Kris Kwiatkowski drummed in US punkrock outfit Ten Foot Pole for a while. He joined the band in 1995, moving to Los Angeles from Philadelphia to play for TFP. With Kwiatkowski behind the drum kit, the band recorded a wicked cover of Tesla’s "Love Song" for Punk Goes Metal on Fearless Records.
Soon after they went on a raging Punk O Rama tour through the US and parts of Canada. The tour was succesfull with packed shows. Kris claimed to have had the time of his life, but still decided to quit the band to become a stockbroker (though he still rocks out in his spare time).
