SEWAGE was formed in NYC's Lower East Side in Tompkins Square Park during a punk rock revival in 1991. The band was called Humyn Sewage from 91-93 in which the band was mainly squatter street punks hanging in the slums of the L.E.S. being involved in the 1991 Mayday Riot in Tompkins Square Park. Spike landed a full page photo in the NY Newsday paper for fighting in the riots. Sewage performed at parties and at squats with punk legends "The CASUALTIES" and "Public Nuisance"at "THE PUNK ROCK BEER OLYMPICS" in Williamsburgh,Brooklyn ,with 2000 Dirty Squatters and Banji at ABCnoRIO. The POT PARADE in 1992 SEWAGE performed the bill with other performers such as "BIGGIE SMALLS" before he was a mega media star, "CYPRESS HILLS" and "ONYX". Chad left the band so "SPIKE POLITE" took over the frontman position to perform the "GG ALLIN" concert at "The Gas Station" ;whereupon, GG died of a heroin overdose across the street from the very club which he performed at earlier that day. The Rock n Roll Hall of Fame did a documentary on punk rock which featured Spike in front of CBGB's with a gang of angry punk rockers explaining that punk rock music started in NYC , SEWAGE performing 3 of their songs and filmed SPIKE giving a tour of the L.E.S which is still viewable in the museum in Cleveland Ohio. 96 was a great year for SEWAGE when Ena ,of Kostabi World Art Gallery put out a 7 inch of SEWAGE's "Love Song". "JOEY RAMONE" had SEWAGE perform at "The CONTINENTAL" for his annual Christmass Parties and his Birthday Bashes. Spike had an agent sending him and the band out on auditions of which SEWAGE did a skit as themselves on "The DAVID LETTERMAN SHOW"on CBS in 98 as well as "DEBRA HARRY's" clothing line fashion shoot. "DEE DEE RAMONE" showed ffriendship to the band having SEWAGE perform Ramones reunion shows at CBGB's and put SEWAGE in his fanzine "SHOOTING DOPE". SEWAGE was picked for the tv commercial of the "SUMMER of SAM" a "SPIKE LEE Production" movie in 1998. In 1999 Spike was placed into the "JESSIE CAMP & the 8th St Kidz" band for an MTV video of the bands "Hollywood Records" song "SEE YOU AROUND" which aired every hour on the hour for three months on MTV.
