Corrupted Ideals is a punk rock band from Long Beach, California formed in 1988. The band's early line-up, which appeared on their first full-length LP, Join the Resistance, included Paul Kelly and Mike Nigro, on vocals and guitar, respectively. They wrote most of the material together, with Mike writing most of the music, and Paul contributing most of the lyrics. The band's second release, Anti-Generation, came with a lineup change, including Pete "Action Man" Archer on bass, and Anthony Guarino on drums. Nicky Garratt also played guitar on portions of Anti-Generation, including the CI cover of the UK Subs, "Telephone Numbers." Pete and Anthony played in another band together in the mid-1980s, called Violent Outrage (a band that played with Corrupted Ideals regularly in the mid-late 1980s. This line up changed slightly a week before touring the Western US, with Pete moving to bass in the Stitches (who were opening for Corrupted Ideals on tour), and Anthony moving to bass, as the band was able to recruit celebrated punk rock drummer Sean Antillon to play drums. Sean is known best for playing drums for the Weirdos, but also has (or is currently) played for the Gears, the Stains, the Skulls, and many other early LA bands who reformed. Currently, Corrupted Ideals lineup includes Steve Swailes of the Hitchhikers playing guitar, Paul Kelly on vocals, Anthony Guarino playing bass, and Sean Antillon on drums.[1][2][3][4][5][6]

After Corrupted Ideals stopped playing, in 1995, Paul Kelly and Sean Antillon went on to form the Neurotones, along with Steve Swailes. The Neurotones were more stripped down rock, influenced by very early rock and roll, and would be labeled in the genre Rockabilly/Psychobilly.
