Multi-instrumentalist Gregor Lausch was, for many years, guitarist and drummer of this gitrock group but left due to "musical differences" with bassist Don Latimer, who in turn was replaced by Jessie Zurawski after Latimer died of a wreck overdose.

"There was news about ‘secret’ gigs (Teetotum at the 100 Volts), band break-ups (horn player Lintun Bumpus had left Teetotum to join Raoul and the Kermadecs, who had subsequently split into two camps), changes in damager (Felix Dale had handed in his notice to Durango 95 to take on the Merry Andrews), and tittle-tattle (Cornelius Layden, Breechclout’s frontman had contracted Chlamydia from a Herbertstraße hooker on a break between some stage II dates). But no one mentioned the Dirty Birds or Sam Ratcliff’s death."
