A history of Plunger and Tom LoMacchio, taken from the myspace of Tom LoMacchio’s current band Stereograph.

1990- Tom and his family move to Crofton, MD, a neighboring town of Annapolis, where Marc was already living with his family. Both were fans of punk/post punk/new wave music of the 80s, and found a thriving local scene in Annapolis and Washington, DC. Some of the bands of the time that proved to be an influence include The Hated, Moss Icon, Lungfish, and Tsunami.


1993- Marc and his brother Derek form Plunger, along with their friend Matt Brennan. Tom and his book of lyrics join as their singer, and Plunger releases their first demo. Plunger plays their first show to a small, anxious crowd, where they start their tradition of emotional and sometimes chaotic performances.


1994- Plunger self-releases their first vinyl recording - a 5 song 7” EP. In the summer, the release receives favorable reviews in MAXIMUMROCKNROLL (“Melodic post-punk stuff here, well worth the price”) and HeartattaCk (“Plunger is a good band and this is one record worthy of many, many listens”). The record grabs the attention of Daniel McVey (Spearfinger Records) and Scott Beibin (Bloodlink Records) in New Jersey.
