Smogus was founded in 1995 by Jaap, Ruben, Daniel and Jeroen. During the recording of their debut album Everybody’s Fucked Up Twice the four school friends met with Arno and Wiebe. The six of them hit it off immediately and very soon both Arno and Wiebe decided to complete the band’s line-up. They released two tracks on a split EP on vinyl on the WOTNXT label. In 2002, the band signed a deal with BMG and released a 6-track EP. They then released No Matter What The Outcome on The Electric Co., a Dutch label focused on Dutch talent and linked to Universal Music.
