* Gioteens 1.0 (1997-1998: Mike-- voice, Eli-- guitar, Tim Scott-- bass, Mark Lierly-- drums) This version played impromptu sets in Pittsburgh PA and Evansville IN on Soophie Nun Squad's first tour. In summer 1998, they recorded versions of "Trampoline Song" and "The Stand" at Blue Chair Studio in Ward, AR; these songs were released on the Defeated Records' Food Not Bombs comp CD.
* Gioteens 2.0 (1999-2001: Nate Powell-- voice, Eli-- guitar, Tim-- bass, Mike-- drums) Most shows and tours were played with this lineup. Gioteens' last show was New Years Day, 2001 in Sherwood AR. A total of 18 songs were written, but unfortunately never recorded-- neither the "Girl Don't Get Me Started" 7" nor the split LP with 2 Dean Crew ever materialized. God, those records would've been absolutely amazing.
