Screw 32 is a Berkeley/East Bay-area US punk rock band.

History[edit]

One of the first East Coast-influenced hardcore-style bands to come out of the East Bay in the early 90's, Screw 32 was founded by Andrew Champion and Grant McIntire, school friends who'd been in bands together before. Doug Sangalang was playing at the time with Jesse Michaels (of Operation Ivy) current project, Big Rig, and joined Screw 32 a few weeks later. The band blended D.C. hardcore and L.A. punk. Jimi Cheetah and Josh Kilbourn were the original rhythm section.

Early on Screw 32 collaborated closely with AFI, opening for each other and helping each other get gigs. Their first tour was with Los Angeles band Youth Brigade. Screw 32 also played with the Bouncing Souls.

The last show for Screw 32 was at Boarderline Warehouse near Twain Harte, California in April 1997 run by a friend of theirs named Mark Kirkman (who ran the now famous BullPen skateboard shop in Danville, California where the San Ramon and Danville straightedge scene was born and in extension the Northern California straightedge hardcore scene was also born with such bands as Unit Pride, Breakaway, Rabid Lassie, No Reason and many others) with Citizen Fish (ex-Subhumans), The Criminals, and Fury 66 from Santa Cruz, CA.

The band reformed in the Spring of 2016 with guitarist Zac Hunter "The Butcher" of The Nerve Agents Jude Ramirez on drums and bassist Dustin Tyler "dbc" Kanel joining original members Andrew Champion on vocals and Grant McIntire on guitar.
