The P.O.X. was founded 1982 in Hanover (Germany) by the singer and guitarist Beaker Pox and the drummer Slin Pox and thus belongs to the first wave of Psychobilly Bands.
In 1983 the guitarist and songwriter Carl Pox completed the final band formation. The P.O.X.. was the first German Psychobilly band at all.
1984 it came to a record deal with the label Wahnsinn Records (Hamburg) and thus to the first vinyl record release of a German Psychobilly band, the mini LP It's so dark.
International concerts and the next album release Voodoo Power on the Dutch KIX4U-label followed.
