Milk would go on to have a cult status with skateboarders. In 1991, with the release of Blind Video Days, Milk’s “The Knife Song” was used in Jason Lee’s segment. Lee, considered one of the most technical street skaters of the time, would go to star in several movies and most notably the TV show My Name Is Earl. Ten years later, “The Knife Song” would resurface to a new audience. Tremaine, now director of Jackass: The Movie, would use “The Knife Song” in the Car Rental Crash Derby segment. Later that year, due to request from fans, Milk would finally release a CD containing “The Shite Song” and four other songs. “Jason’s Song” was a limited edition CD that is still in high demand

Vice Squad formed in 1978 with an initial line-up of Beki Bondage (vocals), Dave Bateman (guitar), Mark Hambly (bass), and Shane Baldwin (drums), and played their first gig at Bristol University’s Anson Rooms on 12 April 1979. Bateman and Baldwin had previously been members of the TV Brakes. The first release by the band was the track “Nothing”, which was included on the 1979 compilation Avon Calling. Members of the band were involved in setting up the Riot City label with Simon Edwards, the label becoming one of the major punk labels of the era. The band took some time to make further impact, only playing six gigs in 1980, but 1981’s debut single “Last Rockers” was well-received, selling over 20,000 copies and spending almost forty weeks in the UK Indie Chart, reaching number 7.[1] The follow-up, “Resurrection”, reached number 4, and the band undertook a tour supporting UK Subs. The singles received airplay and support from BBC Radio 1 DJ John Peel, and they would go on to record two sessions for his show, in 1981 and 1982.

In 1981 the band signed with major label EMI (their Zonophone subsidiary), prompting criticism from many within the DIY punk scene. Their debut album, No Cause For Concern, was released in late 1981, reaching number 32 in the UK Album Chart. A second album followed in 1982, and the band embarked on a tour of the United States and Canada. On returning from the US, Bondage announced that she was leaving the band. She went on to front Ligotage and later Beki and the Bombshells, and without her, Vice Squad were dropped by EMI. The band carried on, however, replacing Bondage with a new singer called Lia (who was previously known as Jools and had been the singer for local band Affairs of the Heart). The new line-up, also including the band’s manager Mark “Sooty” Byrne on second guitar, signed with Anagram Records, and recorded a session for David Jensen’s BBC radio show. Indie hits continued with singles such as “Black Sheep” and “You’ll Never Know”, but sales began to dwindle, and the band split up in 1985. Dave Bateman died in 2007.

The band was founded by drummer Michelle Gonzales (Todd), vocalist Adrienne Droogas, bassist Paula and guitarist Karin Gembus. Paula left the band before the release of the Rasana 7″ EP and was replaced by Dominique Davison.

The band toured the United States, Europe, Australia, New Zealand and Japan. Their records were released on prominent punk rock labelsLookout Records, Allied Recordings and Ebullition Records, including a split LP with the Chicago-based hardcore group Los Crudos.

After the breakup of the group, Davison, Gonzales and Gembus played together in the group Instant Girl, whose sound was less aggressive than that of Spitboy. Instant Girl released an LP on Allied Recordings. Droogas was briefly a member of the group Aus Rotten before moving to Richmond, Virginia. She also wrote columns for the punk zines Heartattack and Profane Existence. Davison is now an architect. Gonzales teaches English at Las Positas College in Livermore, California.

Unwound was an American rock band based in Tumwater/Olympia, Washington. Formed in 1991, the band consisted of Justin Trosper (vocals, guitar, songwriting), Vern Rumsey (bass), and Brandt Sandeno (drums), all of whom had previously been in a band called Giant Henry. Brandt Sandeno quit Unwound in 1992 and was replaced by Sara Lund. This line-up would remain in place until the band’s dissolution in 2002. The group was strongly associated with the label Kill Rock Stars throughout the 1990s. Unwound was sharply dissonant and angular, often resorting to unusual guitar tones, and associated with post-hardcore and noise rock. The band toured frequently, preferring “all ages” clubs. The group spawned numerous side projects.
