THE REACTORS
The Reactors first formed in 1978. They played their own brand of fast, raw, and desperate Punk Rock in the unlikely urban city of San Bernardino, CA. The Reactors existed from 1978 until 1982. During that time they released one 7" EP and one 12" LP on their own Nuclear Waste Records label. Believing in the D.I.Y. spirit of the times, they did everything for themselves. The members and their close friends all took different jobs in order to further their goals. Some took photos, created artwork, did layout, produced the recordings, etc. 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. 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.
"MELTDOWN"
