State of Confusion

Boise, ID

1980s original hardcore punk band. (second HC band in Boise after Septic Death.) Original line up was Pat Schmaljohn AKA Pat "Brown" singer, writer, Erik Hansen drums, Wayne "Rhino" Flower bass, Scott D. Schmaljohn guitar. Troy Wright played at the tail end of State of Confusion (SOC) for a few shows. R.I.P Pat Schmaljohn passed away in 1999. Troy Wright will again be joining SOC but this time as the singer in place of Pat Brown. Troy has been the BIGGEST SOC fan so it is great honor that we have him working Pat's place. Troy will make him proud no doubt. 3 members of SOC:Pat Brown, Wayne Rhino Flower and Scott D. Schmaljohn went on to team up wit Dug Martsch to form Treepeople in 1988. Looking forward to "Bringing it!"
