Gimp was a three piece punk band from East Brunswick, New Jersey.
They were fronted by Tomas Kalnoky, who later went on to write, sing and play guitar for famed third-wave ska bands Catch 22, Streetlight Manifesto, and acoustic ensemble Bandits of the Acoustic Revolution. Gimp released one cassette in 1995, entitled Smiles for Macavity, likely named after the cat, a subject of a poem. At the time, Tomas was 15.
The band featured drummer Chris Greer and bassist Jason Scharenguivel, both of which went on to play with Kalnoky in Catch 22, though Scharenguivel left after the recording of Rules of the Game. Kalnoky's brother Achilles also played violin on the track "Supernothing".
