The band was founded as “Peacock” in 1975 by Tommy Betzler and initially toured the extended Rhine-Main area and built up a small but loyal fan base. Recording a demo tape and sending it to the record companies proved unsuccessful. There was a hail of rejections, especially on the grounds that the time of progressive rock is now really over and disco is now all the rage. In short – Peacock decided to disband. But they had done the math without Klaus Schulze…

In order to impress Klaus, it was decided to give a live concert in Darmstadt’s trendy shop “Die Goldenen Krone” so that the master could get a musical impression. To cut a long story short – at the dinner that followed, a record deal was signed and a few days later Peacock were already in the Panne-Paulsen studio in Frankfurt to record their debut album “The Prophet” (1980), produced by Klaus Schulze himself. Here it turned out that there was already a band of the same name, so that they came up with the elegant solution to call themselves P’cock from now on. In 1981 the second P’cock record “In ‘cognito” followed, this time produced directly in Klaus Schulze’s studio in Winsen.

P’cock proved to be one of the most innovative German rock bands beyond the worn-out Krautrock idiom on the threshold of New Wave and the New German Wave, which was still to be taken seriously at the beginning.
