(2000 – 2003)

Meaning bandname: translates as The Killers Of Superficiality. Superficiality is the enemy of political activism and social improvement

History: Los Asesinos De La Superficialidad started in september 2000 with Pascal on vocals, René on bass, Ferry on guitar and Sjakie a.k.a. Richard on drums. This line-up is still intact until the end. There was no specific idea about the music, they just started making songs which sounded right to them. In may 2001 they recorded 6 songs in the Sing Sing Studio. Two songs are released on DP-sampler #4, the other four songs are released on a 7″ which has been put out by Graanrepubliek from Groningen as the Manifesto EP. In May 2002 they returned to Blaisdell to record for a new release.
