.S,Smegma Started collectively by Ju Suk Reet Meate, Cheese It Ritz, Chucko Fats, Dennis Duck, Amazon Bambi and Cheesebro. doing some of the recording and most of the video when he could be there (he was in the armed services).

Ju Suk Reet Meate, Chucko Fats, Dr.Id, Amazon Bambi and Cheese It Ritz moved to Corvallis Oregon in fall of 1975 and then on to Portland Oregon, Where all but Chucko remained.
