Biography

San Francisco, United States (1988 – 1994)

In the later half of the ’80s and early ’90s there were a lot of good bands coming out of the San Francisco East Bay area. One of the main things that facilitated the growth of the East Bay Scene was 924 Gilman Street, an all ages, punk run venue that became a hub of activity for the area after their first show New Years Eve of 1986.

Monsula formed in 1988. They played what would have been called at the time “” which was really a mix of poppy melodic west coat and early DC bands. Their songs could be really pop, but always were rough enough around the edges to suck me in. Lookout Records put out a lot their material, they played Gilman and toured a lot, and seemed pretty hot nationally around the time their second album “Sanitized” was out in 1992. But the band had a falling out with their guitar player and had a couple friends stand in, then eventually broke up by 1994.

Band members: Paul Lee on vocals, Chuck Goshert on guitar, Bill Schnieder on bass and Jeff Stofanon drums

(Additional band members for some tours and shows included Mike Goshert of Fiftten on drums, Skot Pelkey of Uranium 9-Volt on drums, Paul Curran of Crimpshrine on bass, Mike Talbot and Todd Sweatfield on bass, Lance Hahn of J Church and Cringer on guitar, and Jason White of Pinhead Gunpowder and Chino Horde on guitar).
