The Last Mile started out with Rommert on guitar, René on guitar, Emil on bass and Arys on drums in april of 2000. All members hailed from Groningen and our practiceroom is in the heart of the Groningen scene, 'het Viaduct'. René 's old bands Office killer, Resent and Yphobia all disbanded in a period of a couple of months before so it was time for something new. Rommert came from Yphobia. Emiel was the singer of Catweazle, which had disbanded also. Arys played in Seizure and Default, and had some time on his hands to do something besides this. A singer was soon found in the person of Jaap, the old singer of Resent and Yphobia. He had just returned from a long visit to Norway. The first one to leave the band was Emil, because of moving to the south of the country. He was replaced by Wouter of Revolt. Second one was Arys, he chose for his other bands after being unable to keep playing in three bands at once. Arys was replaced by Daniel also from Revolt. The first show was at the WSPA-benefit organized by Wouter, in march of 2001. A succesful gig playing with 8 other bands and 265 visitors. Wouter had to leave the band due to personal problems in the summer of 2001. Jaap started playing bass besides singing which makes us a four-piece nowadays. After playing some gigs and putting some money away we recorded in december of 2001 at the SingSing-studio's in Metslawier. The result were 7 songs which will be pressed on 10" and released by Franz from Sabotage records and distro.
