Ulli Bomans aka SCHIERES grew up in Landau. In 1990 he started to use his home-computer with a cheap 4-track software in order to produce his first electro-tracks.

Influenced by EBM, Dark-Wave and Industrial he founded his first band CRUDE SLOPE two years later. Together with Gerhard Lallmann and Andi Kuntz he produced music that combined these three directions.
