Negative Approach was formed in early 1981 by
John Brannon (vocals, 18 ) and Pete Zelewski (bass, 17).
The two met up in 1979 in highschool. Brannon fronted a glam-punk band called Static, Pete was learning to play bass in a band called The Sleeves.
The two became friends and shared a love for early american punk
and english Oi records.
Disillusioned by by the growing new-wave scene in Detroit, they decided to start a new band that would "totally fuck shit up".
With 18 year old Zuheir in tow (an on and off drummer from Static), they needed a guitar player.
Line-up became complete when they found Rob Mc Colloch (17) at Endless Summer Skateboard Park in Roseville, Michigan.
