V/A - No Big Business LP


As requested, here's the No Big Business LP. A bit more all over the place musicwise than the 2nd volume posted by Soundhead a while ago. Artwork is printed on the plastic outer bag.
This is the second release on Kleo Records which was the label that changed it's name to the more wellknown Antler Records.
The Scabs were strongly influenced by The Clash in their early days. They got more successful in the late 80's playing more mainstream (boring) rock.
Neue Sachlichkeit also released a 7" on Kleo Records, which is actually the 1st Antler release as well.
Cinema Rasch is the only Dutch band here. No further info to be found.
Siglo XX appear with a re-recorded track from their tape.
A Blaze Colour is Ludo Camberlin and brings a nice instrumental synth piece. More of A Blaze Colour can be found on No Longer Forgotten Music here and here.
De Minz: track recorded live in the studio. Another band I don't have any info of. Had Kloot Per W in the line-up who was also in Polyphonic Size.
The same for The Motives. Only appeared on compilations like the 2nd one on Kleo 'Fons Vermist In Bergbos'.
Suspects were friends of Struggler and released a very rare 7" on Struggler's Doggy Doo label as well. Would like to hear it.
Fizik is poppy wave and had two 7"s released back in the day of which the 1st one on Kleo as well. Their sound didn't age too well.
An early track of Luc Van Acker wellknown with his many collaborations. Shock poet Didi De Paris recites the 'Our Father' over and over again. Gets a bit tedious after a while.
Spermicide were a punk band from Brussels. Did a 7" back in the day with the tracks Belgique and Femme Prothèse. Some members later in Neo Arya.
The Underdogs were a punk band from Bruges. They recorded 2 tracks here but both can be found on their demotape as well.

This is so crazy. I was playing in one of the bands on this album (The Motives), but I don't have it in a digital format, so now, some 30 years later, I'm downloading my own music... :-) Thanks !

BTW, The Motives have stopped in 1982. There is 1 more release than those already mentioned here. So the complete list is:
- Single: Mr President/Black Wires
- No Big Buseness compilation: Plastic
- Fons Vermist In Bergbos compilation: Whatever
- Easter Rising compilation: Saturdaynight Soldier

Curious Guy said...

Hallo anon, heb niets meer van The Motives.
Die 'Easter Rising' ken ik van naam en heb ik al es gezien. Van die 'Fons Vermist In Bergbos' is niets te vinden. Welke bands staan daar nog op?
Grtz, CG.

Ik heb juist de 12inch van Kebab gekocht. Hasselts punk/wavegroepje uit 82. De moeite. Stonden op een andere No big Business.

Merci voor de blog!

de verbaasde kabouter said...

Curieuzeneus, heb jij ook de andere NBB-verzamelaar?

Curious Guy said...

Sorry heb ik niet en ik zie dat de link op Soundhead er niet meer is. Ik kan es kijken of ik die MP3's snel vind, en hier een link posten als dat goed is.

OMER from Bruges said...

Was regelmatig stand-inn als drummer bij The Underdogs.
Is er iemand die nog opnames heeft ( casettes of digitaal ) van optredens van The Underdogs?
Thx OMER

Curious Guy said...

Hey Omer,
heb ergens de Underdogs demo tape op cassette. Geïnteresseerd? Moest je invallen voor den Drak'n? Heb hem nog vaag gekend. Behoorlijk aggressief persoon. Was een maat van m'n nonkel (Sluffer RIP). De Tit'n heb ik al al lang niet meer gezien.

Any chance of a re-upload on this one? I was looking for the track FISK by A Blaze Colour in particular- also trying to track down the None Night Of Flexipop Vol. 6 that has the track Means To An End by A Blaze Colour as well. The rest has already been posted online, but these 2 tracks elude me.

Curious Guy said...

New link, Sheerinertia. Enjoy!
