Biography

There is more than one artist with this name:


1) Sticks and Stones is a punk rock band from New Brunswick, New Jersey formed in 1987. They currently consist of Pete Ventantonio on guitar/vocals, Chris Calello on drums, Osamu Kawahara on bass/vocals, and Johnny X on guitar and vocals. They were originally active in the fertile New Jersey punk scene of the late 80’s and early 90’s, but have recently reunited.

The band went against punk convention, rejecting trends often at the expense of commercial success. They are considered by some to have been ahead of their time, but disbanded in 1995 before their particular brand of punk would become more popular. They were closely associated with fellow New Brunswick band The Bouncing Souls, including releasing albums on The Bouncing Souls’ own label, Chunksaah Records.

Upon disbanding in 1995, the members of the band went on to several successful projects. Guitarist and vocalist Pete Ventantonio, under the pseudonym of Jack Terricloth, became the lead singer and personality for punk cabaret band The World/Inferno Friendship Society while Johnny X started the band Johnny X and the Conspiracy as well as the comic book series 66 Thousand Miles Per Hour.

The band has recently had a resurgence. In 2003 they released the double-album The Strife and Times, a collection of 41 remastered songs drawn from all their previous efforts, to commemorate the release of their first full-length album.
