Biography

Braintree, Boston MA, United States (1980 – 1982, 1985 – 1990, 1996 – present)

Gang Green (also spelled GangGreen) is a hardcore punk/crossover thrash band originally from Braintree, Massachusetts. The first incarnation of the band consisted of 15 year olds Chris Doherty, Mike Dean, and Bill Manley and contributed seven tracks to the This Is Boston, Not L.A. compilation in 1982. That same year the group disbanded and lead singer Chris Doherty joined the band Jerry’s Kids for their album Is This My World?

Current line-up:

Chris Doherty – Vocals, Guitar (July 1980 – present)
Mike Earls – guitar (1996 – 1998; 2007 – present)
Walter Gustafson – drums (Feb 1984 – Sep 1985, Feb – Aug 1991, 1996 – 1998; 2005-present)
Matt Sandonato – Bass (1996 – present)

Past lineups

In 1985 Doherty reemerged with an all new Gang Green lineup consisting of himself (vocals, guitar), Chuck Stilphen (guitar, vocals), Glen Stilphen (bass, vocals) and Walter Gustafson (drums). This second lineup is the most famous nationally as it was both the first to tour and the one that recorded the classic songs “Alcohol” and “Skate to Hell”. This edition of Gang Green released the Another Wasted Night LP on Taang! Records in 1986. It is regarded as one of the definitive hardcore records of its time.

By 1987, when they were signed by Roadrunner Records the band’s musical style had become to lean more toward heavy metal and the personnel of the band, save Doherty, had changed completely. This incarnation of Gang Green consisted of Doherty, Fritz Erickson (guitar), Joe Gittleman (bass) and former Jerry’s Kids drummer Brian Betzger.
