Almost 17 years ago (Sept.-Oct. 1989) in Pomona Valley, CA was the birth of TOTAL CHAOS . Created out of the desperate need to save a dying genre of punk rock- during a time that the market was saturated with a more commercial "new style". Along the side of a dedicated few other bands who believed in the dying genre and all that it represented- to them it was not only music- but a forum- to convey important political and social views. One of those allies was Jay Lee from "Resist and Exist" who with "Total Chaos" started organizations such as-UVP(United Valley Punks), OCP(Orange County Peace Punks) and AGC (Alternative Gathering Collective)- holding social events like- "Food Not Bombs"- giving support to the "Big Mountain Indian Reservation" and helping to open the "Los Angeles Anarchist Center". The idea of social responsibility to both bands was a significant thing- fromorganizing peace punk picnics- to protesting against the Gulf War- their music had meaning and stood for something.
