Even though the quartet of Laughing Stock are based in Austin, the band is also scattered throughout Texas as individual members also live in Denton and Waco. Although this long distance kinship barely gives the band any opportunity to play out live, the lineup of Mario Pena (bass), Roger (drums), Gerald Alvarez (vocals), and Richard Guerrero (guitar/vocals) have managed to churn out two records of their hybrid punk and "e word" (of course, being "emo") through TFC Records. Debuting with the release of their 1997 Happenstance Chronology 7", Laughing Stock eventually followed with their first full-length entitled Long Bus Ride From Capital City.
