8/10 Ian Staff review, 09 January 2014

Those lovely fellows at LTM Records have re-released this 1981 compilation (originally on Sandwich Records) of Belgian new wave, electronic and industrial tracks, a double album full to the brim with dark synth and industrial clattering from acts like Front 242, Polyphonic Size and Isolation Ward, now with an extra 10 tracks from a further 2 more years of releases than the original album.

This is the true sound of the Belgian underground, from the minimal clank of Prothese’s ‘Tumeurs’ and the punk disco of Rel Rex’s ‘Programmed’ onto the Joy Division-a-like ‘Dans Les Profondeurs’ by Satin Wall, this is a pretty varied mix of sounds but with the same running theme, one of dark underground Belgian nightclubs and a sound that no doubt went on to influence the whole Sheffield electronic scene of the early eighties, giving birth to bands like The Human League, Heaven 17 and Cabaret Voltaire.
