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 & Thatcher. The CD+DVD presented here takes you back to that time. All tracks of 'En Toen Was Er Niets Meer', their first 7-inch and the selftitled 12-inch are here, as well as rare and unreleased tracks taken from live performances and the cassette 'Levend'.
