Vatican Commandos Bio:

Disorder came together in Darien, Connecticut, in 1982. The original members, who had been playing together for several years under different names, were Jim Spadaccini on vocals and bass, John Farnsworth on vocals and guitar, and Chip Moody on drums. Lindsey Anderson joined on second guitar, and Chuck Weaver soon took over vocal duties. When they discovered a band from UK with the same name, they changed their name to the Vatican Commandos.

Farnsworth and Anderson were soon replaced by guitarist Richard Hall, aka Moby. In 1983, the Vatican Commandos put out the "Hit Squad for God" EP on their own Pregnant Nun label, before Moby departed and Mike Pollack stepped in. By the year's end, the band had released their second 7" as well as recorded compilation tracks for Javi Bastard's Big City Records out of New York City. 1984 saw a new 12" EP titled Point Me To The End, and the band had plans for a full-length LP, but didn't stay together long enough. They broke up in 1985.
