Biography

Midyear 2006 the Band was founded by the drummer Sebastian "Beppo" May and the bassist Philipp Hofmeister, members of the bands “Broken Jaws” and “Anchors Up” (both Regensburg), who didn’t get discouraged by minor throwbacks. They got the two guitarists Florian Richter and Benjamin Ertl on board, which quickly turned out to be the right thing to do. In order to complete the crew and to have the proper shouter for the target sound “Fiz”, a punk rock icon from Straubing (he knows what it means to walk the plank - son), also joined the band.

The direction that should be kept, was and still is earthy/ down-to-earth, melodic streetpunk with a fair lacing of hardcore, that is tightly embraced by good old rock’n’roll! The band draws its influences from early day punk rock (Cockney Rejects, Cock Sparrer, Ramones...) as well as from bands like U.S. Bombs, The Forgotten, Lars Frederiksen and his Bastards, Dropkick Murphys...only to mention a few of them!
