Repress on black and white splatter vinyl. De Brassers are one of the most notorious bands in the Belgian new wave/punk history. With their no nonsense attitude they scared the shit out of the local catholic community of Hamont. De Brassers were a local mixture of the Sex Pistols (in the lowest gear) and Joy Division (they always performed a cover version of Joy Division's 'Shadowplay'), combining a criticism of bureaucracy and politics with experiences of psychological and existential tensions. The doomed sound they produced tells a lot about the dark atmosphere of the late seventies and early eighties: the fear of atomic bombs, cold war pessimism, police violence against squatters, the first cases of AIDS, and the grim years of Reagan and Thatcher. The 2LP presented here takes you back to that time. All tracks of 'En Toen Was Er Niets Meer,' their first 7" and the selftitled 12" are here, as well as rare and unreleased tracks taken from live performances and the cassette 'Levend.' If you're in for a raw slice of Belgian history let De Brassers emerse you in a cold wave of punk. Comes with double-sided insert.

Also available: 1979-1982 (+DVD) (CD).
