The seminal electro-industrial band was begun by schoolmates André Schmechta and Jorg Bohme (also known as Sevren Ni-Arb and Regan Eracs respectively) in 1987 near Münster, Germany. They were originally called Scarecrow, but after leaving their first label with Talla 2XLC to join his new Zoth Ommog label , the band was renamed X-Marks the Pedwalk (the name coming from a short story by sci-fi/fantasy author Fritz Leiber about a future dystopia where vehicular manslaughter is considered a sport). Over the course of three years they produced three maxi-singles (ARBITRARY EXECUTION, DANGER / DISEASE CONTROL, ABATTOIR) each more successful than the last, before releasing their first album (Freaks) in 1992. Another maxi-single (Cenotaph) and the first European tour followed shortly after.
