Green on Red began as The Serfers, a Tucson garage trio formed in 1979 by guitarist–singer Dan Stuart, bassist–singer Jack Waterson, and drummer Van Christian. In 1980, keyboardist Chris Cacavas established their four-piece lineup. They relocated in 1981 to Los Angeles, where Christian jumped ship to Naked Prey. Drummer Alex MacNicol joined the newly renamed Green on Red, which recorded its first two EPs.
