Fabulous Disaster formed in San Francisco in 1998 and released their debut album, Pretty Killers, in 1998 on Evil Eye Records. In 2000, they signed to Fat Wreck Chords', Pink and Black imprint. Their second album, Put Out or Get Out, met with some success, and extensive touring followed. They released, Panty Raid!, in 2003 and toured with bands such as NOFX, The Mad Caddies, The Briefs, The Real McKenzies, The Dickies and others. While on the Fat Wreck Tour of 2001, they won the SF Weekly Best Punk Band award. They released the EP, I'm a Mess, in 2004, featuring a new lineup. More extensive touring followed. They released a few split EP's with Euro bands like OC Toons and Zinc. The band's fourth full-length album, Love At First Fight, was released in May 2007.
