While he was rooming with the band he was conscripted to play drums for them at a battle of the bands which was being held at a local fraternity. With Lindsay on drums the band performed a set of Oblivians covers, earning third place overall in the competition. After separating for a number of years the group reformed under the name the Final Solutions and began touring and releasing albums. "Well, back when I was doing the Reatards, I met Zac and we hit it off and became good friends. I was having proablems at home and he gave me a place to live.
While living with him and Justice (FS guitarist)(keep in mind I was 16 or 17), I got to hang out and drink and pretend to be grown up. But besides that, they had a bad hardcore band called the Jack Monkeys and I played drums for a battle of the bands at a frat party with them. We did all Oblivians songs and came in in 3rd place. They all moved away and a couple of years ago all moved back and we started the Final Solutions." - Jay Reatard.
