(1976 – 1977)
Bio: When Fragile stops, Marius form in 1976 in Stadskanaal through an advertisement Crisis. Music is inspired by rhytm & blues from the pubrockscene of Dr. Feelgood and Kursaal Flyers. Later influences are from the CBGB scene from New York City like The Ramones and The New York Dolls.
The band practise in the shed of the farm of the Schaap parents in Eelderwolde. The very first concert of Crisis is in January 1977 during a very tumultous NSVH party in a clubhouse in the Tuinstraat in Groningen. Next is on a schoolparty in Frascati, a discodancing in Stadskanaal. Highlight is the gig with The Police in de Kienstdobbe in Tweede Exloërmond. After this the band stops because of musical differences. The members join other bands and the brothers Schaap later start a P.A. rental called Frontline.
