The group saw the light of day in and about 1994, and was first baptised as “Janes Detd.” (a name they found in an short film from the DDR about a girl that gets an overdose)
After a noteworthy performance on the skate-stage at the Pukkelpop-festival (later on the day Dog Eat Dog would devote their “No Fronts” to the band because they “were impressed by so much positive energy so early in the morning”). They toured as an opener for a number of bands (Heideroosjes, Samiam, NOFX, Descendents, Undeclinable Ambuscade …

1998 meant the breakthrough for Janes Detd.: the song “Beaver Fever” did become a radio hit on the alternative radio in Belgium. The first full-CD “Bleenies & Blockheads” did leave some room for variation, with tracks ranging from college rock songs to skatecore, from catchy punk to up-tempo ska and surf, and with lyrics that had sick bikini-girls en skateboards as themes. With this album, the band got a rather fanatic following, that helped the band to a place at the Beach Rock festival as “Belgian peoples choice”. On that day, they caused a small-scale incident by inviting their fans on the stage (a regular feature of their show) and the subsequent storming of the stage by some 300 of them.

The comparisons as they would be the Belgian version of Green Day or Offspring were everywhere. Jacky Huys for instance wrote “Janes Detd “Bleenies and Blockheads” so exuberant, energetic and powerpoppy (Green Day meets Ramones), winking to Thin Lizzy, The Knack, Beach Boys e tutti quanti, that we gladly forgive them the fact that they play the same song twelve times in a row” Or as their bio said at the time “Although these weirdos have that nerdy, loser kinda look, its precisely that what makes ’em likeable. At first sight they might just be like the kids in your class, bet lemme tell ya, these guys’ll blow you away. They’re the first band that has the guts to combine raw punkrock power with ABBA hooks. Imagine Green Day vocals with MC5 guitars and a Hardcore attitude to top it all off, well you’re in the right direction.” Their live-reputation earned them the title “most booked band” in 1998. They also toured abroad a bit in small clubs in Germany, Poland, Austria and Switzerland.
