Biography

It´s almost ten years ago since the band GALLOWS POLE appeared the first time on the german scene. Their history started when three young musicians, from the former Yugoslavia whose musical success was cut short by the war in their country, hit the german stage.

The first apperance of GALLOWS POLE was short because bassist/vocalist and mainsongwriter John A.B.C. Smith left to join the band SCANNER in 1993. Two yeas later, after Scanners `95 release “Mental Reservation” John left the band consenquently, because there he could not find his inner peace and startet again to work on his own songs. In a rented studio he took up the work to his selfnamed project “John A.B.C. Smith”. The project was conceived, played, arranged and produced by John alone and resulted in the CD “The Revelation of John”.

The foundation for the GALLOWS POLE reunion were unwrittingly laid with the release of this CD.
John began to look for a suitable group of musicians to release the music in a live setting. Only two people immediatly sprang to mind - his old Gallows Pole collegues Zokk Milosh and Hakan Topcu. After a few gigs and sessions with their old friend Amir Jesenkovic on second guitar, Adnan Davidoff was quicky recruited as the fourth core member of the band.

In 1999 Gallows Pole`s hibernation came to the end. The right music and the right musicians came together and their three track demo “Over The Rainbow” beat hundreds of other bands to be included on Rock Hard magazines sampler CD in february of 2000.
