Additional information
from Sibylle Colin-Tocquaine (10.10.2007):

Formed in December 1986 in the South of France in Antibes (06), Witches recorded first demo "Silly Symphony" in March 88. 600 copies were solded.
The second tape "Agressive Soap" (January 89) is also sold out (300 copies).
These two demos were 4 tracks recordings.
After several shows in France and Switzerland, the band moved to Paris in 1991.
"Lost of the Precious" (4 titles tape) was recorded in August that year and distributed by Dutch label Foundation 2000 (500 copies - sold out).
In may 93, the band recorded another tape "Wind of time" (1000 ex.).
As the precedent one, it was recorded in a 16 tracks studio and released with a colored cover.
In May 94, WITCHES recorded 1st album "3.4.1" in German studio called MasterPlan. It was released only on CD for promotion.
After sending it to different labels, the band was signed on Boucherie Productions for the French label Abathrash. The album was out on this label on February 95 and was distributed by PIAS in France and in Belgium.
After a promotional tour (radios, TV : MCM) as well as some shows in Paris (la Locomotive, le Gibus and l'Elysee Montmartre) and in the rest of France (Lille, Tours, Limoges ...etc.), Witches did a "break" and come back now to record a 2nd album...
