About Anchor

The story about Rough Ends Down…

The band was founded in 2014 by Marcel Ruf (guitar), Peter End (bass) and Luigi Personeni (drums). Up to now, the band only plays original compositions covering various styles. Initially, most of the songs were written by Marcel Ruf, but now all musicians contribute to compositions and their arrangements.

The somewhat unusual name of the band goes back to a pun in English and for us means something like …cutting off old pigtails…. so a new musical start for each of us.

We would like to thank Deborah Maniglio, Roberto Pallastrelli and Andrea Hersperger (all vocals) as well as Birk Poller (guitar) and Stefan Oehen (sax & harp) who have supported us on our journey in recent years.
