Started as an all female punk band in 1979. By 1981 Geralda Geertsma (guitar, antropofoon*) and Lies van Duijl (vocals, flute) had left. First album The Ideal was released in 1982.
Core members were Josée, Arie and Marleen.
After some changes in line-up including the introduction of some men A State Of No Mercy was released in 1986. The music is still somewhat rooted in punk but clearly influenced by new wave and rock.
*) antropofoon is the band's name for 'a piece of wood with six strings'.
