The Pist was an American hardcore punk band that was formed in Connecticut in the winter of 1992 by Al Ouimet on vocals and bass, Bill Chamberlain on guitar, and Greg Bennick on drums. They were a popular band in the DIY punk scene of the 1990s. After a few lineup changes, the band eventually solidified as Al on vocals, Bill on guitar, Brian Marshall on drums and Rick Abbott on bass. The band toured the U.S. four times in the ensuing years and broke up in 1996.
While they were around they played shows with the likes of Aus-Rotten, Blanks 77, The Bouncing Souls, Capitalist Casualties, Los Crudos, and the Voodoo Glow Skulls.
In 2002, The Pist reformed to play two reunion shows with The Unseen when the New Haven, Connecticut club the Tune Inn closed. Members remain active in the punk scene in bands like Caustic Christ and Behind Enemy Lines (Bill) and God's Left Hand and The Deacons (Al). A reissue of their LP and a compilation of all of their non-LP releases was released on Havoc Records, and the band will marked the release of their discography by reuniting to play a series of reunion shows in summer 2007.
