I was looking at upcoming shows the other day and saw The Vandals. I must be totally out of the loop because I didn't know they were still playing, but it reminded me of a story. I was working at a convenience store in the middle of nowhere suburban Austin, Texas @1992 and this guy comes in. He said something about the (punk) shirt I was wearing and said he used to be in a band in L.A., but commented that I probably had never heard of them. I asked which one and he replied that he used to sing for The Vandals. I responded with a holy shit, are you Stevo? He said he went by Stephen now, that he had been saved, and that he was in town for some sort of Christian event that his band was playing at. We chatted a little about Circle One and he seemed like a real nice fella. So my question is, does anyone know what band he was in at that time or has anyone ever heard 'em? Regardless, here's Stevo at his raging best and you can still get Peace Thru Vandalism/When In Rome from Time Bomb Records.
