Signed to Pipeline Records only six months after forming in 1986, the Doughboys

, 1990's Happy Accidents
and 1992's Something's Gone Wrong), the band signed with A&M and released Crush
in 1993. The Doughboys'
original lineup consisted of bassist John Bonhead
, guitarist Johnathon Cummins
, vocalist/guitarist John Kastner
and drummer Brock Pytel
, but Peter Arsenault
later replaced Bonhead
and Paul Newman
took over for Pytel
. In 1998 the band split up, and two bands emerged as a result: Bionic and All Systems Go!
