(1996 – 2000)

Meaning bandname: Character from the movie “The Good, The Bad And The Ugly”. Tuco Ramirez is the ugly one…

Bio: Started somewhere in 1996 with several different people trying vocals and drums but nobody could keep it up. So Mike D. took over the mike and Sandor the drummachine came to the rescue. In this 3-piece line-up they release one D.I.Y. tape recorded in the rehearsalroom. During the French/Spanish Catweazle tour, Michael shows interest to driver and TR bassplayer/screamer Mike D. in replacing the machine. In 1998 they get their first concerts and record a promotape on a 4-track recorder in february. So far the band is a bit low-profile because members live in different cities. In June 2000 Michael quits and the band stops playing.
