F.F.A. got started in the winter of ’95. Inspired by the likes of Negative FX, Poison Idea, Gang Green and Negative Approach, Fit For Abuse released their debut 7” “Mindless Violence” on crust records in ’97. After releasing the EP, singer Matt Kelly joined the Dropkick Murphys as their drummer and decided to leave FFA because of his nonstop touring schedule. The band decided to continue on without him. After trying out a few singers they replaced Matt Kelly with Psycho Ray.
