Visitor 42 is a San Francisco punk quartet that incorporates many other genres into their sonic stew. After quickly coming together in 1996, the band wrote and recorded their debut album in a weekend. Spending the next few years polishing up their live shows, 1999's Heavy Handed Hospitality featured a more streamline style of songwriting and less chaotic performances. After some Internet success with the song "United Police States," they toured college stations and promoted the band for the next few years. In the summer of 2002, Butterflower Records released their third album, Monkeys Throw Shit.
