Good news for endangered species everywhere! Straight outta the sin city of Amsterdam, four guys with big apetites cooked up a rock'n'roll dish best served rare!

The simmering began in 2006 with the line-up consisting of 'Raw' Rogier Heumakers (The Shining) on bass, Gilian 'Profundo P' de Haas (The Anomalys) on guitar, Marko '5 ft. 7' Petrovic on vocals and the legendary OpzienBarend van der Meer (Frites Modern) on drums. The music blends the muscular proto-punk rnr of The Dictators and The Stooges with shake-your-ass-able hooks in the vein of The Fleshtones and The Ramones.

Lyrically, the band deals with taboo issues ranging from the problems of the modern male (Endangered Species) to intergenerational love (I wanna Date your Mom) and obesity (I Might Have Love Handles, But I Can't Handle Love). Live, the band brings the atmosphere to a boiling point with sleazy, greasy, high energy Rock 'n' CholesteRoll!

It's name? The Works.

It's mission? Conquering the world, one sweaty shithole at a time.

Come on in and take a bite!
