The permanent members Barbara (voice, keyboards), Schilli (bass) and Schneller (Guitar) made their first musical experiences with the "Familie Hesselbach" precedessor „ABC“, the London psychobilly band The Demonic Wardrobes and Reutlingen's first punkband „Vermin“, later „Name“. The first demo tape „Die Alten + UEQ“ was recorded in 1982 together with drummer Knacki. On the b-side were 2 songs by Schilli and Schneller, presenting under the pseudonym „UEQ“ a more electronic sound, which was typical for the second demo „Mitternacht“. On "Mitternacht" Karin joined the band on trumpet, and a rhythm machine took over the drumming job. Most of the Alten gigs were played with this line-up.
On the last demo „Die Alten 3: Noch mehr Arbeit“ 1984 drummer Roman replaced Karin. After a few more gigs Die Alten split up and Schilli and Schneller founded the hardcore punk band Genossen.
