For them, our lyrics were way too political. That was the reason why my brother started to learn playing the guitar and he became our guitar player. In 1996, our bass guitarist had to quit, because he concentrated on studying and didn't have enough time for Barackca. So Andrew joined us. He made his debut with Barackca on our third birthday party and is playin with us until today.
We wanted to release our albums on our own, because at that time in Hungary the record labels released PUNK, METAL, ALTEROCK and NAZI stuff together. We kept some of our money and went to a studio and a TAPE factory. It was very cool to do those things with the members of the band and without any influence of the money&brain-eaters. From 1993 to 2001 we played a lot, but didn't leave HUNGARY. In 2000 my brother and I founded our own record label: NEMART records. The next year was the first year we played abroad, but only near the borders like former Yugoslavia, for example. Later, we participated in a Hungarian festival.
That time, a member of the German band "LAK" asked us to play in Germany. We considered that, but since we didn't know anyone there, we couldn't say for sure. These guys therefore helped us to give concerts throughout Europe. In 2002 we gave 58 concerts in seven countries, travelling 21340 kms. In the beginning of 2003, the band moved to Berlin and we lived in KÖPI squat for five months, thanks to the same guys. But we needed to go back to Hungary, because we toured there a lot and wanted to visit our families. Anyway, that year we played 96 times in twelve countries and travelled 46280 kms. By the end of the year we released our latest and hardest album "Open Your Mouth!". We didn't stop touring in 2004, because we wanted to introduce our new CD to everybody. In October our second guitar player - a guy from Germany with Hungarian and German roots - joined us.
In the end of 2004, we toured South-East Asia, visiting Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia. We had a great time with lots of friendly people, met the great scene and many good bands! In total, we played 108 concerts in 20 countries and travelled 69760 kms during that tour." Read more on Last.fm.
