All Systems Go!
The band, consisting of Daly, Kastner Arsenault and Arnold, recorded their first album, All Systems Go! in 1999. John Kastner (guitar) and Frank Daly (bass) alternate on lead vocals, and the album blended hard rock, punk, vocal harmonies and Arnold's Arnold guitar work, and elements of Doughboys and Big Drill Car are evident. Though a fairly short album, it was well received by fans of the members' previous projects.
Frank Daly left the band the following year and was replaced by Thomas D'Arcy (from The Carnations) on bass and vocals. On the resulting album, Mon Chi Chi, Kastner and newcomer D'Arcy both contribute to the songwriting and vocal leads. The album was released first in Europe on Bad Taste Records. In 2003 the band conducted a European tour in support of the album.
Thomas D'Arcy left the band shortly thereafter and was temporarily replaced by Karl Alvarez (Descendents and All). This line-up toured briefly but did not produce a studio album.
After several intervening years, in 2007 All Systems Go! released A Late Night Snack on iTunes; this was a collection of outtakes and unreleased songs from the band's time together.
