In late 2003, guitarist Maurice Lohschelder has a serious accident at his day job, breaking his spine. The recovery takes more than one and a half years. Alex Roelofs, guitar player for Snatch, takes over the lead for Maurice. During this time, the band also performs twice on primetime Dutch radio 3FM (during Nachtmiss Marisa and Giel Beelen’s breakfast show) and on other local radio stations. The gigs continue, and Fake No More ‘accidentally’ takes part in hollands largest coverband competition, the ” Clash of the Coverbands”.
After winning several rounds, the bands ends up in the final in Paradiso, Amsterdam.
‘The finals were absolutely stunning. The audience was fantastic, as well as the sound and lightshow. It was absolute magic we made that night, especially while Faith No More played there years ago themselves. Really awesome!’ Taken from: www.xtrememusic.org .
That night, the jury are impressed by the energy of the performance by Fake No More. They are voted the winners of The Clash of the Cover Bands 2004.
The following years, the band is found on several stages in the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany.
The livereputation the band builds up result in a tour in the United Kingdom in july 2008.

such as Epic, Midlife Crisis and Easy, as well as songs
well known by die hard fans, but never experienced live!”
