Artist: DE BRASSERS
Title: 1979-1982
Format: CD & DVD
Label: Onderstroom
Country: Belgium
Price: $31.00
"2010 release. De Brassers are one of the most notorious bands in 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 Divisions "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 70s and early 80s: the fear of atomic bombs, Cold War pessimism, police violence against squatters, the first cases of AIDS, and the grim years of Reagan & Thatcher. The CD and DVD presented here take you back to that time. All tracks from En Toen Was Er Niets Meer, their first 7", and the self-titled 12" are here, as well as rare and unreleased tracks taken from live performances and the cassette Levend. If youre in for a raw slice of Belgian history, let De Brassers immerse you in a cold wave of punk. This release also contains a documentary about De Brassers. Shot in black and white, plus color by Chromasoom (Jan Weynants). Over 50 minutes of live footage and a great amount of interviews with (ex-) band members and other people who were involved. English subtitles included." - Onderstroom.

Artist: DE BRASSERS
Title: Live at Doornroosje
Format: LP
Label: Onderstroom
Country: Belgium
Price: $24.00
"Recordings of a stand-out gig at Doornroosje in Nijmegen (NL). By 1982, De Brassers had been playing in almost every small public space or squad in the area and logically they had gathered a cult following. Doornroosje was/is the club where underground music groups performed before they became well-known, especially in the 80s, which were an interesting period with Joy Division, Nick Cave, and many local punk/new wave bands hitting the stage. Here we find De Brassers at the peak of their powers performing "Pijn," "They Wanted Us Away," "En Toen Was Er Niets Meer," the Joy Division cover "Shadowplay" and six other raw punk/synth/wave tracks. Live, they sound even more real and raw. De Brassers are one of the most notorious bands in 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, combining a criticism of bureaucracy and politics with experiences of psychological and existential tensions.

Pressed at Handle With Care and housed in a matte-varnished cover sleeve. Mastered by Anders Peterson. Edition of 300 copies."- Onderstroom.
