Two boys Alexander Krasilnikov and Renat Rustamov started to play metal music, but the "list" of other musicians was very variable. The "new" members came and left and stable team did´not exist.

They took part in many festivals - YOU RULES in Danilov, HEAVY SPRING in Jaroslavl or they were part of opening program of motocross cup in Rybinsk . They supported some respected russian metal bands to, for example ARDA or ARIDA VORTEX, EAZY DIZZY, MAVRIN ...

excerpts from great GABI SCHWANKE´S arcticle:
" he was asked to join the band (Dr. Feelgood) in January 1983. The first concert was in Monte Carlo. Gordon made four albums with Dr Feelgood: Doctors Orders, Mad Man Blues, Brilleaux and Classic. By the way, Gordon was the one who suggested to cover the song "Mad Man Blues". Since leaving Dr Feelgood he lived in Paris and started off by doing studio work and backing French and American singers on stage. In 1984 he played some gigs with EDDIE & THE HOT RODS, then decided to concentrate on his duo TWO TIMERS which consists of Gordon and his fabulous partner Sarah James.The first Two Timers album was released in April 1996."

FEW EXCERPTS FROM HIS BIO:
The First One
A guitar prodigy from the age of four, South Texas born Brent Johnson always knew where he wanted his playing to take him. Drinking in the very best of Blues, Jazz, Rock, Punk, Country and World Music, by the time his family moved to New Orleans in his teens, he was predestined towards a career in music. Writing his own material, Brent formed several high-school bands, all with a lean to the Blues, then joined ‘Under The Gun’, who built a considerable following on the local live circuit in Louisiana and beyond.
The Second One:
“My sound is rooted in the Blues, though I don’t pretend to be a purist, and I don’t want to be” he explains, “ I write music based on my experiences and the sounds I grew up with... I never want to pretend that I had the same experiences as the old Bluesmen did – so I’m not going to go around trying to sound like them. What I do is put the emphasis on the feeling of the music, the passion, the urgency, the directness – that’s the goal”.
The Third One:
Brent describes himself as “always a guitarslinger... I always loved songwriters and wrote songs for myself”. Interestingly, despite an omnivorous musical appetite and a very distinct love of Blues, Brent, when pushed , would list his four favourite songwriters as eclectic Houston guitarist Chris Whitley, Austin's own Ian Moore,( a writer himself influenced by World, Folk and Blues music), along with British stalwarts Elvis Costello and Joe Strummer. He describes his favourite music as “raw, honest and dirty.”
THE THREE LOOKS AT THE NO GRUNGE FACE OF SEATLE:
The first one:
RJ Knapp & Honey Robin, from the greater Seattle,WA area, are emerging as one of the premier, high energy, hard hitting, original and rocking, blues bands.
The Second One:
RJ Knapp & Honey Robin, the exciting new addition to the artist roster at Critical Sun Recordings, announce the release of their explosive new album, Don’t Blame the DYNAMITE…If you can’t light the fuse! Smart, Witty, Rocking Bluz! Chicago born RJ Knapp, is a 30 year veteran of the Seattle music scene, and has played music ranging from Classic Rock, Top 40, to Soul, Funk and Blues, from California to Canada. Second only to his phenomenal guitar playing skills, are his song writing abilities. While playing in Seattle’s Pioneer Square circuit in the 80's, RJ was given the moniker of Mr. Bluz, that stands to this day. Robin "Honey Robin" Mahaffey brings her smooth and sultry voice to the blues! With her classical training and background in Opera, Swing and R&B, she is now setting the Seattle blues scene ablaze.
The Third One: Who is in the band?
RJ Knapp on lead guitar and vocals,
Robin Mahaffey on lead and backup vocals,
Robert Baker on Bass
Rick J Bowen from the Stacy Jones band as a drummer on the CD "Don't Blame The DYNAMITE...If you can't light the fuse!"
KILLER HEAVY GUITAR BLUES ROCK BAND FROM SOUTH AFRICA!
Pebbleman is really the brainchild of guitarist Richard Pryor, who is one of the few south african players with an endorsement from fender!
There is a great mix between the upbeat and laid back tracks, this is as straightforward blues rock as you can find these days!
Pebbleman defines what superb hard blues rock excellence feels and sounds like!
Pebbleman is the real deal. The band is powered by Jesse Jordan, an amazing singer whose vocals oozes with soulful passion. Richard Pryor (no relation to the comedian) on guitar, this guy can play some serious smokin’ blues guitar! Rounding out the band are Rob Stemmett on bass and Kevin Gibson on drums.

What can I say about these musicians, their wonderfull band and their wonderfull music?
ROCK WILL NEVER DIE!
Anything more about them?
THEY ARE AS GOOD AS KAMELOT OR CLIVE NOLAN´S ARENA OR CARLJOHAN GRIMMARK´S NARNIA!
Founding members, lead guitarist Shane Lamotte, and vocalist / guitarist Jason Lamotte, joined together in 2002 and spent the next years perfecting their first album. The record was a combination of songs written over a 5 year span and was a journey from aggression to self-realization. The brothers were accompanied on their debut album by studio musicians (Andrew Degroot and Lyle Molzan) and have since formed a solid touring and recording group.
After the release of the first album the band played numerous shows and festivals in western Canada (many of which consisted of opening for signed acts) and worked on new material for their next album. All while their single “Whispers” from the debut album made it to the Top Ten of various University & College charts and received airplay in Canada, the UK and the United States.
With the band having written copious amounts of new material they chose the best of the best with their producer Kevin Hoskin and headed into Beta Sound Recording Studio to record the new album “Suffering”. A year and a half later it’s been released and already their first single “Let’s Start Over” has received some mainstream radio airplay (source - homepage).
