Music video

2000?

Bart: The “reunion” which almost happened some years ago is truth. Around the millennium shift, the band did intend to reunite, but Tim Baker (vocals) wasn’t interested in that point of time according to Greg in an interview. Gerrit Mutz was offered to take hand of the vocals, but he said no, because he could never replace Tim.
