The band " Thin Men" was formed in 1991 from the remnants of "Zaphod Beeblebrox". These remnants consisted of Andy (guitar, taking his leave with the words: "And besides, we endorse the use of biodegradable toilet paper!"), the drummer and Martin Renzler (bass).
After a year of hanging out with other bands, "Thin men" finally emerged with another guitarist. Shortly after, the first demo, titled "Ya wanna get fat?", was thrown on the "market" (hehe). This demo included style elements of King Crimson, the Beatles, Rock & Roll and Reggae in a wild mix, but still sounded a little thin, even for "Thin Men".
That changed in 1993 when the drummer and second guitarist left, and Tino Moskopp (drums) joined the band. The result was a clearer, but also harder band sound. The desire to experiment had clearly increased, as is evident on the second demo "Fuddy-duddy".
The classic trio formation augmented their sound with the addition of electronic drums, sequencers and the Chapman Stick. First gigs in front of larger audiences and good placements (what cruel word in connection with music!) at newcomer competitions were the result.
Between 1993 and 1997, the band played numerous concerts and festivals in Rheinland-Pfalz, the Saarland and North Rhine-Westphalia. They always received good reviews.
In the summer of 1998, the paths of Martin, Tino and Andy parted, but in the next millennium these paths were to cross again. They decided that some of the yet unreleased songs would be worth to be recorded and released. Accordingly, they met up, after a few rehearsals, in February 2011 in Neuwied in the merlin sound studio, to transform this idea into musical reality.
