Steve Pilace grew up in Lake Elsinore, California and didn’t graduate high school. Around ‘85 he met Corky Pigeon. Corky was a previous child star in the television series Silver Spoons. They started a mod band in the late 80’s called Then Again. This band lasted for couple years but then died out due to the other band member wanting to pursue other styles of music.

In 1990, Steve and Corky started The Gain (this name for the band was an obvious offshoot of the Then Again band name). It was them two and a bassist named Brian Mitchell. They made a couple of demo tapes and even a 7” released on BRRAPP Records.

For whatever reason Brian left the band. This is when Joey Travers entered the picture. Then The Gain started throwing in a little bit of punk rock in their mix. Local ‘zines started giving this band some serious props. Then, in about 1994-1995, the band decided they had to start touring. They toured relentlessly for about 2 years releasing records, splits, appearing on comps, or interviews for a zine. Yet, The Gain recently called it quits.
