  1. Ben 'Hiatus' says:

    I no longer play for ‘Pirato Ketchup’.
    Nowadays I’m doing this band ‘Komplikations’ with my friends Lio from Liège and Alen (the guy behind P.G.L. Aachen who’s still very active organizing punk events since the last 25 years or so… He was one of the first to invite ‘Hiatus’ over in Germany in the very early nineties). Anyway ‘Komplikations’ is a synth-punk band, in the vein of ‘The Units’, ‘Screamers’… We have a one-sided album.
