Bio: Originally an initiative from Moniek Koelewijn (guitar), Koos Nuijens (keyboards) and Andre van der Zande (bass), intending to make more experimental music after the first punk wave. Andre left soon after an ideological disagreement, Koos left after deciding he wasn’t a musician. In the meantime Jan de Weerd became the singer, Joost Kok replaced Andre, Anthony Blokdijk from Art In Revolution decided to become a drummer. In 1982 Hans van Bentem joined the band on synthesizer and a Dutch tour is done with Rubella Ballet and Poison Girls. Anthony and Joost exchange instruments during concerts for 2 songs.
