About Guts Pie Earshot
The band was formed in 1991 as a “punk band with cello” called Flowerhouse in Cologne and was born out of Lucy Killed The Dragon. From the beginning, her political affiliation was the Squatters and Caravan Space scene, and their attachment to bands like The Ex, Chumbawamba and Dog Faced Hermans. No Means No also influenced them in their early days. The concerts were and still are often small locations and squats, and connected to the Do It Yourself idea.
In 1993, the band was renamed Guts Pie Earshot. At that time it consisted of Patrick Cybinski (various orchestras, theater music and radio plays), Jean Jacobi (Tecbilek, Ministry of Good Vibrations), Anneke Pohl (formerly with the Bonn-based band Loonies), Alex Franke (technical sound engineer, producer, also PHEW! ) and Gunther Steudel (now a composer of contemporary film music).
