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 were refusals, mainly on the grounds that the time of progressive rock was really over and disco was all the rage. In short – Peacock decided to disband. But then they reckoned without Klaus Schulze... In order to impress Klaus, it was decided to give a live concert in the Darmstadt trendy store "Die Goldenen Krone" so that the master could get a musical impression. To cut a long story short – a record deal was signed at the dinner that followed, 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 with the same name, so that the elegant solution was to call themselves P'cock from now on. The second P'cock record "In 'cognito" followed in 1981, 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 Neue Deutsche Welle, which was initially to be taken seriously.
