But Alive was a German punk rock band, which was founded in 1992 in Hamburg.
Most of their lyrics were very political.
When they announced their breakup in 1999, because of musical and personal differences, they consisted of the following members:*Marcus Wiebusch (Vocals and Guitar); also in Rantanplan, now in Kettcar*Frank Tirado-Rosales; also now in Kettcar*Hagen van der Viren *Torben Meißner; also in Rantanplan, as wellTheir 1997 album Bis Jetzt Ging Alles Gut was released in North America by the Canadian G7 Welcoming Committee Records.
But Alive's demise, Marcus and Frank started a new band called Kettcar, taking a more mainstream pop music approach.
Since nobody wanted to release their debut album Marcus teamed up with some of his friend to launch the Grand Hotel Van Cleef label, which thus far has been quite a success.
