Egypt Wonder

In 1985, I bought my very first synth (a Korg Poly-800) and started playing together with my friend RenĂ©. Shortly after, Christian joined and we formed our first band, named after a cosmetics product that Christian’s mum used at the time. We put all our synths and drum machines together, got everything sequenced from a very early version of Cubase on a C-64 and just played away.

In 1987, we played our first and only concert in the main auditorium at our high school. It remained our only concert… And this is what is left to remind us of those days back then.
