Biography

Richmond, United States

There are at least two bands called Cretins or The Cretins: One is a German early 80s punk band from Hannover. The other one is a an American Pop Punk Band which started to perform in the 90s.

1)
The German Cretins released one self titled 7’ EP in 1980 another 10’ EP called Man Between Walls in 1985, a split 7’ single with Blut + Eisen and a couple of compilation songs.

In April 1995, the Boston based pop punk band The Cretins first crawled out from under the rock that kept them from annoying the masses. The band was formed when high school friends Murf and Bernie finally got off there asses and actually got a band together rather than just talking about it. With the addition of Kato SA and Drummer Dave, the line up was complete. Problem was they had no place to practice. So they got resourceful and showed up at open mic nights and would play/practice until they were kicked of they stage. Which happened rather quickly because they were playing in a metal bar in Revere, MA. Fortunately for them when one of the bouncers (who was a vest wearing Hells Angel) heard them, he let them play for as long as they wanted because he was a huge Ramones fan. So of course they would play Ramones covers mixed with the songs Bernie and Murf wrote in their living room. The band finally got their own rehearsal space but soon after Bernie left the band. Court documents site irreconcilable differences. Tabloids report it was over a girl.
