In the beginning of 1995 Jay Fitzgerald and Atom L. Bomb started a punk band called Bleeding Children. Jay on guitar, Atom on vocals, Rob McConologue on drums, and Jerry Shea on bass. Around june Bleeding Children played a show at the local high school, We ripped out everybodys ears. Bleeding Children also played a show at the community center in Jerico Vermont. Then around the end of 95' Jay moved to Delaware. With Jays help we found a new guitarist, Jim Cavereto.
With a new guitarist Bleeding Children was soon writing new songs. We were still writing punkrock but it also started to have a metal sound as well. Now that our sound was changing and we had a new guitarist we decided it was time to change the name of the band. After a lot of squabbling amongst ourselves we decided upon DRUNKEN MONKEY. After a couple months of being Drunken Monkey the name changed again. We were now "MAKE IT STOP."
Make It Stop had a 3 year life, they played shows in Burlington
Vermont, and at Vermont Technical College.
They had two albums one which is self named and the other album, FEELING TIRED.
We have finished a putting together a new Make It Stop Cd called: "Projected Into The Sky." Make It Stop has been separated for many years now but Atom discovered 4 unreleased songs in the BloodKeg vault and decided it was time to release them. It contains 4 songs not previously released on cd 6 songs that were previously released. Make It Stop now has 3 Cds.
