When the bands broke up back in 1985, we pretty much lost touch with the NYHC/punk scene. We only recently discovered there are still fans out there, connecting on the web, looking for our old recordings, ripping our cassettes & file-sharing —which is awesome!!  We're really very honored that you’re still enjoying our music after all these years.  We created this site for you.

These re-releases are just another way to make our stuff available (cuz believes us when we tell ya kids, we ain’t making much scratch off this!)

Look for future releases on this page, including a Cheerleaders “Live at CBGB’s” CD and Unsound side projects like the Grittlesnakes...
