Biography

Genossen were founded in Reutlingen, Southwest Germany, in 1984 by Virus (voice), Schilli (bass), Schneller (guitar) and Matsch (drums). The fast Hardcore Punk of Genossen with its engaged, leftist German lyrics soon developped a big fan community all over Germany. After several tours through Germany Genossen were the first West Punk band to play a socialist country, Hungary in 1985.

3 cassette releases (“Genossen” 1985, “Wehrt Euch” 1986 , “Antichrist/Ghule” 1986), which got good reviews by the European and US press (Flipside, Maximum Rock’n Roll), were followed by the legendary 6 song EP “Fies” on Empty Rec. On this EP Matsch was replaced by MR-16 on drums. At the end of 1988 the line-up changed again with Klausi on drums and Markus on bass. This line-up recorded the demo tape “Keine Chance”. In 1989 there was the last line-up change with Schilli again on bass and singing, Schneller on guitar and singing and MR-16 on drums. After recording the last demo “Das Boese” the band broke up.
