Band Bio


While the history of CHARING CROSS goes back into the late eighties, the actual beginning of the band as we know them today, dates back to 1993, when Pascal Zwyssig, the longest member of the current line up, joined the group. During the following years, the history of the Swiss outfit was marked by many line-up changes. During all this time, the band played numerous concerts (club shows, festivals, Ice Hockey World Championship 09) with some renowned acts such as NAZARETH, SUZIE QUATTRO and SOUL SIRKUS, recorded 4 demos and one EP, until at last in 2016 the current line-up was completed. Peter Hochuli, singer and front man of CHARING CROSS, ensnares the audience with his performance and stage presence. The guitar section, consisting of Pascal Zwyssig and Andy Dormann, convinces with their powerful rhythm sound and virtuous solos. Marcel Spiga (drums) and Markus Flury (bass) ensure the matching driving groove, which creates the rhythm fundament of CHARING CROSS.

„We are… CHARING CROSS“ – was the name for CHARING CROSS’ first full length album which was produced and mixed by the band itself. It was followed 2013 with their second Album Sinspiration, which had been mastered by Dave Collins (Black Sabbath, Mötley Crüe…) Now the story will be continued with the third album “PAIN & GAIN”.
