Roger Miret and the Disasters are a street punk group formed by Agnostic Front frontman Roger Miret. The band started when Miret was writing songs that weren't quite for Lady Luck (a band fronted by his wife Denise) or Agnostic Front, so he starting recording them on his own on a Boss recorder. Johnny Rioux had previously mentioned he'd like to work with him, so Rioux helped Miret on what at that point was considered a solo project. Then Miret met Rhys Kill, who liked the material and joined on the project. The band then recorded a demo tape, with Miret and Kill on guitar, Rioux on bass and Matt Kelly from the Dropkick Murphys on drums. That six-song demo found its way to Lars Frederiksen, who passed it off to his Rancid bandmate Tim Armstrong who asked Miret to put his project out on Hellcat Records. As Kelly couldn't continue with Miret due to his commitments with Dropkick Murphys, Miret asked Johnny Kray of The Krays and New York Rel-X to join on drums. After a couple rehearsals, they decided to make it a band. .
