Career[edit]

Rosenstock has performed with many other ska and punk rock bands, including Mustard Plug,[2] The Bruce Lee Band, and Andrew Jackson Jihad. He has also performed with his Bomb the Music Industry! band-mates Laura Stevenson and Lee Hartney.[3]

Rosenstock also founded the independent record label Quote Unquote Records, which puts out all of its records for free (in keeping with Rosenstock's long time DIY ideology.) More recently he launched Really Records which has released vinyl for The Sidekicks, Hard Girls, Archipelago, Shinobu and many of Jeff's projects.

Recently, he has begun producing for other artists such as Mikey Erg, The Smith Street Band, Laura Stevenson, and Dan Andriano. He is also a member of Antarctigo Vespucci, a collaborative project between himself and Fake Problems front man Chris Farren.
