Formed in 1981 by svengali Myk Erxn , Alpo were a pre-teen punk rock band consisting of Drew (Popeye) Holderman on guitar, David Shwank on drums, Chris Stuart on bass, and Joel Loya on vocals. Playing mainly Germs covers, thier only show was a Harvey West Club House birthday party opening for the Young Alcoholics  and Crusifix.

Alpo was disbanded by Joel Loya after being razzed for dry-humping Dawn Schneider in the back yard during a party at Johnny Peters house.
