BRUNT OF IT started in 1995 in San Francisco, CA out of the ashes of Bay's HOODLUM EMPIRE. Many lyrics coming from Hoodlum's lead singer and Braintrust , Rob Rock, who has been missing since 1995. BRUNT OF IT played gigs in the Bay Area for about a year until Boofish moved back to the East Coast. The band was reformed with childhood friends and band mates from the Rhode Island hardcore scene (RIX), where he was very active in his youth. The band blends a mix of Old School Hardcore Punk Rock with distorted, dissonant Ska (not a clean guitar note in their set list). Infectious choruses and a driving beat are the backbone of BRUNT OF IT's no bullshit sound.

In their 15 years of existence they have shared the stage with numerous national/regional acts. They recorded a nine-track album in 1997 called "Safety Margin" named by accident thanks to the printers.

After a hiatus of 2 years they recorded a 14-track album in 2005 called "Certain Uncertainty". This album, coupled together with the power of the digital age has taken BRUNT OF IT has taken off. They played more shows than ever in the Northeast in 2006 + 2007 that inspired them to take it to the West Coast for a fall tour.

A new Saga of the BRUNT OF IT and a new chapter is born. With the addition of a 3 piece horn section the band makes a powerhouse sound more wild than ever. Stationed in Allston Rock City BRUNT OF IT plays the local house scene to the bigger ska shows that the Boston scene has to offer. Also a new EP is in the works.
