1998. Dan Shandog and Ralph on Fyre, both already busy in their own bands Wendy Bones and Supersonic X, knew from the beginning that their musical interests were pretty much the same. Who else in their rural hometown Balingen in southern Germany was that much interested in all kinds of RocknRoll-Music, especially the raw cuts during the 60s and the 70s. Combined with their distinct interest in early Punkrock the Stereo Satanics went on their way. As there were neither a bassplayer nor a drummer present to join them, Fab, a musical genius, local Underground-Rock-Icon and originally guitar-player and frontman of the infamous and now deceased Lilly Lavelle took over on bass and J. Wilde, parttime DJ, devoted Elvis-Fan and originally bass-player for the Wendy Bones choose his place behind the drums.
So a troublesome threesome with Dan, Ralph and Fab, everyone the creative spirit of his own other band, tightened together by the more restrained and quite J., exploded in a variety of wild Punkrock-Tunes to live out their visions of raw, untamed music, grounded on their rudimentary and old-fashioned roots and spured on by Ralph on Fyres hateful, sad, mean and desperate lyrical insights into the minds of persons you really never want to know.
Just a few months after the first rehearsals, they recorded a four-track demo-tape called Euphoria and started out with a few savage, loud and not much appreciated shows.
1999. As Fab was unsatisfied with his minor part on bass and caught muscular problems after practising 24 hours a day, the first difficulties arose. He joined his third band, the Plane Austers, as a paid guitar-player and from then on couldnt manage neither his timetable nor his uncontrollable temper and was therefore replaced by Basti van de Meijgloeckljes.
2000. In this lineup the band recorded 5 more songs and released two 7s on Out-o-Space Records, one a split with their pals The Hicktown Heroes. As Basti never really integrated in the band and finally stopped to appear, Fab helped out for a few gigs but anyway the band was on the downward spiral. Ralph was more interested in his new band the Cha Cha Guerillas, Dan and J. formed the Demolition Spitfires out of the ashes of the Wendy Bones. The band never ceased to exist but doesnt wrote any new song until
2003, when they caught new fire. Fab was back as a regular and the audiences finally began to dig the Stereo Satanics and their music.
A CD-R, with all songs the band had recorded until then, was produced to satisfy the needs of a new and younger audience that couldnt understand the bands inclination for vinyl. This CD should also symbolize passed and unstable times and a new beginning with more spirit and strength than before. Which doesnt mean they quited playing their old songs. The band just skipped one or two songs in their whole history and infuriated with the new power hailed the early classics on top of the same lungs as the newest, back to the first song they ever wrote: Stay Insane
2004. Locked in the dark, humid and cold vault they call their practise room, new songs broke out en masse as the four-piece again started to rehearse and combine their creativity. The band also started to book gigs on their own and finally in September 2004 recorded 12 new songs for the first full-length album, that came to release on 20th December 2004 on Out-o-Space Records. The title of the album is Pirate Love.

Till today shows were played all over Germany and in Switzerland with bands like Electric Frankenstein, New Bomb Turks, The Briefs, Nine Pound Hammer, Streetwalkin Cheetahs all USA, Mensen Norway, The Riots Netherlands, Peacocks, Hellmute Switzerland and loads of german bands like The Boonaraaas, The Radiation Kings, Uncle Ho, Crosscut, RocknRoll Stormtroopers and the Renderings just to name the most famous ones.
