(WL-1091) Caustic Christ Band T-shirt

Caustic Christ is a hardcore punk band from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. They are on Havoc Records. In late 2000, Bill Chamberlain (best known as the guitarist for The Pist) quit his band React and moved from Connecticut to Pittsburgh to start a band with guitarist/vocalist Eric Good and bassist Corey Lyons of Aus-Rotten. While Aus-Rotten’s split resulted in vocalist Dave Trenga forming the heavy, deeply political crust band Behind Enemy Lines, Caustic Christ was more in the vein of ’80s hardcore a la Negative Approach and Black Flag and surprisingly didn’t often cover politics as a topic. Together with drummer Ron Wingrove, Good and Lyons began to practice in Corey, Eric and Bill’s basement, played local shows and a few weekend tours, and recorded a demo. During that time, Aus-Rotten broke up and Bill also formed a band with their drummer and singer, Behind Enemy Lines. Sadly, in the spring of 2001 Ron was struck by a car and sustained brain damage that rendered him unable to play drums. After a hiatus, the band replaced him with Greg Mairs of Submachine. This was supposed to be a temporary solution while the band found another less busy drummer, but 5 years later Greg is still an integral part of the band.
