NIGGLER - Haarlem (Noord-Holland, NL) 1982 - 1984



BIOGRAPHY:
NIGGLER was formed by brothers Arnold and Wim Smits (both on guitar) and Rick Treffers (vocals). Bassist Ernst van Baak and drummer Simon Demper joined the band not long after. But soon Rick Treffers left the band and was replaced by David Baron. Shortly after their first gig, Simon Demper was replaced by Ronald Krom. For the people who love line-up changes, I've got great news, because Rick Treffers came back again in NIGGLER and replaced David. With this line-up, the band did another gig. Guitarist Wim wanted to play bass again, so Ernst left the band. NIGGLER continued under the name of ELIXIR for a while and disbanded in 1986.
