1 - BRASSERS, DE - 1979-1982 - (C+D) 
ONDERSTROOM


Well this is some rare & weird stuff. New wave / Punk music, carried by a throbbing bass screaching guitars, a threatening korg & a great deal of desperate singing. Very proud to announce the definite compilation by the "mean & moody chaps" De Brassers. 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 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 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 & Thatcher.The CD+DVD presented here takes you back to that time. All tracks of "En Toen Was Er Niets Meer" their first 7? & the selftitled 12? are here, as well as rare & unreleased tracks taken from live performances & the cassette "Levend". If youre in for a raw slice of Belgian history let de Brassers emerse you in a cold wave of punk.DVDAdditionally to the compilation this release contains a documentary about De Brassers. Shot in black & white + colour by Chromasoom (Jan Weynants). +50 minutes of live footage and a great amount of interviews with (ex-) band members and people who were involved. English subtitles included

2 - BRASSERS, DE - LIVE AT DOORNROOSJE - (LP) 
ONDERSTROOM


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. Sporadicly they also performed in The Netherlands. Doornroosje was / is the club where underground music groups performed before they became well-known, especially the 80s 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 their peak of their powers performing "Pijn", "They Wanted Us Away", "En Toen Was Er Niets Meer", the Joy Division cover "Shadowplay" and 6 other raw punk / synth / wave tracks. Live they sound even more real and raw! 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 Divisions Shadowplay), combining a criticism of bureaucracy and politics with experiences of psychological and existential tensions.
