History
The band was founded by Bichon and Patrice in 1987. This short-lived thrash metal band incorporated hardcore influences into its music. The band recorded its Ruthless World demo two years after it was founded and issued it the year after in 1990. The Troubles demo followed. A label called New Rose picked up the band for its sole album. Second guitarist Erwan Disez did not make it to the album, but was in Working Class Zero years later. The group disbanded in 1994.

Bichon died at age 52 in 2019. Al Kapott was a punk band in the ‘80s that briefly reformed in 2005.
