Original line-up: Marcel Hoitsema (vocals and guitar), Francois Besson (guitar), Bart Gevers (double bass), Rene van Iersel (drums), Roadie: Arno v.d. Wassenberg
Release of our first, self-titled album (Count Orlock Records)
Release of our second album “True Rebel” (Raucous Records) which was dedicated to our loyal roadie Arno who died after a tragic accident in 1989.
After 5 years of intensive touring and 10 years of on-and-off-gigging we decided to pick it up where we left it off in 1995 and hit the road again.
Karel Panjer joined us on double bass (Bart needed to focus on PPSR).

Rene decided to spend more time in his house in France and leave the band.
Rene was replaced by Marc Burger (69Beavershot, Dee Ann & The Nightcaptains, Scam, Triple Dynamite, The Penguin)
At the end of 2009 Karel decided to leave us to persue his future plans in Sweden and as a result to that Eric Haamers (Batmobile, Tio Gringo, Gecko Brother, The Penguin) joined us on double bass in January 2010.
Start of the recordings of our new album which is expected to be released at the end of 2012! ClearartFanartBanner
