Proin ac pede vel ligula facilisis gravida purus. Etiam sapien. Duis diam urna, iaculis ut, vehicula ac, varius sit.
In 1994 I started playing music and write lyrics .
We met (Arthur Havenaar/MCT) eachother in a cofeeshop in the Hague (NL) called “Demo”, this was a shop where a lot of musicians came together. We started with two guitars and a drumkit. The first time we jam togeter was at my home those days at the Vailliantlaan, and after a few minutes I told Arthur that we would start to form a band.This first contact was the beginning of the song “Ratata”. We called this newborn-band “Big Blue Heron” , because Arthur was really into birds. We didn’t took it seriously and it took a fewyears before we find us a drummer.
In 1997 a band called “Atari Teenage Riot” played in our hometown and after the showe a guy came to me, and said “I’m Edward Tan, I’m your new drummer.’’ I was really suprised, because we didn’t do much to find one.
Then we got a new bandname called “Nul uur 15” .We practiced every saterday afternoon in my livingroom at the Piet Heinstraat.
After a few weeks my dad, and the other neighbours started to complain about the noise. We decided to find a practiceroom and started at “the blue and white” studios in Scheveningen. It was a little, dark room but we where happy to make noise. After all NO NEIGHBOURS !
Than Edward found ourselves a new place to play near Holland Spoor station.This place was great, big room with a kitchen.
But Jos and Arthur weren´t happy anymore with Edward and in may `99, we decided to find another drummer.. Than Harold Tan came in the band, a guy from Zoetermeer. But in june 2000 he stopped with music.
Than we asked Edward back in the band, but after a few months it was clear that we did´nt have the right drummer, so for the second time we stopped with him.
And than we got ourselves a new drummer called “Edward Silva” who was playing in coverband called”crossover”.
Dave Gülmez also joined the band on solo-guitar and we got a new name: Rastapopoulos, a guy from the “hergë” cartoons.
