(1993 – 1999)

Meaning bandname: No Identity

History: Starts in 1992 as NO LIFE. As NO I.D. had their first gig in July 1994 in the Kraneweg squat. In 1995 they replace Janine with Iris and get a new bassplayer called Wienand (ex-TEUTONIC TOPS) in 1997. In this same year they release a tape with practiseroom and live-recordings. This tape was a benefit for the W.V.V. (Werkgroep Vluchtelingen Vrij/Workinggroup Freedom for Refugees), a group that protests against a refugeeprison in the northern part of the Netherlands and against the detention of refugees in general. In December 1997 both 7″ ers are recorded in the Bunt’s Studio in Utrecht by Menno Bakker. 1998 has a Spanish tour with Aside from Rennes and in 1999 the band splits up.

Lyrics: Most of the lyrics are written in Dutch and English and deal with topics like war, flexwork, addiction, conspiracy-theories, science, hate, burocracy, reality TV and the beauty myth.
