BETONFRAKTION will pour it's concrete wherever possible.
In 2012 the first tour abroad took place. We played squats
in Germany.

October 15, 2011, saw
the first full-blown
album by the band!
On vinyl: big, round,
black. It's called
'Snake Nation Cropduster'.

Some history.
Once upon a spring, in the quiet village of X-burg, three people
were drawn to each other in their quest for, well... anything really. BETONFRAKTION comes into existence.
   
  Initiator of BETONFRAKTION is Nick J. Swarth. The former city poet
of X-burg, his hometown, considers language as a limited way of expressing thoughts, feelings, whatever. Therefore,
he often seeks the company of musicians, artists, dancers and
videoproducers. For BETONFRAKTION he teams up with composer
and guitarist Frank Crijns. Crijns is a member of Blast, a band
known for its radical
approach. As a
composer he writes
pieces for orchestr's
and ensembles.
Dritter im Bunde is
drummer Provocase.
He joined us in January 2015.
Before Provocase there was Marzj - 2009-2014. Marzj replaced
Ries Doms, who started out with the band in the spring of 2008 and
stayed with BETONFRAKTION for one year and two gigs.
