In the late 80s Roberto Gasparini did a few zines; one was with his mate Kurt Van Asselberghs (both from Rotselaar). Later they ended up in this band: Roberto did bass/vocals, Kurt guitar/vocals. Kurt De Bont (from Haacht) played drums and sang.
A bit later Gert Goris joined to do vocals. In ’98 came the 7” (Six Songs To Die For: released by Funtime recs, Kurt DB’s own Hageland Strikes Back and Tim Leten’s Filth-Ear distribution). They also released a split-CD with the ‘End of Ernie’ in ’99 (Kurt VA says it was ’97). Both were recorded at Studio 195. The split-CD was just with Kurt VA on guitar – Philippe Anthonis joined later.
My review in Tilt! #9: >>Midtempo melodic punkrock with sneering vocals (the singing hints to the ‘Buzzcocks’). Recorded on a 4-track so don’t expect anything super-smooth. Hey this is DIY! The sociocritical lyrics are quite understandable. Simple but honest.<<
