They sound quite like early Sonic Youth, Glenn Branca, Rhys Chatham and the Boredoms. They normally have at least 4 guitarists, a bassist, a baritone and between 1 and 4 drummers and have also played with brass and string instruments in the line-up.

They have a die-hard gigging ethic, playing over 90 shows across Europe in 2009. They have an American tour lined up for 2009 from the beginning of September until November.
