Romero's Jeffrey Mundt spent most of the 90's behind the drum kit for a variety of bands including punk legends, NAKED AGGRESSION & THUG. A long-time guitar player & songwriter, he often dabbled with fronting a band, but never persued it seriously. Enter: a move to northern WI, a random Craigslist ad from bass player Josh Stanchik, a casual 8 month writing and recording session (with Mundt handling vocals, guitar & drums!) & Romero was born! Intent on creating a demo to locate & convince a drummer to work with them, Mundt & Stanchik were about a month from completion when... a drummer found them! Rumors of the project peaked the interest of PONEY drummer & vocalist Ben Brooks and he gleefully volunteered before even hearing a single note. Good thing he eventually liked what he heard!
