Sans Secours

Sans Secours was my first band. Together with Uwe Bubik (Bass / Voc), Cheever (Git) and Daniel Bauer (Dr) we started in 1990 in Graz. Our first demo “Avec” was produced by Oliver Welter (git & voc of Naked Lunch) and the artwork was done by Dieter Puntigam.

In this lineup we recorded another EP called “Sans Secours”, a LP called “Harris” and a demo called “Live Dubs”. Our first internationally released album came out in 1997 and was titled “Need”. Daniel left the band shortly before the album was released and we left to Dortmund Germany and Heli Zechner (former 3 Gordons) joined the band on drums.

From here on the band really started to work hard. Together with our Manager Bert Offermann  from “DOXA Records”, we played nearly 300 Shows in 3 years in Germany, Austria, BeNeLux, France, Switzerland and Slovenia.

In 1998 Heli left the band and Rainer Binder-Kriegelstein joined it. In this year we released a vinyl only EP called “Boogie Down” and in 1999 our last LP called “Reverb”.

So far we did these records together:

  • Musquash (Demo)
  • Live Dubs (Demo)
  • Avec EP
  • Harris (Demo)
  • Sans Secours EP
  • Need (Demos)
  • Need LPCD
  • Soundtrack for “Wie viele Jahre” motion picture
  • Boogie Down EP
  • Reverb LPCD
  • Helfbrunn (Demo)

Since I moved back to Austria in 2012, we thinking about making a new album together…
