(August 2010) Attitude Adjustment Origin Walnut Creek, California Genres Crossover thrash Thrash metal Hardcore punk Years active 1985–1992 2007 Associated acts Agnostic Front Death D.R.I. Hirax Machine Head Testament Vio-Lence Website MySpace page Attitude Adjustment was a crossover thrash band formed in the early 1980s in the San Francisco Bay Area. The band was formed by Chris Kontos, Eric Smith and Rick Strahl in early 1985, briefly with Nick Koljian on vocals. The line up was changed by the addition of Kevin Reed on vocals. This lineup played a number of initial shows at Ruthies Inn, the New Method, the Mabuhay Gardens and other Bay Area venues. Several months later, due to personal issues, Kevin Reed was replaced by Andy Andersen and Chris Scapparo joined as a second guitarist. They shortly went into the studio to record the Dead Serious Demo in 1985. The demo was recorded at Peter Miller Studios and engineered by Eric Kauschen. Attitude Adjustment played frequent gigs throughout the Bay Area and California alongside bands like Forbidden (Known as Forbidden Evil at that time), Vio-Lence, Sacrilege, Possessed, Hirax, Death Angel, R.K.L., Dr. Know, Suicidal Tendencies, Corrosion of Conformity, D.R.I., Discharge, UK Subs, Neurosis, The Exploited and Operation Ivy, among others in 1986 and 1987. The band finally released their debut album, American Paranoia released on Pusmort Records. This album is considered to be a "crossover" between hardcore and thrash metal. At the end of 1987 Andy Andersen, Chris Scaparro and Rick Strahl joined up with former Condemned to Death guitarist Keith Chatham to form Condemned Attitude which later turned into Attitude. Attitude released an LP and an EP, taking a more thrash metal direction, with Andy Andersen returning to his initial style of singing. Different drummers and bassists (Rick Strahl took the guitar job alongside Chris Scaparro) were part of the lineup at this time and Eric Brecht eventually took the drum spot. Chris Kontos, Eric Smith and Kevin Reed continued on with Attitude Adjustment and in 1988, this new lineup released the EP No More Mr. Nice Guy, again on Pusmort Records, which is very different from American Paranoia. By 1990 former members Andy Anderson, Chris Scaparro, and Rick Strahl formed a new band with a more hard rock direction. The band was called Two Bit Thief and they kept it alive until 1995. Kontos and Reed returned to the name Attitude Adjustment in 1991, but with another new line up to record their last studio album, Out Of Hand, again mixing hardcore with thrash metal. In 1993, the American Paranoia LP and the No More Mr. Nice Guy EP were re-issued on CD. The LP version includes the Dead Serious demo. Chris Kontos joined Robb Flynn (who left Vio-Lence) in 1993 to form the post thrash band Machine Head. As of July 2007 the band has, at least temporarily, reformed.[citation needed] Contents 1 Current line-up 2 Former members 3 Bands influenced by Attitude Adjustment 4 Discography 5 Compilation 6 External links Current line-up Chris Kontos (drums) Kevin Reed (vocals) Eric McIntire (guitar) Yapple Rueles (guitar) Greg Orr (bass) Former members Nick Koljian (vocals - Scoopy's Clownhouse Revenge) Kevin Reed (vocals - Deathtoll, Deface, Numbskull) Andy Andersen (vocals - Condemned Attitude, Attitude, Two Bit Thief) Eric "Bobo" Smith (guitar) Ray Vegas (bass - Vio-Lence, Social Unrest) Chris Kontos (drums - Machine Head, Death Angel, Verbal Abuse) Keith Medeiros (bass) Keith Chatham (guitar) Paul Birnbaum (drums) Eric Brecht (drums - Hirax, Death, D.R.I.)
