Description

SWING KIDS formed in the mid '90s out of a mix of obscure punk, hardcore, and geographyspecific social politics. The band, made up of
Justin Pearson, Jose Palafox, John Brady and Eric Allen drew inspiration from jazz and swing era ethics, creating a strand of genre-defying music.
The band was short lived, documenting their entire existence in a handful of songs/releases over a couple of years. The band did their last few
shows recruiting Jimmy Lavalle who was part of notable acts such as THE LOCUST, THE CRIMSON CURSE, THE BLACK HEART PROCESSION,
GOGOGO AIRHEART, and ALBUM LEAF, to play second guitar. Then the unexpected happened; guitarist and founding member of SWING KIDS
and UNBROKEN, Eric Allen, took his own life. Over a decade later, and Eric still lives on in his music.
The final chapter of the band was written, as the remaining members had the opportunity to play two benefit shows in Southern California raising
thousands of dollars for charity. The shows, or "funerals" as the band members looked at it, displayed that the band?s spirit will live on, and showcased the evolution of the remaining members? musicianship. Jose Palafox went on to play in notable acts such as BREAD AND CIRCUITS, Yaphet Kotto, and BAADER BRAINS. Bassist John Brady has since played in SWEEP THE LEG Johnny and Agonista. Vocalist Justin Pearson is known for contributing to a multitude of bands and projects over the years including DEAD CROSS, THE LOCUST, RETOX, PLANET B, HEAD WOUND CITY, and DEAF CLUB.
