With a sense of fast paced, melodic punk combined with youthful energy and aggressive harmonies, Joystick were barely out of high school when they first got together in 1994. Consisting of Zach (vocals/ guitar), John (bass), Andrew (guitar/ vocals) and Brian (drums), the band first contributed to a number of compilations before signing with Lobster Records in 1996. With their first full-length Heavy Chevy released that same year, brief a tour of the East Coast followed right after they kicked out Zach. Replacing him with their friends Josh (guitar) and Sean (vocals) in order to complete the tour, Joystick soon returned to their native California and released two additional singles, "Go Insane" and "Joystick" in 1998.
