various - B9: Belgian Cold Wave 1979-1983
Timely, expanded and remastered reissue of Sandwich Records' definitive early Belgian Cold Wave round-up 1979-1983, now bulked up with 10 bonus tracks including highly sought-after exclusives by Front 242 and The Neon Judgement. 'B9' perfectly exemplifies what a nebulous term 'New Wave' was, covering a spectrum of odd pop, dance music and industrial experiments that broke tradition from what came before them. The original, ten-track LP includes some total diamonds, scoping out the loping pop of Kid Montana's 'Cabs Ambush' beside the cute instrumental machine ditty of Tristes Tropiques' 'Untitled #1', the noxious, discordant industrial chug of Prothese's 'Tumeurs' and Alain Neffe & co's bleakly atmospheric Pseudo Code beauty, 'Around Midnight', among others from Rel Rex, Digital Dance and Polyphonic Size. A second LP yields further treasures, including the darkwave swagger of The Neon Judgement's 'Factory Walk' and The Names' deeply charming 'Spectators' and a first-ever vinyl appearance of the instrumental for Front 242's 'Principles' from their debut single.
