In 1989 and just one week before the band was about to enter the studio for the first time, their guitarist left. But against all odds, his replacement, Dimitris Papalakis, was proven a decisive factor in the evolution of the band's music. His charismatic albeit unconventional playing and ideas, gave Ding An Sich their own personal sound. This same year the band releases the first 7" single "And.../Wandering" on their own label. Vaggelis Bekonopoulos (keyboards) joined Ding An Sich in 1990, thus enriching their sound. For the next 3 years the band spent most time in rehearsing & recording. And occasionally making a live appearance, of which the most notable being the ones with Paul Roland (1991) and The Damned (1992). In 1992 Dimitris Papalakis decided to leave the band and was replaced by Tasos Nomikos (guitarist of the "BrainDead"). Further recordings took place and although there was enough material for the release of 2 albums, circumstances didn't allow the materialization of any of these, as the band wanted to act with as much independence as possible.
The year 1993 proved to be a landmark in the band's history, as it signalled radical changes both in the line-up and expression of musical form.
But this is another story altogether.
