Formed in early 2006, Firethorn featured frontman (and longtime Ocean Beach resident) The Inevitable Mr. Chris, alongside bassist Sean Myott and drummer Habieb Fakhoury. The group played an average of 50 shows a year, sharing the stage with such regional acts as Demasiado and The Long and Short of It, and nationals like Local H and Mike Watt.

Mr. Chris recalls when the band split. "At our last show, Habieb was incredibly late and almost didn't show up at all. The amp broke in the first thirty seconds and cut our set by twenty minutes. I spent over $800 in three weeks just flying out and keeping it alive. But clearly, I'm open to further abuse."

Mr. Chris later relocated to attend school on the east coast and formed a punky pickup band called Love Ethic, backed at various times by Jason Scattaregia, Adam Fagelson, and local female bassist Marian Lowe. The group made its local debut on December 5, 2013, at the Tin Can Ale House.
