  1. Jan Claus says:

    ‘Doomy’ was my first chat-nick in 1997 when I started to use internet. It was inspired by the band ‘Doom’, of whom I was a fan. It also fitted the fact that I was a night-person.

  2. The ‘person unknown’ is Marleen if I remember well. She dated our singer Fré and I believe she also did some rehearsals with us (‘4 Minute Warning’) when we were very much into the ‘Antischism’ dual-vox vibe…
