SST Records Reissue of Descendents Offshoot's Debut 1980 Album!
Milo went to college, and ALL was born. Rather than quietly lay down their tools and fade into legend, Bill Stevenson, Stephen Egerton and Karl Alvarez formed an offshoot band from the Descendents called ALL. The band first saw singer Dave Smalley in some of the earlier albums such as Allroy Sez (1980) and Allroy For Prez (1988). Smalley later gave way to singer Scott Reynolds who appeared on the albums Allroy's Revenge (1989), Trailblazer (1990), Allroy Saves (1990), Old Girl New Story (1991), and Percolator (1992). Once Scott moved on, singer Chad Price stepped in for Breaking Things (1993), Pummel (1995), Mass Nerder (1998), and Problematic (2000). Although ALL is mostly made up of members of the Descendents, and most of the songs are written by the same people in both bands, few can deny that ALL has its own distinct sound while still letting the Descendents bleed through.
