A D.I.Y. punk band from San Francisco in the tradition of the Dead Kennedys and Fugazi, All You Can Eat formed in 1989. Singer Devon Morf, guitarist Danny Buzzard, bassist Craig Billmeier (who also played in the marginally poppier Your Mother), and drummer Myron Isaacs embrace the goofy, fun side of punk more than the overtly serious, political dimension (think the Dickies, Fear, and Doggy Style, not ultra-serious, straight-edge bands), but remained stubbornly committed to their local scene even as similarly lighthearted California punk bands like Green Day and the Offspring signed to major labels and started selling in the tens of thousands. All You Can Eat disbanded in 1998 when Billmeier returned to college. Morf, who has a bachelor's degree in journalism, went on to write for Bay Area music magazines like Flipside and Maximum Rock'n'Roll.
