The Faction
The Faction
The Faction is a hardcore punk rock band from San Jose, California. Pioneers of the skate punk era during the early 1980s, their longest stint being from Halloween 1982 until Halloween 1985, The Faction were one of the first bands whose music and lifestyle tastes centered on punk rock and skateboarding. An early demo tape had these words inscribed on the label, "Music By Skaters For Skaters." All original band members and their subsequent replacements are accomplished skateboarders, most notably bass and guitarplayer and legendary professional skateboarder Steve Caballero. In the early years of the band Caballero was instrumental in attracting a large following of skateboarders to the band. Apart from a few one-off shows, the band was dormant fro m1984 until reuniting in 2014. The band also includes Gavin O'Brien (Vocals), Adam Bomb Segal (Guitar), Ray Stevens II (Bass) and Keith Rendon (Drums).
