(Amsterdam, 1977 – 1980)

Bio: Start at the end of 1977 and rehearse as the first band half a year later in Paradiso cellar next to the screenprintroom of Martin Kaye who often complains about the loud noise. They played there 8 times from which some of them are as a replacement. Their manager Fred Karreman is friends with Fer Abrahams and Bo Polak, the Paradiso programmer. His brother is the singer/bassplayer of the band. They play the “Eerste Nederlandse Punkfestival” (first Dutch punkfestival) replacing The Flyin’ Spiderz.
