Everything Is Shit lp (Sub Rosa Records)


PUNK IN BRUSSELS 1977-79 18 tracks

"An incredible energy took over Brussels at the onset of the '80s. It is a strange and rare feeling when you tell yourself that something is happening. And it always happens through an accumulation of very small facts. Then, suddenly, it is there. This collection basically attempts to capture this emerging will. But before that, there was punk rock. In Brussels, it started with a handful of venues, improvised concerts, a few dozens of people recognizing each other, and a festival that gathered everyone together: the first Belgian Punk Contest, at the Vieux Saint-Job, on March 18, 1978. Although the influences came from up north -- The Sex PistolsThe ClashThe BuzzcocksCrass, essentially -- there were also ties and influences from Paris (Asphalt Jungle,Métal Urbain), and Phallus BandStreets, and H2SO4, who were all also singing in French. The adventure began in the winter of 1976, and the following two years would yield most of the material. Since these bands had very short life-spans, there were a lot of interactions (ChainsawX-Pulsion, Streets), while other configurations gave birth to key bands of the next decade: Digital Dance (out of X-Pulsion and Thrills), Snowy Red (from Chainsaw), The Names (The Passengers), and Pseudocode (from Thrills). Other artists in this collection include: Mad VirginsTerminal StupidIsabelle et les Nics-NacsThe Actors, and Raxola. Features 18 tracks (from the 32-track CD)." -SUB ROSA
