Struggler - It Was A Very Long Conversation But At The End We Didn't Shake Hands LP


Requested by Noinim a while ago. Here's the sole full length of Struggler. Released on Not So Brave in 1982, this record contains slow to uptempo tracks with a load of diversity. Most songs are quite monotonous without being boring.
Recently found out a new and promising blog called No Longer Forgotten Music. There you can find both Struggler 7"s. These are very rare and sound more punky. Check this blog for more interesting music.

It Was A Very Long Conversation But At The End We Didn't Shake Hands LP (Not So Brave-NSB 002-1982)
1. Is It Worth ?
2. The Perfect End II
3. Persecute
4. Infinite
5. Where Are We Now ?
6. The Past Won't Burn
7. The Perfect End I
8. Obligation
9. Noise, What Noise ?
10. Emptiness

I saw these guys live once together with Siglo XX, Red Zebra, De Brassers and Cultural Decay.That was the best concert (apart from Killing Joke and Cramps) I've ever seen.The room where they gigged was ever so dark and so were the visitors.I guess a Joy Division concert would have been the same.Thanks for this great underestimated record.The Perfect End!!

Must have been a great gig Beathoven. The line-up is the cream of the crop of the Belgian cold wave bands. I was just a few years too young to see all those bands.
Did see Killing Joke the 1st time at Seaside Fest.
