A brief history..?

 
In a dark and doomed age of global discomfort and economical crisis a group of 5 friends meet each other at a small tavern in the centre of the west woods near the shores of the southern seas in the north.  Sitting at the bar the owner tells them a story of a potion he got from vague figure which should give him great powers. The owner has his doubts and didn’t want to test it. When he described the potion as a yellow sparkling liquid with foamy topside the 5 friends instantly knew that this potion could save the world. They convinced the owner the let them use it and after that history is a foggy mix between Legends and truth…
All which is known to mankind is that the liquid gave these 5 friend awesome powers. One of them got the power of thrilling beats. The second received the gift to produce lyrics of joy while letting his fingers ride steel wires of low notes. The third friend reviled the great talent to pick the perfect after beat on his mighty axe. The fourth and fifth of the friends had the power to produce screaming high notes and vibrating lows combined with dance moves  which are never seen before.
Knowing they can never live without the power of their yellow potion they combined their talents to travel stages around the world with a mind blowing sound of third wave Ska mixed with punk, rock, pop and every imaginable music style possible. The sound they produce is of such a dangerous level of joy and fun that they had to use their name as a warning sign……
Legends say that the impact of their show can only be countered with great amounts of tavern potions but others claim that it will only amplify the effects.
The only thing people remember is that they’ve been hit by what they call “A giant blast of Fun” and they felt their lives worth celebrating again. People shouted phrases like;

... To let you in our building is one of the best decisions I’ve ever made in my life ( Jim Vorwald -Radio 3 FM )…

… This is my favourite live act in ages ( Mathijs van der Meer – Radio 501 )…

…We want more!! ( Various crowds – the western European Areas )…
