Postmen

Postmen was/Postman is a reggae/hip hop band from the Netherlands.

The group was founded by The Anonymous Mis and G-Boah in 1993. They were influenced by Kool G Rap, Eric B & Rakim, Burning Spear and Bob Marley. On the road, Postmen play with a live band and have appeared on some the largest festivals in Europe.

Just before their debut LP "Documents", Rollarocka joins the band and a string of hit singles follow. Within Europe they got to be rather popular, particularly in their home country of the Netherlands, scoring top 40 hits with the songs: 'Cocktail', 'Crisis' and 'U Wait' amongst others. They get regular radio-airplay (particularly during the summer season) although their second and third albums ("Revival" and "Era") didn't match these successes.

Postmen split in 2005 because the three members had drifted apart. Anonymous Mis continued as Postman and released his solo-album "Green" in 2006. The lead single features Janis Joplin-style vocals from his award-winning rockstar-wife Anouk. They spent a year in Ohio with their three children to escape the pressures of fame, but eventually settled in Amsterdam. In May 2008 the couple announced their break-up.
