The begining of the band was made on Till's birthday party in 1986. The bands who were supposed to play there didn't have any sound system. So Jörg was able to get a working system for the bands and himself to play on. After Till mentioned to him that he plays drums they decided to play music together. After playing together with a lot of different guitar players Richard joined the band. As a singer they found Stefan Schröder. During the begining the band had a lot of guest musicians that played any instrument, like trumpet or something else. The first practice of the band took place in a small house of a railway guard.
