Frontal (3)

Profile:
FRONTAL was formed in Wels during the riots of the new german (punk-) wave in 1981. The first band members were Franz Reischl, Dieter Esterer, Georg Jungwirt and Klaus Buttinger. Franz, Dieter & Klaus also played together with Kid "Meuchel" (later "Cyclon Bäh") in the predecessor "Franz Brandtwein's Kinda" in 1980, which supposed to be the second punk band out of Wels. So which was the first?
They had appearances in Wels and Linz (Cafe Landgraf, Stattwerkstatt...), and in 1982 Thomas Trauner joined the band with his sax and a Casio keyboard. They recorded the song "Keine Ahnung" for the city compilation "Traun Stadt Kinder" in 1983, together with some other local new wave and rock bands, and played gigs from Vienna to Salzburg and also across the austrian boarder. They changed their lineup anually around the core musicians Reischl, Esterer, Buttinger and Trauner.
In 1984 Silvia Pumberger and her bass guitar caused some hormonal disharmony in the band, which led to the exit of Thomas in 1985. The rest of the band recorded a 7inch under the name "Tina4" on "Cactus Records", which got airplay on austrian radio stations, and entered the austrian charts. Later on they appeared in the TV-show "Live aus dem Schlachthof" in the south-german television. The band existed till the late 80s in different lineups.
In 1997 the band was reactivated with all the original members from 1982. After nearly 10 reunion-years Klaus Buttinger left and Martin Holli joined the band.
