V/A Ook Dit Is Belgisch 2 Tape

Already posted the first one, here's the second volume and I guess last one. Another snapshot of the late 80's HC/punk scene in Belgium. Quite a variety on different styles here.
Side A starts with M.A.D., with tracks taken from the demo tape I posted a while ago. Sounds quite muddy as the tape is a bit worn.
Next one is Funeral Dress when they were still a small band. They're quite known these days but I'll admit I'm not a big fan. Here they offer the 2 tracks from their debut 7" and an extra one. They even ended up on the Killed By Death 6 album. What a big mistake as the 7" was released in 1987!
Next are Mental Disturbance, crossover/HC band from Brussels.
Legal Suffering follows with 3 tracks of their demo tape (which I unfortunately don't have). As they were from Bruges, I knew these guys very well. These are songs from the 1st line-up. Legal Suffering would resurrect with only the drummer as original member and Mario "Marbels", ex-drummer for No Debt on guitar. The original vocalist sadly crashed with his motorcycle in the late 80's. Mario committed suicide in 2003.
Next one is Anti Dote, a speedmetal band from Bruges.
Chronic Death was a weird noisecore band. Later changed their name to Coda.
Side B starts with Cold Turkey. Don't have any info on them.
Vortex is next, wellknown veteran punkband.
Know absolutely nothing of Vladimir Et Les Aerosols. From Brussels?
My own band Chronic Disease follows with 4 short live tracks, early style.
Exhaustless Revolt was a political HC band from around Antwerp.
Capital Scum closes the tape with 3 tracks, of which the last one is called 'Michael Klakson' for some reason.

90 mins. tape split in 2 files.

The Shaved Pigs - Breakfast Is Served LP

Sorry for the long wait but I had some PC issues.
Haven't seen the debut album of NY's The Shaved Pigs on any blog yet. It's been requested on Down Underground a while ago where you can find their 2nd album 'Cheers'.
The Shaved Pigs remind me of some goofy version of the Dead Kennedy's. Some lyrics are a bit more serious though.
The Shaved Pigs' 1st release was a 3-track 7" in 1986. Quite rare. It has the song 'Dying In The Year 2000' which was re-recorded for this album. Don't know the other 2 tracks so maybe these can be found here as well.
After 'Cheers' follows the last release, the 'Big Brass Knuck' 7" on Vital Music in 1992.
'Breakfast Is Served' was also released in Holland on Shadowline (in a normal sleeve). My copy is the US version on Porcine in a gatefold sleeve.
'Slam' is their own version of The Isley Brothers song 'Shout'. Produced by Kramer (Shimmy Disc Records).
