Ladies and Gentlemen

Welcome to the world of The Anacondas! A world of fast cars, seductive ladies, werewolves and cold-blooded spies. Right now we'd like to take you on a secret mission... Mission Anaconda's gonna be a hell of a ride, so fasten your seatbelts and get with the program... Come on!

The Anacondas Prague 2005


The Anacondas started out around early 2000. Band members were Messerschmitt Marzl (drums), Jack Stuka (bass, sometimes rythm guitar), Johnny Torpedo (guitar) and Pete Python (flute, synthesizer). We all got this goofy nick names just for fun, and ofcourse it represents our twisted personalities.

Live action


Ever since we saw Quentin Tarantino's "Pulp Fiction" and got blasted away by the opening track "Miserlou" by Dick Dale, we wanted to play kick ass, spaced out, groovy, reverb drenched and heavily surf influenced rock 'n' roll. Since then we did lots of shows in Holland, Germany and the U.S.A. in all kindsa clubs like squats, youth centres, tiki bars, pubs, sex clubs, beach clubs, bigger venues like the Amsterdam based Melkweg and Paradiso; we played at private parties and some underground open air festivals. We played in people's living rooms and back yards... Hell, we would play anywhere our backline would fit in... And we still do.

We released a couple of demos, live tapes and did a couple of "official released" CD's like the self titled "The Anacondas" (Sonic Rendezvous-2003) and "Snakin' all Over" (Sonic Rendezvous-2005). Check out the discography section for more.

We all became good friends of eachother and had a great time through the years till all the fun ended in 2005 with the sudden death of our drummer Marzl. Damn, too young, too soon... After Pete, Jack and Johnny crawled up from this knock-out, we realized that we wanted to continue making music. Because we could get along with each other so well both musically and friendship-wise, we decided to go on as a band and found a new drummer in the young and well talented Woody Sticks. Asking Woody to drum for us was somehow a logical step for he already stood in for Marzl once at some rehearsels and a show in Maastricht (Holland), when Messerschmitt injured his arm and wasn't able to play drums for a while some years ago. Woody was his friend and co-worker at the drum store they were working at, and Woody still does... So from now on when we're talking about The Anacondas and "we", this includes Pete, Jack, Johnny and Woody.

Anacondas and devil girls


The Anacondas did a tour through Germany end of 2005 and started gigging around the province of North-Holland recently. Future plans are doing more shows, recordings, merchandise, and anything else which makes it so great to play in a band like this, though we still can't quit our day jobs. Peace goes out to anyone who helped us out and anyone we met on the road in a positive vibe.
The Anacondas are back on the track and you better deal with that.
