Gimp was a San Diego speed-punk band from 1995–’98. The band was made up of five high school students (later to become four). The project served as the perfect form of expression, release, and escape from high school life for both the band members and their good friends/fans who showed up at every show. The band ended up having the privilege of opening for the likes of Pulley, Lagwagon, No Use For a Name, Millencolin, Diesel Boy, and Strung Out during their super charged punk rock stint. Ironically, on their last day of school in 1998, the band played their farewell show as the boys parted ways for different colleges.
