Founded in 2005 by Daniel Buess (dr, metal objects, electronics), Marco Papiro (g, bg, synth) and Michael Zaugg (org, synth, electronics), by the time they met they were already well acquainted with experimental forms of bruitage.
Daniel Buess (dr/electronics) is percussionist and founder member of Ensemble Phoenix, a renowned ensemble for contemporary music, and has also been drumming in a latter version of legendary noise pioneers 16-17. Papiro and Michael Zaugg forged their own bad reputation as some of the more radical drone musicians around.

In the past they have been on stage or collaborating with the likes of John Duncan, Tim Hodgkinson, Zbigniew Karkowski, Mani Neumeier, Phill Niblock, Pere Ubu, Psychic TV, Martin Rev, E.A.R./Sonic Boom, Damo Suzuki, Kasper Toeplitz, The Young Gods and Zu amongst others.
