In the late 1990s, Joel and Monk met in Woodshop class. They got together and played pure 100% alternative rock. Then they found Mark on an internet chat. Then played with him. Band names came and went: PEEL, Dischordia, freaker, LULL, Gonorrhea Grudge, Turnip Farm. Then, God came down and enlightened them, ""NO! NOT ANOTHER SHITTY ALTERNA BAND! YE SHALL PLAY A MIX OF ROCK, JAZZ, BLUES, FUNK, PUNK, SURF, SPY AND REGGAE AND BE UNDER ONE NAME; MAYHEM BREW...AND I SHALL JOIN THE BAND."
