Mephiskapheles was a third wave ska band based in New York. Originally called "Skatterbrains," their later name is a portmanteau of "ska" and "Mephistopheles", of Goethe's Faust. As their name suggests, their lyrics are often playfully Satanic in nature. The band began when New York hardcore band The Shaved Pigs split up, and guitarist Brendan Tween and roommate Mikal Reich decided to start a ska band. After recruiting several friends, the band was formed under the name Skatterbrains. The name changed to Mephiskapheles once the band realized that another band had already taken the name. In 1990, after a small lineup shuffle, the band recorded their demo tape titled The DEMOn. On January 3, 1991, the band made its first public appearance at a venue in Long Island. The band continued to play live and build a fan base over the next few years. It wasn't long before they struck a production & distribution deal with Moon Ska Records. In 1994, Moon Ska released the band's debut album, God Bless Satan, produced by Bill Laswell. A video for the song, "Doomsday", saw airplay on MTV. Soon after the release of the album, drummer Mikal Reich left the band. He was temporarily replaced by Dave Karcich of Spring Heeled Jack before the band brought in full-time drummer Wayne Dunton.
