Biography, with crucial help from Koos:
Megakronkel began as a duo in 1990. Guitarist Robin van Velzen and bassplayer Jan Folmer (both ex-members of Umberto Di Bosso) enjoyed making music that was playfull and had unexpected changes and breaks, accompanied by a drumcomputer.
In 1993, their debut album 'Megakronkel' is released by the Dutch label Konkurrel. The drumcomputer is replaced by Koos van er Velde, thank dog!
The following year, their second album 'Neurotransmitter' is released.
Megakronkel plays a lot, especially in Germany and Austria.
They tour with Victims Family and in 1994 the group plays at the big Music Festival Pop-Komm in Germany.
At a show in Nürnberg, Robin van Velzen meets the love of his life.
He later moves to Germany for her which will mean the end of Megakronkel.
In 1996, Koos leaves Megakronkel and is replaced by Peter Veenstra.
At this time, Megakronkel course changes.
The complex compositions make way for more improvised playing, which can be heard on the third album 'Microlowmanic'.
This album is the result of jamming for a week, added with vocals and sax.
In 2005, Megakronkel gets together for a one time reunion at a festival in Nürenberg.
About the name Megakronkel, Mega of course means big/huge.
In Dutch language, if someone thinks in a weird way it's said he has a "kronkel in zijn hoofd". A kronkel means curved/zig-zag/twist.
Megakronkel's music is somewhat like this, with unexpected curves and changes. That's how this name was chosen!
