(1976 – 1979)

Bio: From Oost-Souburg/Vlissingen. The older brother of Jaap lent him his guitar and after tuning and rehearsing in E, it was time for a band. The band plays Ramones and Sex Pistols songs plus own songs. Within time they got a following. The 7” comes out on Stoof Records which is financed by the notorious bar with the same name in Vlissingen. They chose the name for the record because at the time there was an outbreak of Polio in the Netherlands and especially in the orthodox-protestant community in the province of Zeeland. They refuse vaccinations because of their belief. The cover shows the band with needles around an open grave with Jaap shitting literally on a coffin. It’s an obvious protest and needless to say, the record becomes quite controversial. When they play Strandpop, Bram throws his keyboards in the crowd. In 1979 the band splits up due to musical differences and some members continue as Cartunes.
