Orange County punks the Pushers were formed in 1997 from the ashes of local favorites the Grabbers, reuniting guitarist Robo and drummer Ruben. Upon adding vocalist Spencer Bartsch, Ruben left the group, and in the wake of their debut EP Hardtimes, the Pushers lineup continued to fluctuate, with new vocalist Ricky Barnes and bassist Mega joining lone survivor Robo for 1998's Fishnets. The group's full-length debut Turning Blue followed in 1999.
