German alternative and indie rock band Tocotronic comes from Hamburg and was formed in 1993. The band was founded by drummer Arne Zank and bassist Jan Müller who had previously played in other bands like Punkarsch and Meine Eltern. The twosome was joined by Dirk von Lowtzow who came in Hamburg for studying. He filled the band on the vocals and rhythm guitar. The fourth member is Rick McPhail, he plays lead guitar and keyboard.
