At that time some fans compared them with the likes of Nirvana and spoke of "the belgian Nirvana"…

After the album "Disco Colorado" an EP, "Snaps, Crackles & Pops" followed but after that the band broke up. Some of the members of The Excessives were also active in the band DILDO WARHEADS wich career was somewhat more succesfull…
