Östro 430 were the first all female (Punk-)band from Düsseldorf.
They had their first public appearance at the „Schmier Festival“ on May 3rd 1980 at the “Okie Dokie” in Neuss
Often mislabelled as NDW (a.k.a. 'Neue Deutsche Welle') or New Wave, the band was a Punk-band, indeed.
In the first lineup with Monika Kellermann. After Olivia Casali and Marita Welling left the band in 1981 Gisela Hottenroth and Birgit Köster joined them. In 1983 Ralf Küpping came into the band.
