The quartet comprises brothers Markus and Micha Acher (on vocals/acoustic guitar and bass, respectively) plus programmer/key pad participant Martin Gretschmann and drummer Martin Messerschmid.

The music group then obtained an American distribution cope with No Hour, and after 12 was reissued, 4th recording Shrink — nearly entirely abstract digital in character — made an appearance in 1998. Neon Golden (2002) as well as the Devil, You + Me (2008) had been both song-oriented in character, albeit with consumer electronics continuing to try out a significant part within the band’s materials. In 2013, the music group resurfaced using the solitary “Near to the Cup.” The recording of the same name, which boasted a number of the Notwist’s most available songwriting and experimental instrumentation, found its way to early 2014. Later on that yr, the band released The Messier Items, a assortment of instrumental songs written within the years between your Devil, You + Me and Near to the Cup. The live recording Superheroes, Ghostvillains & Stuff made an appearance in 2016, taking the second from the band’s three consecutive sold-out displays in Leipzig, Germany in past due 2015.
