Pictured above is the original 7" EP line-up: Mike, Dash, Rob, and Al
The Reactors lasted through several line-ups. The first Reactors before the 7" EP were Mike Rodriguez, bass; Al Zenno, guitar; Brad Uhl, drums; and Elizabeth "Dash" Frost, vocals. For the 7" EP, the lineup changed when drummer Brad left the band and was replaced by "Throbbin" Rob Vasquez. In early 1980, Al Zenno left the group. The remaining members recruited guitarist Tony Brammel, who was in the Sins and later helped form soul-rock alternative band, The BellRays. The last edition of the Reactors consisted of a three piece: Dash, Mike, and any drummer they could find.

The Reactors shared bills with many great bands of the time including; X, Fear, Plimsouls (at a prison show), Simpletones, Crowd, Alleycats, Smog Marines, and more.
Recently, their records have garnered much attention from the ranks of "Killed By Death" punk collectors. Their 7" was released in a rare pressing of 300 copies with two known cover variations. Their LP is almost as scarce.
Artifix Records has acquired all of their tapes and is in the process of sorting out their material for release. Watch for a CD some time in early 2009.
