MY OWN LIES & Y: (2003) Tough Guys Save The World..to Death

Ralf and Steffen (who share their apartment) got to know each other very well and they were absolutely needing to have a new fast core-band, so that Ralf (actually drummer) could play bass once again. Steffen got to know Martin, guitarist of NYCTOPHOBIC through a mutual friend and asked him if he wanted to join their new project and if he knew a vocalist.
Martin asked me, Zimbo (NYCTO's vocalist)about screaming in a Hardcore-band and I also joined that project because I was already waiting for such an opportunity but actually as guitarist... When we met the first few times Martin and Steffen played guitars, Ralf played bass, Nanouk (COSTA'S CAKE HOUSE) played drums and I was supposed to "sing". With that line-up we created the first two songs (superficial and life controlled) but Nanouk unfortunately had to come from the longest distance to our rehearsal room without a car and he is also having two further side-projects and C.C.H., so we couldn't practice very often... After a few conversations with us and without Nanouk he left the band without any negative vibrations, because we were not satisfied with practicing so rarely. Then we thought about the new line-up with only four people, that's when I told the other ones, that I'd prefer playing guitar - so Ralf gave up the bassplaying and sat down again on his drum stool (what he first didn't want to...) and Martin started playing bass and today's line-up was fixed:
Ralf - drums/vocals (PRONE/STACK/x-DIAVOLO ROSSO/x-CHOREA ...)
Martin - bass (NYCTOPHOBIC)
Zimbo - guitar/vocals (NYCTOPHOBIC)
Today I think our little project has become a band and we all have loads of fun with creating songs and playing them live. We still play (very) fast and varied Hardcore combined with punkish and metalish guitar riffs and our lyrics (written by Ralf and Zimbo) are about society, political and even emotional topics - in general about life and what we see and read. I hope that was enough info for you, if you need to know more about us just e-mail and we will try to answer all your questions. ...and now for something completely different, Zimbo. (2000)
