DRILLS are a Los Angeles based trio who are phil, j-bo and dan. phil the drill (guitar and throat)
writes the songs which are inspired by cool things
that isky and scott say at work and bounces them off of...
j-bo drill a.k.a. the dangler (drums) who offers
arrangement ideas along with the odd chord change.
lieutenant dan drill plays (bass) because he kicks ass
and can sing. At a time where nothing is seemingly original in music, THE DRILLS
True Rock n Roll, with a twist motherfucker.

There are two equally long-lived punk bands with the name Subhumans, one from the UK and one from Canada: 1) Subhumans (UK): An anarcho-punk band formed in Trowbridge, Wiltshire, UK in 1979 by Dick Lucas, who had formerly been in local bands including The Mental and Stupid Humans. The band released a demo in 1981 which was heard by members of the band Flux of Pink Indians after being sent to them by Graham Burnett of New Crimes fanzine, who were so impressed that they offered the Subhumans a chance to put out a record on their newly formed Spiderleg label.
According to Initial Records summer 1997 catalog, one of the best definition of Guilt's sound's given by Andy (who used to run this fabulous label): " If there is a such thing as emo death metal, then this is certainly it. Super thick guitars, tortured screaming, and drumming that is always where it needs to be... it's angry, tearing and emotional; fulminating the burdens of hierarchal society...". According to Trustkill fanzine - 'fuckin' monumental.'
