History: Forms during the Dead Kennedy’s / M.D.C. concert in Amsterdam on 05.12.1982. Start as midtempo 3-chord hardcore and rehearse in the Grand Theatre squat. “Develops” in manic over-the-top chaoscore. Heavily influenced by the likes of early Boston and European hardcore. First gig in June 1983 in the famous De Buze in Steenwijk with Thermo as substitute bassplayer. In 1983 has 2 bassplayers for a short period. Never got the money to release anything officially but record several rehearsalroom recordings in the O.R.K.Z.. Joins the Rood Wit Zwart collective in 1983 as Puinhoop G.Z.U. Also uses the name Rhinoceros. Split up end of 1984 when Michael joins Bloedbad.
