(1989 – 1993)

Meaning bandname: Chronic to the (non structured) core, nervegrinding from start to end.

History: First musical tries were at our house early 1989 when Rob, Margriet and Oene used guitar, bass and flushing toilets or knitting needles for drumsamples to create Dutch spoken absurdities. For real it started when Johnny bought a drumkit and the rest started to try and learn how to (actually) play. After some time Margriet left and Jan H. (later, much later, DANDRUFF founder) joined on vocals, not for long though. As a trio the first gigs were done with RAT PATROL, after which the drummer Henry joined. After gigging and saving for a year, an album was recorded in september 1992. It was produced by Thee J. Johanz. “Crack the blinds” was released in december 1992 on Highly Obscure Records. This line-up lasted ‘til the split-up in early 1993.

Lyrics: Mostly personal experiences with life, death, society and everything else that has a (negative…) influence on a human being. Often they were nihilistic.

Description: An attempt to “zap” through hardcore, punk, metal; no rules only freedom to do as you please. All autodidactic.
