After the Adolescents split up in 1981, singer Tony Cadena schlepped around a while and eventually replaced the lead singer of a band called Vicious Dogs. The Vicious Dogs changed their name to Abandoned. They gigged sporadically and eventually recorded their sole official release, the rare Killed By Faith, which is fairly entertaining speed-metal-popcore that basically sounds like a slightly thrashier version of the Adolescents.Los Angeles, Motherfucker!!! handily reissues the whole of the album and adds adds demos and a live rehearsal tape from 1986. Carrot was also a onetime drummer for Social Distortion.
