Poison Green is band from Montebello CA, started in March 2012. Phil(vocals) decided to start join a band with Johhny(guitar), Brumen(trumpet), Josh(guitar), and David(drummer) under the name of Counter Culture. Desperately looking for a place to practice, we decided to add a second drummer (Aharron) who had been wanting to start a band with Phil and also gave his home as our practice spot in East
LA. Tye(bassist) joined in to complete the band. Problems arose while deciding who should drum while creating Crucified by your parents. Eventually, Tye, Phil, and Aharron split to create their own band on their own. Tye brought in a new guitarist Chris(guitar) to help play our one hit wonder song(Crucified) at a local Montebello gig. He wasn't in our band yet, we just wanted to see if he'd be down to play the gig. We never played the song due to cops shutting down the gig, but we decided to ask Chris if he'd stay with the band. Chris agreed and this was the beginning of Poison Green. Music was created fast, but we were lacking shows. Phil was inspired by pure 80's/90's hardcore punk sound, Tye and Chris were into Metal/Punk/Thrash, and Aharron was open minded to anything he'd hear. Starting off slow, we quickly adapt to eachother and our own punk sound was quickly made. Some songs being fast, some being having a goofy beat, anything that satisfied our ear buds, we played. Soon the time came to create our Demo recorded off an iphone. The original six songs we created were on it, "Americas got me in a straight jacket" "Crucified by your parents" "Poison Green" "It won't be me" "Judge me not" "Pre-Cum Party". Chris shreaded the guitar, Tye gave his funky beats, Aharron beat the drums like a champ, and Phil yelled his POISON GREEN!
