In the end of the 80s, Ivan and Andria started to play in band called "Taffo", with a guitarist called Wander Taffo, who was previously a member of "Tutti Frutti". With the band Taffo, they released one album called "Rosa Branca" in 1990. Wander Taffo was the guitar teacher of Eduardo Ardanuy, and with the fall of the Taffo band (for unknown reasons, the brothers left the band and Wander Taffo was to release one another album with Taffo name), Ivan and Andria plus Eduardo Ardanuy started a new band and named it "Dr. Sin".
In 1993, they played at the Hollywood Rock Festival, where they shared the stage with Nirvana and L7. They played with Ian Gillan, too. In this same year, the Warner Music International released the first album (Dr. Sin) in 9 countries, produced by Stephan Galfas.
