History

At the time Backwater was often compared to a thrashier Motörhead. The band reformed in late ‘90s for a brief period. Tai Pan (later X Ray) was formed after the band's initial break-up. The new bands did not work. The group again reformed in 2007. Then again only Thomas was left and only on guitar carrying the monicker ‘Backwater.’ Hirsch sand on the band’s 2013 album and soon took off. The band was again a trio since Lauble was also gone.
