Alan Bishop of Sun City Girls also played bass for awhile. The band was pivotal in the development of the skate punk and Skate Rock scenes.

Over the years, the lineup has included many bass players and drummers but the core of Brannon and Pendleton has remained constant. JFA was formed around March of 1981. Pendleton, then in the band The Deez and Cornelius, then in the band Jr. Chemists, knew each other from shows around Phoenix, Arizona and from skateboarding. They began playing together after a D.O.A.

concert during the band's Hardcore 81 tour. Bam-Bam later joined after meeting Pendleton at an "Industrial Dance" in Phoenix, and bestowed the moniker on the band, which is a reference to his second-cousin's, John Hinckley, Jr., attempted assassination of Ronald Reagan. The band's first show was opening for Black Flag at an Industrial Dance which was one of a series of early Phoenix punk shows. Their first song of the night was Pipetruck. Placebo Records released their debut EP "Out Of School" in late 1981. The band toured the west extensively and played many local shows.

Their first national tour was in the summer of 1983 following the release of their first album "Valley ot the Yakes". www.myspace.com/jfamusic Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
