3 piece combo (drums, upright bass and guitar) re-animates rock
in a what-the-hell- we-can-always-
fashion. In opposition to other
current bands (we will not name anybody here, those bands all have
their places - in HISTORY!) that are missing balls,
who hold their guitars like girls do and who that take themselves
too seriously, 200t have balls and donīt take themselves
seriously enough. Didnīt they even break
up again recently? Despite everything else mentioned big industrial
steel crushing machine balls 200t

Berlin, with slightly different line up: There was no more guitar, there was

by very special guest from Gdansk W.T. Norbert "T-Kowski". He
added classic organ, 70's synth and also bird sounds.

classy, stripped down and timeless rock experience featuring very
special international surprise guests.
