Baby Jail
wurden Ende 1985 gegründet und hiessen zuerst Bébé Foc. Die Urformation bestand aus Boni Koller, Bice Aeberli, Sacha Rohrer und Andy Gruenberg. Das erste Konzert als Baby Jail fand am 1.Januar 86 im Kino Walche in Zürich statt. Moonshine Baby und Sad Movies bescherten der Band 1987 zwei kleine Radiohits. Mit der Veröffentlichung des Albums Trendy und der Single Tubel Trophy gelang 1992 schliesslich auch ein kommerzieller Erfolg: Beide Tonträger waren in den Top Ten der offiziellen Charts platziert und machten den Refrain «Es isch emal en Tubel gsi» zum geflügelten Wort.
Nach ausgedehnten Konzertreisen durch Deutschland und die Schweiz, zeigten sich Ende 1993 bei den Aufnahmen zum letzten Album Benefiz erste Ermüdungserscheinungen. Nach einem doppelten Abschiedskonzert am 28.Mai 94 in Bern (nachmittags) und Solothurn (abends) lösten sich Baby Jail auf. In der achtjährigen Bandgeschichte gab es diverse Besetzungswechsel. Das waren die Mitglieder:
1986 – 1987 Boni Koller git-voc, Bice Aeberli bass-voc-accordeon,
Sacha Rohrer voc-sax, Andy Gruenberg drums
1988 – 1989 Boni Koller git-voc, Bice Aeberli bass-voc-accordeon,
Sacha Rohrer voc-sax, Hepl Caprez drums
1989 – 1990 Boni Koller git-voc, Bice Aeberli bass-voc-accordeon,
Marlen Müller voc-sax, Hepl Caprez drums
1990 – 1991 Boni Koller git-voc, Bice Aeberli bass-voc-accordeon,
Marlen Müller voc-sax, Frank Bestebreurtje drums
1991 – 1992 Boni Koller git-voc, Bice Aeberli bass-voc-accordeon,
Marlen Müller voc-sax, Peter Muster git, Frank Bestebreurtje drums
1992 – 1993 Boni Koller git-voc, Bice Aeberli bass-voc-accordeon,
Peter Muster git, Frank Bestebreurtje drums
1993 – 1994 Boni Koller git-voc, Bice Aeberli bass-voc-accordeon, Peter Muster git, Rolf Eberle drums Im Mai 2003 veröffentlichten Baby Jail das Best-Of-Album AUF WIEDERSEHEN, das die grössten Erfolge sowie ein paar längst vergessene Aufnahmen der Band zusammengefasst. Neben den Highlights aus den Studioaufnahmen lässt eine Bonus-Live-CD erahnen, was den Erfolg von Baby Jail hauptsächlich ausmachte: ihre rasante Bühnenpräsenz. Sportliche Rocknummern wechselten sich ab mit Schnulzen, Spottliedern und eigenartiger Folklore.

Bad Luck
Who needs BAD LUCK?
1979 was the birth year of Bad Luck from Yverdon in the Vaud. A trio consisting of the singer and bass player Guy Niederhauser, Claude-Alain Humberset on guitar, and Eric Fitze on the drums. The following year-and-a-half they played many gigs in front of enthusiastic audiences. Eight songs were also recorded during this time at the Studio 60 in Lausanne; yet, these have never seen the light of day. With the addition of François Mayerat on keyboards, their song repertoire was completely rearranged and, for a while, they merely played occasional shows. Shortly thereafter, Olivier Staempfli also joined the band as the singer. Subsequently, Bad Luck completely bid farewell to the stage, for the purpose of recording a single. Then, on Christmas 1981, their first 7” with the two songs “Hallucinations” and “Destin” came out on Blue Cedar (BC2)—the same label on which “Monsieur Rasoir” (BC1) by the Swiss Punk Band ASB had been released. The following year, the second single by Bad Luck was put out on Mad Music, with the two songs “Le Motard” and “Terre de Feu.” This 7” was financed by Les Dragons, the local motorcycle club and the song was written by Guy Niederhauser and Christian Wyss, the founder and guitarist of the Psychedelic Rock band The Piranhas. In 2013, Robin Wills of the Barracudas posted “Le Motard” online on his blog PurePop and described it in the following way: “I’m a biker, not a delinquent, goes the chorus of this misplaced slice of not so-hell-bent-for-leather Biker Thug Rock.” And furthermore: “The fact that the band came from Yverdon, a centre for watch-making in Switzerland, rather than Hicksville Oregon or Detroit partly explains their safe positioning. However, why does the singer spout these inanities with such venom, why do the guitars roar louder than any bike ever could? Why is the performance so bestial and why do they sound like they really mean it man?” Probably, there is no definitive answer but, instead, this re-release of “Le Motard” in order for everyone to figure it out for themselves… The B-side song, “New World,” actually appears for the first time ever; exclusively provided by the band for this release, because the track comes closer to the drive of “Le Motard.” Following this extraordinary 7” single, there were more songs and gigs, also as a support act for Bernie Constantin. In 1986, Bad Luck called it quits. A few of the musicians participated in new projects and, from 1990 to 1996, Guy, Claude, Eric and Olivier even played together again, without keyboards though. Eventually, the band Silvered formed in 2004, with the same line-up as previously in Bad Luck; new was Marina Niederhauser on keyboards, who remains part of the band since 2006. They are still active under this name. (www.silvered.ch)

The Bastards
The Bastards were founded in October 1977 in Geneva. They originated from the same primeval Punk ooze as the Nasal Boys in Zurich and were important protagonists for the Swiss Punk scene. The driving force was Sandro Sursock. Since the 1960s, he was already involved with the international Rock music jet set and, as of the 1970s, he was a singer in Geneva bands (Locomotive, Thunderbirds, The Slam). For the Bastards, the hyper-energetic Sandro and the ever-charismatic Marie-Pierre shared the vocals. Within a month, the band had already organised their first show at the Zofage and a dozen more would follow thereafter. In Spring 1978, the band also went to the THC Studios in Bernex (Geneva) and recorded nine songs. However, their sole 7″ Single, with the three songs Impossibilities, Danger und Schizo Terrorist, was not released until autumn 1979, after the band had already split up. Marie-Pierre sings the title track Impossibilities by herself, a song about a girl who would rather masturbate than be with a boring guy that’s pursuing her. Sandro also sang with The Rednecks, another Garage Punk band from Geneva. Then, in November 1979 the New Wave group The Zero Heroes were founded in which, aside from Sandro, the brothers John and Francis Seilern, formerly of the Jack & The Rippers, played.

BERMUDA IDIOTS
Die aus Aarau stammenden Bermuda Idiots existierten ein volles Jahrzehnt (1980-90). Die 9-köpfige Band machte vor allem mit witzigen Auftritten und handkopierten Tapes die Schweiz unsicher und spielten in jedem besetzten Haus oder AJZ in der Schweiz. Während 1980 die meisten Aarauer Bands mit ihrem Schnarchrock kämpften, kamen die Bermuda Idiots quasi aus dem Nichts und spielten sich mit ihrem Ska-Punk-Verschnitt in die Herzen der rebellischen Jugend. Ihre ganze Karriere lang wurde die Band schmählich unterschätzt. 1997 erschien eine CD mit ihren besten Songs aus den fünf in den 80er Jahren veröffentlichten Musikcasetten. Im Jahr darauf schrieb der ehemalige Schlagzeuger und damalige Herausgeber des Untergrundblattes Alpenzeiger, Wolfgang Bortlik einen ungemein witzigen, mit Wortspielen und Songzeilen gespickten Roman Wurst und Spiele. Dieser beschwört die Schweiz der tragischen Jungrebellen auf der Suche nach Sex, Drugs, Rock ’n’ Roll & einer Freundin herauf. Halt eben das, was die etwas andere Jugend in den frühen Achtzigern ausmachte: gute Konzerte, wilde Kunst, seltsame Filme, zusammen Herumsitzen ohne Konsumzwang. In 1998 The Bermuda Idiots released a CD called «hit recordings 1980-1990», the last copies are available through the Shop at www.swisspunk.ch

B Goes
In er ersten Hälfte der 90iger Jahre hat Andi Hoffmann mehrmals Musiker wie Chessy Weaver, Hank Shizzoe, Andi Hug, Michel Poffet (um nur einige zu nennen) unter dem Projekt B-Goes für Tourneen und CD Aufnahmen zusammengeführt. Songs wie sun comes up no more, kisses & dreams, und danser avec moi du R&B wurden zu Radiohits und ein fester Teil des CH-Songschaffens.
Bereits 1993 jedoch packte Andi das Fernweh und er verbrachte ein Grossteil seiner Zeit im Süden der Vereinigten Staaten. 1996 kehrt er der Schweiz endgültig den Rücken zu und wandert nach New Orleans aus. Die Zeit ist für B
Goes aber nicht stehen geblieben! Unter dem Namen ANDI HOFFMANN & B GOES hat sich Hoffmann mit einheimischen Musikern eine Band zusammengestellt und sich in New Orleans und den Südstaaten einen Namen aufgebaut. Die Band hat 1999 nahezu 100 Konzerte gespielt und im Sommer 99 eine neue CD herausgegeben. Die CD Basil for Nino wurde von Off Beat und der Times Picayune unter die Bestenliste des Jahres 1999 aufgenommen, ANDI HOFFMANN & B GOES sind für einen Best of the Beats Award nominiert und werden im Mai am International Jazz & Heritage Festival in New Orleans auftreten können.

Black SS Order Cowboys
Der Musiker Daniel Wihler und der Performance Künstler Edi Marconi
gründeten 1981 Red Catholic Orthodox Jewish Chorus und
produzierten in den Jahren 83/84 drei Singelis, diese wurden in der Schweiz
durch Rec Rec und in England von Rough Trade vertrieben. Ihre Auftritte
bestanden immer aus sich wechselnden Formationen, ebenso konnte der Bandnamen
variirien, doch bei den live Auftritten bestand der harte Kern aus Edy und
Daniel. Gedanklich war man immer noch sehr nahe am Punk, die Auftritte und
Performance’s waren immer sehr provokativ, was zu einigen Spiel- und
Auftrittsverboten führte.
Als Gast- sowie Livemusiker fundieren ebenfalls GT und Marco Repetto von
ehemals Glueams/Grauzone. Die beiden formierten sich zu etwa gleichen
Zeit neu mit dem früheren Glueams-Gitarristen Martin Pavlinec und dem Drummer
Dominique Uldry, zuerst als Missing Link, dann unter dem Namen Eiger
Nordwand. 1985 gründeten Edy Marconi, GT und Daniel Wihler Black SS
Order Cowboys und Daniel kurz darauf mit den beiden Performence
Künstlerinnen Susanna und Kathrine Schmutz die gleichnahmige Band Schmutz
Sisters. Ende 1987 gründeten Edy & Daniel I Suonatori. Die Band war vom Konzept
sehr den Futuristen der 20 Jahre angelegt. Die Live Besetzungen änderten von
Konzert zu Konzert. Das erste Release war auf Warrior Records, London im Jahr
1988 und im selben gab es Jahr noch ihr zweiter Release aus der Sounds Session
3 von Radio DRS 3.
Dann Anfang der 90er Jahre noch 2 Tracks auf dem CD Release Soundsession 1-16
wieder von DRS3. 1991 noch die CD Love is on the Way. Heute arbeitet Daniel
Wihler bei swissinfo.ch als Ton-und Videotechniker und lebt in Bern. Als
Musiker betätigt er sich weiter mit dem Electro Ambient Projekt Alphatronic und
seinem zweiten Projekt Tastatur.

Der Böse Bub Eugen (später Eugen)
Der Böse Bub Eugen gab’s von 1983 bis 1990, danach nannten sie sich bis 1998 Eugen, dies, da sie ihren Bandnamen allmählich etwas beknackt fanden. Im Zentrum der Musik stand und steht der Song oder das Lied einerseits und deutsche Texte andererseits. Die Wurzeln liegen im Punk schweizerischer und deutscher Ausprägung Kleenex, Sperma, Mittagspause, FSK, Abwärts, SYPH, ZK und Mittagspause.
Heute ist natürlich alles anders, aber gelernt ist gelernt; auch wenn sich die Bandmitglieder in Eheleute, Väter, Mütter, klassisch ausgebildete Schlagzeuger, lizenzierte Universitätsabsolventen oder Redakteure verwandelt haben.
In der Schweiz wohnen auch Die Aeronauten, dies im selben Haus (Adlergasse 6, Feuerthalen), Rämi hat sie auch ‘produziert’, man tauscht sich aus und ist befreundet. In der Kleinstadt Schaffhausen im Norden der Schweiz unmittelbar an der Grenze zur Bundesrepublik, dort das Andere, die Welt, vielleicht auch nur im Kopf, gibt es eine grosse Welt in der kleinen? Kampf gegen die wattigweiche Repression der kleinstädtischen Geborgenheit, Langeweile, Konkordanzterror, Provinzthekengemütlichkeit. Das bedeutet immer wieder Rausgehen, in und mit der Musik, zum Beispiel bereits 1984/86 für Plattenaufnahmen nach Berlin; dann auch
die Erfahrung, dass – für dieses Beispiel Kreuzberg – nur ein Dorf ist. Was sich als Korrektiv ausgibt, steht im Verdacht einer falschen Koalition. “…ich will in keiner Mannschaft spielen, auch nicht im Hemisphärenfussball, ich will für mich bleiben…” (Wolfgang Koeppen). Die Diskographie als Dennoch-Verbindlichkeiten, Resultate trotzigen Reibungsverlustes, Positionen, Posen sowieso.

The Brains Of Humans
This band was an “accident”, cos we (Andy,Snoopy and me) planned to record the new The Decay demo. It turned out so much better that we decided to form the Brains Of Humans. Andy left soon after again. He was replaced by Amos Rattus
(later in Infected and I.M.C.). We did one gig without a bassist and managed to clear the Kanzleischulhaus after 2-3 songs with only the Bahnhofpunx remaining loyal! Sadly things didn’t work out too well with Amos-his hi pitched vocals mainly. Mind you in Infected he did sing the way we would have loved it!! A little later Chrigu Anarcho joined us after we have seen him with The Biggest Lie (to my knowledge their farewell gig,before they were called Victims Of Society-who I’ve seen practise and live a few times-I offered them to release a 7’’ but sadly the band never recorded anything-and members went on to join Dark Age later and Dambi and Fäbe formed Monalisa Overdrive later).We got ready for a second gig,the legendary first punk/metal gig in Zürich at the GZ Heuried with the help of Dömi (the then Grumpfurts and later Fleisch bassist).Finally got a bassist a little later with Rino and that was the line up until the end.We set out to record an LP and a 7’’ but then Snoopy left the band. We finished the recordings(but not the LP or the 7’’) with the help of Luci (Grumpfurts and Fleisch) on guitar. That was supposed to be the end. Except for the final gig at the Gassechuchi that we played with 2 new folks on guitar and bass as the Pains of Humans. January 1988 and it was over…so they thought! A year later Chrigu, Snoopy, me and the new bassist Kräche reformed the band and we played more gigs than before,even made it to France for 2 gigs! Werecorded our 7’’ Game 88 (which is about the scandal about Mr&Misses Kopp,not some nazi shit!). And we planned a tour of Europe, hence we did a crazy 2000 copies of the 7’’ on our own label Resistance Productions. But we started to disagree on a number of issues so the band split for good after a great gig with the german band EA 80.I n the break of B.O.H. I played in Chain Liberty, Decapitated and Orange World. So once B.O.H. split up we reformed Orange World, while Chrigu and Snoopy formed a band called Nameless and we actually played a gig with them some time later. But that’s another story.The Brains of Humans was an anarcho punkband, that means our message was very important so we passed on lyric sheets at gigs. And we also had the legendary swiss flag that one of us got down from a flagmast in front of the shopping mall where we practised. This caused certain rumours that we were a nazi band. Obviously the guy responsible for that never saw the flag that we of course covered with barbed wire and the typical circle A’s and all. After being kicked out of Sick Records (Andy and Mäge continued as Far Out Records). I started Resistance Productions on my own before Fritze joined in and at some later point all of Earth Citizens were involved in the label as well as the zines “Alternative” (1988-1990) and “No Sanctuary” (1991-1994-monthly!).

The Bucks / Rams
Beginn der über 30 jährigen Zusammenarbeit zwischen dem Schlagzeuger Päde und dem Bassisten Rams waren die erste Punkband der Schweiz, die Nasal Boys. 1977 stösst Rams nach der Veröffentlichung der Single Hot Love als Bassist zu den Nasal Boys, welche als erste Punk-Rockband der Schweiz gelten. Danach recording von der LP Not-A-Talk-A in England, Gigs in London, dies noch unter dem Namen Nasal Boys. Diese werden dann von dem Major CBS in Expo umgetauft, da ihnen der Name zu anrüchig erscheint. Am 24. September 1978 Support-Show von Blondie und The Boys in Zürich. Diese und weitere negative Erfahrungen im Zusammenhang mit der Musikindustrie waren ausschlaggebend für die Band-Auflösung Ende 1978. Als unmittelbare Folge entstand durch die Initiative von Rams (nun auch Sänger) und Päde im September 1979 die Urformation von THE BUCKS – ein Bandname inspiriert durch das englische Frauentrio The Slits, mit dabei auch das phänomenale Jungtalent Stevan Mosh aus Uster als geeigneter Gitarrist. Nicht unbedingt als Frust-Projekt zu bezeichnen, aber eines war klar: man wollte die markt-strategischen Mechanismen umgehen und völlig autonom rocken. Dies gelang weitgehend und nach dem ersten spontan organisierten Auftritt nach einer Gross-Demo in Zürich wurde die Zürcher Szene auf die Band aufmerksam. AJZ Zürich und Lausanne, nicht angekündigte, spontane Auftritte von Zürich bis Genf. Nach einem halben Jahr der absoluten Party-Askese und intensivem arbeiten im Proberaum, kam der typische Bucks-Sound zur Verwirklichung. Danach erste Hollandtour. 1981 Gigs in Berlin und weiteren Stationen in der BRD, Genf, Lausanne, Neuchatel bis Hinterbümpen. Legendärer, dass Konzert als Vorband von Plasmatics vom 1. Februar in Zürich. Danach Volkshaus-Auftritts-Verbot, Festivals, zweite NL-Tour und der Film The Bucks In Holland von Ueli Meier. 1982 umstrittene Migros Tour, der Film: The Bucks – Ein Lebensgefühl des Schweizer TV, dritte NL-Tour, grosse CH-Tour (M-Tour) mit der Genfer Band The Code. Stevan Mosh verlässst die Band im Streit, wird während der Tour durch Yves Roth von The Code ersetzt. Ende Jahr wird das Genfer Management cancelled. 1983, Yves Roth verlässt die Band während der Entstehung des Albums The Fun Out Of Depression und wird aushilfsweise ersetzt durch Peter Glanzman, dazu kommt Philip Kienholz als Keyboarder, da man im Studio vom reinen Gitarrensound abgewichen ist. Beide stehen für einige Shows zur Verfügung, so auch für das legendäre Konzert mit den The Clash in Bern. Alben aus dieser Zeit sind: Brave And Stupid, Young And Weak In The Middle Ages und The Fun Out Of Depression. Das Jahr 1984 wurde mit neuem Management: Urs Ullmann – Fink&Star in Angriff genommen.
Janos Szenogrady ( ex Frostschutz ) und Ralph Schnydrig ( ex- Crazy ) kommen als Gitarristen neu in die Band. Viele Gigs, u.a. im Zeleste, in Barcelona. Vor der Tour in Norddeutschland wurde Ralph (+2009) aus der Band entlassen, da sein übermässiger Drogenkonsum nicht geduldet wurde. Die Band spielte ein komplett neues Repertoire. Allerdings wurden diese Songs nie auf einem Tonträger veröffentlicht. 1985 Rams beschloss nun nur noch bei Live Auftritten zu singen und Bass spielte Felice Müller ( ex. Gianna Nanini ). Weitere Gigs und Festivals. Im 1986 wurden The Bucks auf Eis gelegt und lösten sich für knapp 10 Jahre auf. Zwischendurch hat sich Rams, natürlich nicht ohne Päde als Live-Drummer, auf eigene Pfade begeben und in der Folge die Alben: 1987 Romantic Challenge (im legendären „Can-Studio“ bei Köln, produziert von René Tinner und Helmut Zerlett), 1989 Straight (in England, mit britischen Musikern und Adam & The Ant / Bow Wow Wow-Gitarrist Matthew Ashman. 1991 Rock Over The Village und 1993 Wrecked (wieder mit Ashman) zur Realisation gebracht. 1995 verlässt Matthew Ashman die Band Rams aufgrund seiner angeschlagenen Gesundheit. Gefunden wird der neue Gitarrist Marco Jencarelli. Man spielt einige Shows und Festivals. Danach verlässt ebenfalls Donovan Szypura die Band Richtung Australien. Man beschliesst, zum Trio geschrumpft und aufgrund dessen, sich wieder The Bucks zu nennen! Durch Auftritte und Veröffentlichnungen weiterer Alben sind sie bis heute in jeder westeuropäischen Hauptstadt, unzähligen Städten und Dörfern auf grossen, kleinen oder gar keinen Bühnen dem gerecht geworden, was man landläufig als Rock’n’Roll bezeichnet. Am 27. November 2009 last show of The Bucks im Sedel Luzern. Thank you and good night! Die meisten der genannten Personen waren gute Freunde – es gab darunter welche, die waren keine guten Freunde. Seit 2012 ist Rams unter seinem eigenen Namen wieder musikalisch unterwegs…

The Buechsenbeers
The Buechsenbeers bestanden von 1986 bis 1990. Röbi Wälti, Richi Egli und Remo Schnetzer, alle drei vormals bei X-tra, jammten nach deren Auflösung zu dritt ohne Drummer dafür mit Schlagzeugcomputer. Darauf stiessen Drummer Maurizio “Mogly” Trové sowie Sängerin Manuela Hutter dazu. Drummer Maurizio “Mogly” Trové verliess die Band und wurde durch Ditschgi Gutzwiller ersetzt. The Buechsenbeers gewannnen 1988 am Schweizerischen Rockwettbewerb Vernier sur Rock einen der Hauptpreise, nämlich eine Maxisingle produzieren zu können. Diese Maxi-Single wurde in Genf aufgenommen, produziert von Jürg “Boots” Stiefel, einem bekannten Musiker aus Wl. Danach folgten viele Konzerte, zum Beispiel in der Roten Fabrik als Vorband von RAMS.Weitere Stationen waren Kaserne Zürich, Frison Fribourg, Reithalle Bern, Grabenhalle St.Gallen, Café Mocca Thun, Sedel Luzern sowie “die grosse Fuhr” in der Tonhalle Wil. Danach ereilte die Combo, die kräftigen Punkrock mit Country-Einfluss spielte, das übliche Schiksal einer Rocktruppe: Sex, Drugs und Zoff. Mit einem kurzen Comback im Jahre 1996 konnte nicht mehr an die vorherigen Erfolge angeknüpft werden. Emanuela Hutter war danach bei MD Moon und ist heute bei Hillbilly Moon Explosion, ehemals Hillbilly Headhunters. Der spätere Guitarrist Beat Solèr war danach bei Hamlets Fish und Neros Dinner, Mitglied der Künstlergruppe Halle K und ist heute unter dem Namen Seelenluft in Berlin in der elektronischen Musik eine Grösse.
