The main object of Kiss My Jazz was to make "jazz-crooners" in the style of Chet Baker and Nat King Cole. Soon the music became more experimental and rough with lots of improvisations, and influences from bands like Rip Rag & Panic, Marc Ribot, Louis Neefs, James White, Pavement and Chet Baker became more obvious.
The origin of the band can be found around the beginning of 1992, with Rudy Trouvé, Heyme Langbroek, Elko Blijweert and Jacki Billet. Soon afterwards Aarich Jespers & Stef Kamil Carlens of Moondog Jr (later Zita Swoon) joined the band. Craig Ward (later with dEUS) and Mark Meyers (earlier with dEUS) came in 1994.
A lot of musicians were part of the band and often came around to play and sing: Dirk de Hooghe, Mauro Pawlowski, Simon & Buni Lenski (DAAU), Piet Jorens, Dave Robertson, etc.
