this info i have found from this source:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Lookouts

The Lookouts were a punk rock band that existed from 1985 to 1990 on Iron Peak, a remote rural mountain community outside of Laytonville, California. The members were Lawrence Livermore (more commonly known as Larry Livermore), guitar and vocals, Kain Kong, bass and vocals, and Tré Cool, drums and vocals. Looking to start a punk band, Livermore had trouble finding members, citing the majority of the local musicians being hippies and "completely uninterested in the music we wanted to make". Eventually Livermore recruited a 12 year old neighbor, Frank Edwin Wright III to play drums. Although he had never played drums before, young Frank showed an instant affinity for them, possibly because, as Livermore said, "he loved making a lot of noise and getting everyone to look at him." Claiming that the members needed "punk rock names," Livermore began calling him "Tré Cool," a play on the French word "très," or "very."

The Lookouts recorded two LPs, "One Planet One People" and "Spy Rock Road," and two EPs, "Mendocino Homeland" and "IV", all released on Lookout! Records. The Lookouts went into a period of inactivity in mid-1990, with the members living and studying in different locations, and it was during that time that fellow Berkely band Green Day asked Tré to join them following the departure of their original drummer John Kiffmeyer (also known as Al Sobrante). This effectively meant the end of the Lookouts.

While Tré Cool has continued as Green Day's drummer, Larry focused on Lookout! Records and eventualy sold the label to business partner Chris Appelgren in the mid-90's when Green Day's popularity exploded and albums sales increaced. In August, 2005, Green Day removed their pre-1993 catalogue from Lookout! Records, including 1992's Kerplunk, which was Tré's debut with Green Day, due to apparently unpaid royalites.
