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.
