(1980 – 1982)

Bio: After CVC split up, the singer and bassplayer start THE CHOPS on bass and guitar. Eventually lose their 2nd guitarplayer and do some gigs with only 1 guitarplayer. Speedy goes to the BOEGIES, Chris begins concentrating on his studies, Kees goes to play in THE SLOW ONES and brothers Vergonet start a Fishrestaurant in their old rehearsalroom.
