(Zaandam, 1980 – 1983)

Bio: Was called Hilversum 5 and Agitators. In the beginning they play like The Ex but when the guitarplayer leaves the band to live elsewhere, they change the style to Oi. The first concert is in Parkhof, Alkmaar. During the split LP there is no bassplayer and Michiel Wiering plays bass on all songs. They do alot of concerts with N.V. Le Anderen from Wormer. The concert in Simplon in 1982 was filmed by Peter Vonk. A small piece is in the documentary by Barbara den Uyl about squatter Hans Kok who played in the other band that night and died later in a police prison. When singer Fred quits, the band stops.

Description: Started out as experimental and heavily influenced by The Ex. Later Oi.
