They were founded in 1985. A year later they played a concert at Prague’s Rockfest 86 and since then they have been playing mostly in Czech alternative clubs and festivals. Memorable concerts until 89 were for example the concert at the festival in Lipnice 88 after Václav Havel’s speech, or the Slovak festivals Čertovo kolo 87 and 88 (a kind of precursor of multimedia festivals that began to emerge in the nineties). By 1989 the band had several problems with the official authorities, but after the Velvet Revolution they started to release CDs and play in Western Europe in addition to Czechoslovakia. In 2009, the New York Times listed them as “one of the bands that contributed to the fall of the Iron Curtain”.
