Phorceps started in 2007 when Pumuky and Kayser, guitar and bass respectively, recruit to the drums Fernan and create Broken Kondom. Chechu would take over the other guitar and Boron’s voice to complete the quintet shortly after. A few weeks later Chechu gets into the car of Beethoven R. and leaves the combo, being replaced by the Hispanic-German Lolo, with the band already like Phorceps.
They give their first concerts in the city of Madrid, supporting bands like Sibila and Nazca, with good reception by the public. In February 2009 Lolo leaves the band and David Yáñez happens to be the new guitarist. It is at this stage when you begin to make the first songs of your own.
Finally, one of the founding members, Pumuky, is replaced by Lasso, to immediately begin recording the first demo of the band, an EP titled “Fog”, self-produced, recorded in the premises 39 RED, mixed and mastered in Bezarel Study. A recording of which are edited 300 copies, being sold all in a few months.
