Formed by ex-Simpletones members in the early fall of 1979, the Cheifs came together in an office building at the corner of Hollywood Blvd. and Western Avenue in Hollywood, California – referred to as the Holly-West Building. After releasing a now highly sought-after 7” single and tracks on two compilation LPs, the band called it quits in 1982. While active, the band played alongside such punk legends as the Germs, Fear, X, Adolescents, Wasted Youth, Social Distortion, T.S.O.L., Black Flag, Dead Kennedys, and Descendents, to name a few.
Reformed and now Atlanta-based (featuring founding member Bob Glassley), the band is playing gigs and recording new music
