These Berlin rockers took their old school punk heritage and blended it with "more mature and diverse" elements, which owns them frequent comparisons to fellow Berliners The Beatsteaks. Their two albums (with their very eye-catching artwork), Adam and Eve, gorged with rock'n'roll energy as well as highly hummable melodies, are a hit with the jamendo crowd. The band used to have a label and employ "classic marketing channels", but that could only reach so far. Now they're all for doing it themselves and spreading the love of free music.
