The band is one of the oldest Latvian rock bands outside of Latvia, dating from 1979. The group disbanded in the early 1980s, but reformed in 1989, according to the band’s Web site. The death of 28-year-old guitarist Juris Jostiņš cut short the band’s revival. But in 2002, the band reformed again. Since then, it has played several concerts in the United Kingdom.
