Störung was brought to life in 1981. Two young individuals from Europe (Netherlands) namely Eugenius and Arian Brunwin gifted the eighties their unique style of experimental Minimal & Cold Wave, both in various recordings as well as on stage.

Memorable songs originating from 1981 are 'Radio Lines', 'Two Miles' and 'Dreadful Dance'. 'Dreadful Dance' was released with B side 'All Bow' as a 7 inch single on Clogsontronics records in 1981 and became an instant hit in many underground youth clubs. In 1981 en 1982, Störung toured extensively around Europe and the band gave numerous concerts and radio appearances. In 1982, the band released their first album 'This Is Future' (Clogsontronics / produced by Ton Willekes). Live recordings were made for radio (i.e. VPRO Radionome), television (VPRO Hotel Suburbia) and several recordings were made of live concerts (i.e. live at the Trojan Horse, the Hague). The track 'Empire SX' was released in 1983 on a Clogsontronics compilation album. A song called 'Warschau Pact' introduced the use of conventional drums (toms) vigorously played by Eugenius on stage. The band went into several studios in 1984 and recorded ‘Europe Calls', Woman Of The Dark', 'Desert Dance' and 'Siberia'. These recordings were never released in the eighties but the band continued to create more material and released its second album 'Inside the Black Box' in 1985. The album contained songs such as 'The Border', 'Circus Time', 'Sharpen the Metal' and it was followed up by a European tour that lasted from 1985 to 1986. The band gave its last concert mid 1986. After retiring from stage a recording containing a song called 'Wildstorm' and three other tracks that are unfortunately lost and are yet to be found, were produced in 1987. This demo recording wrapped up the eighties for Störung and was named 'the Sewer Age 9'. Plans for the following decade were made but the band officially broke up in 1988. Still during the nineties and the following years, Eugenius continued to play guitar and on a limited basis continued to record whilst struggling with life as a result of mental health problems and legal issues.

In 2005, Eugenius got notified of renewed interest in Störung that made him decide to resurrect the heritage of the band. Since then, the classic material has been revisited by various record labels. Clogsontronics released a brain-draining track called 'INDUCTION - the Enochian Remix', written and recorded in 1999 that saw the day of light in 2007. The same year, US based label Minimal Wave released 'Europe Calls' on 7 inch vinyl. The track is described as a “minimal dancefloor killer”! In 2008, Combinator Records re-released 'The Art of Combining' which originally is a bootleg of live recordings on audio cassette and Clogsontronics re-released the 'This Is Future' album on both vinyl and CD in one package.

In 2009, Storung (now without the dots on the 'o') started to make preparations for live appearances and incarnated in a new line up consisting of dedicated musicians for vocals (Noveria), guitars (Eugenius), bass guitar (Giovanni Beck, later replaced by Robowave) and drums (Stephanie Klei). Still containing a flavor of Minimal and Cold Wave, Storung moved in to a more heavier 'Industrial' sound delivering a spectacular show on stage. Storung (mark II) showcased live in December 2009 and delivered two other live appearances in 2010. The band recorded several demo tracks with producer Marcus Bodine (Deadcell) to capture the intensity of Storung’s pulsing drums and bass guitar sounds layered on top with bombing guitars and blasting vocals. A video for the track ‘Are You Gonna Sigh’ was released in December 2010. The project ended in 2011 due to lack of support and due to (again) legal issues in the personal life of Eugenius.

In the thirtieth year of existence (2011), Storung transformed from a band project to a studio project and digitally released a remix of ‘Are You Gonna Sigh´ (Pulverised Club Edit). The year 2012 was a year of settlement, reconciliation and exploration. The Storung project, consisting of Eugenius and Stephanie Klei was able to collaborate with Europe’s most talented singer: Sadhana Lila. The collaboration resulted in a final version of ‘Circus Time’, released in April 2013. The single includes a remix 'Circus Time - the Ballroom Remix´. The same month will see digital re-releases of the ‘Induction’ CD and of the classic album ‘This Is Future’.

What holds for Storung the coming years is a huge treasure of musical creativity that still can be unleashed. Building upon the catalog of recordings is the primary objective. The ultimate goal is a third incarnation live on stage.
