Alarm! Alarm! (2002)
Liquido was a German alternative rock band formed in Sinsheim, Germany in 1996 by four friends: Wolle Maier (drums), Wolfgang Schrödl (vocals, guitar, piano), Stefan Schulte-Holthaus (bass) and Tim Eiermann (vocals, guitar).
Their only notable international hit, "Narcotic", was first released on a demo in 1996 and sold over 700,000 units when Virgin Records re-released it in 1998. Since then, Liquido hasn’t been able to repeat this success, which led to a split from Virgin after two unsuccessful albums. 2005 saw the release of an equally ill-fated album on the new label Nuclear Blast.
Nonetheless, Liquido gained somewhat of a cult following in their homeland. For example, "Narcotic" was elected "second best song of all time" by a local German radio station (the best song being "Stairway to Heaven" by Led Zeppelin). In 2008, the band released a single called "Gameboy". In January 2009, the members of Liquido announced the breakup of the band on their official website.
Narcotic is the official anthem of the soccer clubs Girondins de Bordeaux in France and UFC Eferding in Upper Austria.
