1) The Layabouts sprang from the heart of Detroit's radical/bohemian community of the early '80's as a more or less direct response to to the musical/political eruption of the British ska-punk scene of the late 70's. Of the four founding members - all whom are in the band today - two were artists and two were veterans of radical political politics like the Fifth Estate Newspaper (the US's longest surviving '60's radical paper) and the Eat the Rich Gang (credo: Workers of the world Relax!); thus the name 'Layabouts' seemed the only appropriate choice.
