The Neighbors was an early 1990s punk band based in Mira Mesa and fronted by SDSU psychology major Kenny Leek, who also tutored at Morse High School. A demo cassette tape was circulated in 1994, recorded at Ninth Ring Studios for Delux Records. "The punk scene was really good at the time this came out," recalls Frank Andrews. "We would practice three to four days a week in a room in Kenny's house. Good times going to every punk show in town. We got to open for GBH, MDC, Green Day Kerplunk era, [and] the Circle Jerks."
Despite racking up a ten year history with steady gigging at Soma, Tijuana, and elsewhere, and being featured in zines like Maximum RocknRoll, the band split after only a handful of well-regarded releases.
Kenny Leek later ran a record distributorship.
