Wives was a hardcore punk/noise rock trio from Los Angeles, California, U.S. consisting of guitarist Randy Randall, bassist/vocalist Dean Spunt, and drummer Jeremy Villalobos. In the three years the band were together, they released a self-titled 7" on Post Present Medium, as well as a split 7" with K.I.T on Post Present Medium. In September 2004 the band released their first full-length LP, Erect the Youth Problem, on Cold Sweat Records.
