Fagatron started in Lincoln, Ne in 1996, inspired by the then current queercore movement on the west coast. it consisted of Abe Miner on vocals and bass, and Jeromy Ogg on drums and vocals. Both were seventeen and still in high school when the band was formed. Fagatron played around the midwest for a few years, playing in Minneapolis, Lincoln, and MIssouri before releasing a seven inch in 1998. They then broke up(for the first time).
