ST 12 was officially formed on January 20, 2004, although its members had long been in the music world. Earlier, they were not known to each other. They often met in the rental studio in East Station Street 12, Bandung. The band was named for the father of Pepep, Helmi Aziz. Charly liked jazz, Pepep liked jazz and rock, while Pepeng grew up with rock music. After failing to get a recording contract, ST 12 went indie (independent). Their debut album,Jalan Terbaik was released in 2006. Unfortunately, during the promotional tour in Semarang, Iman Rush died after a brain hemorrhage in October 2005.
The success of their debut album ST 12 caught the attention of Trinity Optima Production. ST12 also released a second album P.U.S.P.A(2008) in tribute to Iman Rush.
Charly and Pepeng quit from ST 12 management and launched Setia Band, but this name has been used by Setia Band from Lampung since April 14, 2010. In May 2012, one of the member from Lampung went to Jakarta to see Charly, but until now there are no news. (2004–2011)
