Apocalypse Hoboken was a punk rock band from Chicago, Illinois, USA. The group initially formed in 1987 but did not begin playing in earnest until 1989. The founding members included Scott Hoffman (aka Scott Action, guitar), Andy Peterson (drums), Rich Muffin (bass), and Ted Locascio (later known as Ted Lukas, vocals). After some membership changes, founding members Andy and Scott were joined by Kurdt Dinse (aka Kurdt Buddah, bass), Billy Thompson (guitar), and Todd Paglialong (aka Todd Pot, vocals) and began a prolific run (Thompson would be replaced by Sean Seeling in 1996). The band would release several albums and EPs and appear on a number of compilations throughout the 1990s. By the end of the decade, though, the band fractured, with job and family commitments limiting some members' involvement. Guitarist John San Juan and bassist Erik Bocek joined the band for live gigs, but no recordings were released and the band split in 2001. Only Andy Peterson remained with the band throughout their entire life span. However, in the years since the break-up, the line-up of Andy/Scott/Sean/Kurdt/Todd have played a number of reunion shows in and around Chicago.
