(1989 – 1993)

Meaning bandname: Chronic to the (non structured) core, nervegrinding from start to end.

Bio: First musical tries are at our house early 1989 when Rob, Margriet and Oene use guitar, bass and flushing toilets or knitting needles for drumsamples to create Dutch spoken absurdities. For real, it starts when Johnny bought a drumkit and the rest start to try and learn how to (actually) play. After some time Margriet leaves and Jan Heddema (later, much later, Dandruff!! founder) join on vocals, not for long though. As a trio, the demo 91 is recorded at De Nije in Hoogezand and the first gigs are done with Rat Patrol, after which the drummer Henry joins in 1991. After gigging and saving for a year, an album is recorded in september 1992. It is recorded at De Boterdiep and produced by Thee J. Johanz. “Crack the blinds” is released in december 1992 on Highly Obscure Records. This line-up lasts til the split-up in early 1993.

Lyrics: Mostly personal experiences with life, death, society and everything else that has a (negative…) influence on a human being. Often they are nihilistic.

Description: An attempt to “zap” through hardcore, punk, metal; no rules only freedom to do as you please. All autodidactic.
