Where would San Diego punk be without John Reis? After playing guitar in post-hardcore outfit Pitchfork, he’d go on to help form both Drive Like Jehu and Rocket From The Crypyt (and later Hot Snakes). Performing under the moniker “Speedo” in Rocket From The Crypyt, he and his punk cohorts would gain traction by releasing singles in rapid succession, putting out five within 1992 alone – one of which being their Singles Club 7-nch lead by “Normal Carpet Ride.” The band kept it up with lineup and label changes all the way through 2005 before calling it quits. The band reunited in 2011 for the Nickelodeon children’s show Yo Gabba Gabba.
