Bio:
Back in high school, drummer Zippy Pinhead formed the Stiffs with Gerry Useless (who later formed the Subhumans) and Mike Normal; later forming "Sgt. Nick Penis and the Brassball Battalion" with D.O.A. founders Randy Rampage and Chuck Biscuits.

While still in Victoria, Duane met Zippy (via Benny Doro) while playing bass for soon to be star Chrissy Steele. Zippy went on to move to San Francisco to play with the influential band K.G.B. before returning to Vancouver to join D.O.A. Over the next 6 years, Zippy Pinhead shifted between Vancouver and California playing in some well known bands (The Dils, Art Bergman, The Mutants, Los Popularos, Black Molly's, Beat Farmers and The Fiends) and even appeared on music videos with Sheena Easton and Rick Springfield.

Duane had pursued a metal career and ended up in an influential heavy metal band Ace Koden. The band was comrpised of Kurt Phillips (Warhag, Wicthkiller) and Tommy Gunns from Reform School. Ace Koden enjoyed popularity yet imploded before being able to record a CD.


Duane left the music scene for a while to pursue a career in professional cycling after leaving recording band Centerfold when the band's funding vanished. He returned to music nearly a decade later after joining up with Wade Morissette, brother of Alanis Morissette, to play acoustic performances.
Although distracted by his day job, Plommer still pursued his passion. He achieved music success in the summer of 1999 as a guitarist for Anthill when their debut CD spun off a song called "Child of Ambition".


The blistering, guitar heavy, single was picked up by rock radio stations all across Western Canada. After some petty conflicts with the singer, Plommer left Anthill in 2001 to pursue a solo project called Little Green Planet. Tim worked hard on his solo CD (released 2006) while Duane played with Vancouver alt-punk band F.L.U. After taking Little Green Planet live Plommer met Chaos at a gig in late 2006 and both realized their respective projects were not where they needed to be. 22nd Century was formed soon after with original drummer, Glen Gaupholm rounding out the trio.
Duane continued playing part time for Punk-Metal band Stress Factor 9 which included former Annihilator drummer Ray Harttman and D.O.A. bass player/founder Randy Rampage. Stress Factor 9 is now relatively dormant and has no plans for touring since the fated 2007 Eastern US tour which left Duane Chaos, Frank Fright and Kick stranded


Glen left 22nd Century in the Spring of 2009 due to persistent wrist injuries and, after a lengthy search for a replacement, Zippy completed the trio early in the summer of 2009.
22nd Century has recently played in San Francisco, Los Angeles and Vancouver and intends to release a second CD in the spring of 2010.
