Coïtus Int. - Sex For The Wealthy MLP
Another excellent postpunk release from The Netherlands. Coïtus Int. Started in the late 70's and their first release from 1980 is the 'Dead Excitement' 7" which is full on punk. you can get that one on No Longer Forgotten Music with some other Dutch punk records.
In 1981 their self-titled debut album showed a different sound. More influenced by Joy Division. Read about it on Life On The Dot where you can download the album as well.
'Sex For The Wealthy' follows in the same style and was released in 1985 according to Discogs but my record doesn't mention a year of release. I really don't know if this is their second album as there is another one 'How To Make Love And Babies'. I searched for more info and some site states 1983, another 1991 as year of release.
Anyway, enjoy Coïtus Int., a band forgotten by many which shouldn't be.
