(1979 – 1982) (2006 – now)

Meaning Bandname: Date of death of Sid Vicious

Bio: From Hoogkerk. Were called Joint Venture with different members. When they broke up, Theo and Hondema found Ron the drummer. And during the final gig of Albert’s band Inspiration Breakdown in Pentastoma in Roden they found Albert. Their first concert in Simplon is done with a replacement drummer (a roadie for Vopos) because Ron refused. He is replaced by Lex. Two Two 79 has always been a funband with the emphasis on playing music. BBecause of school and other things the band was never more than a hobby and there was never an ambition of more. Speedy, the 2nd singer for Boegies in 1982 is their manager/roadie and they practice in the ORKZ. Split up in early 1982 but did one more show in Pentastoma in Roden in May 1982 and got the 12” released after. Reforms in 2006 and try alot of drummers. They’re strictly D.I.Y. and release everything themselves.
