The "drowning roses" was a german punk band which arose out of the ashes of the Neurotic Arseholes and was founded by their bass player around 1987. The band started with the release of their first EP "Aus Forschung und Technik" which was still very 80s punk like. The band toured throughout Europe together with NOFX in 1988. A highly wanted Split 7inch left from this tour. The band relased two more LPs in 1988 and 1989 and started to play a more hardcore but still melodic style mostly with english lyrics.
