This is a list of the members past and present, and the other bands they've been in/are in. I'm still missing some information; let me know if you're aware of any gaps!
Aaron played bass, and replaced Byron before the Big Black Bugs tour, but his first appearance on an MTX recording was the Shonen Knife cover "Flying Jelly Attack" on the compilation Every Band Has a Shonen Knife Who Loves Them. His final recording with MTX was ...And the Women Who Love Them in 1994. From Aaron himself, "Prior to MTX, I was in some goofy high-school garage bands, and also in an LA rock band called I Love You (who actually had a record on Geffen after I left the band). Post MTX, I was in Samiam and the Actionslacks, and I am currently playing with two bands: The Stacks and Love Kills Love."

Alex was the drummer from the very beginning of MTX, and continued to play with them until 1993. His last MTX recording was the song "Hello Kitty Menendez" for the compilation Soda Punx. Once again I don't know what bands he played in before MTX, and I'm not sure what bands he's played in since.
Bobby is one of the two new members of MTX. His first MTX recording is Yesterday Rules. Bobby is currently in the Knockoffs and Red Star Memorial. He is a former member of The Decibels, Go National, Lucky 13's, The Porchupines, and Joe Hardcore.
Byron was the original bass player, but quit MTX after the recording of Big Black Bugs Bleed Blue Blood in 1989. I don't much about other bands Byron has been in, although as a teen he was in the Bent Nails.
Dr. Frank is the commander of the "MTX Starship." He's the only original member of MTX, and plays guitar and sings and all that good stuff. He also writes almost all the songs (Jon Von wrote some songs when he was in the band). Frank was in Thor hahaha (you'll understand when you see it) and the Bent Nails before MTX. Since the beginning of MTX he has also played for Sweet Baby (very briefly, on drums) and was also in the the Bomb Bassets when they were active.
Erik was been a behind the scenes part of MTX for a while, but didn't start playing at shows until the summer of 1999. That only lasted for a couple years. He's played on Love is Dead and Revenge Is Sweet and So Are You, and is featured even more on Alcatraz. As far as Erik's other bands, he mostly plays in ska bands. He toured with the English group Bad Manners, and has played in Hoodlum Empire and the Mud Sharks. He's also a song writer, and his talents are featured in his main band, Radio Noise.
Gabe was the bass player briefly during the Miracle of Shame period. He appeared on Alcatraz (although he was not an official member) and Miracle of Shame. As far as other bands he's been in, the ones that I know of are Tilt and Los Blockheads. Due to space constraints, I put the bio he wrote on a separate page Read it. I'm not sure what he's been up to since leaving MTX.
Jon Von played second guitar for MTX from the beginning until he quit following the European tour in 1992. He briefly rejoined the band for a series of reunion shows, but it didn't work out. His last recording with MTX was on "Vive La France" which appeared on the compilation Can of Pork. After MTX, Jon was in the now defunct Rip Offs. The most recent band he's played with to my knowledge is Les Draguers.
Jym is the current drummer for MTX. His first recording with the band was ...And the Women Who Love Them. When Jym was in high school, he was in a band called "Forbidden Evil." He was also in at least a couple other bands, the Slambodians and Jolt. Jym was also in the Bomb Bassets.
Ted is the current second guitarist/keyboard player for MTX. His first recording was Yesterday Rules. Ted's previous bands include: The Stupid Jerks, Yellow Sloth Chicken Broth, and The Mallrats.
