Descendents are Karl Alvarez (bass), Milo Aukerman (vocals), Bill Stevenson (drums), and Stephen Egerton (guitar). The pop punk trailblazers formed in 1978 against the fertile musical backdrop of Los Angeles' South Bay scene (see: Black Flag, Minutemen, SST Records, etc.) The caffeine-addled crew released their first 7" single «Ride The Wild» as a trio in 1979. Not long after, the boys recruited one Milo Aukerman (microbiology Ph.D. in waiting and poster boy for adolescent ne'er-do-well alienation) for vocal duties.
Milo's fervent mic delivery coupled with his knack for hitting the lyrical nail on its heartrending head plunged him headfirst into the band's fold, and together they released the «FAT» EP in 1981.
They have released seven studio albums, Milo Goes to College (1982), I Don't Want to Grow Up (1985), Enjoy! (1986), All (1987), Everything Sucks (1996), Cool to Be You (2004), and Hypercaffium Spazzinate (2016).
