peter kruder und rodney hunter sind seit jahrzehnten buddies, sie wuchsen in derselben nachbarschaft wiens auf. somit ist eine kollaboration der zwei jungs längst Überfällig. die story wurde konkreter, als sich peter (15) und rodney (13) häufiger in peters heim trafen, um zu jammen und ihre musikalischen erzeugnisse, ein gemisch aus james brown, gary newman und sogar bauhaus, auf kassette aufzunehmen, mit spezieller kruder/ hunter handschrift. kurze zeit später schrieben die beiden musikgeschichte mit ihren kommenden neuen projekten. die beiden verloren sich auch jahre später nie aus den augen und treffen sich regelmäßig, um in alten zeiten zu schwelgen, als sie das tape deck rockten. inspiriert durch eines dieser gespräche wollten sie nun wieder gemeinsam musik erschaffen, einzig mit dem ziel, das einst begonnene mit dem damaligen spirit und den ideen aus jenen zeiten zu ende zu bringen. das resultat dieser jüngsten jam-sessions sind zwei fantastische tracks, das spektakuläre this is what you get und der Überwältigende tune namens addicted to ganja.
