Distress - Demo 1988

I know there's a lot of bands called Distress, but this one is a Belgian HC band from the late 80's.
Don't know a lot about them and I think I never seen 'em live. Guess they played more locally, in the Mol-Geel area. They thank Jakke (then bassplayer of Agathocles, later of The Sexmachines and now in Creature With The Atom Brain) and D.B.C. which stands for Danish Butter Cookies, another HC band from that area.
The tape states 14 tracks, but there's only 12.
Any more info welcome.

1. Intro
2. Religious Suckers
3. Bothered
4. Born To Loose
5. Fuck Reality
6. Had A Tough Day
7. Arseholes
8. Usher
9. Nuclear Nightmare
10. No Solution
11. Hooligans
12. Evil Death

Deviant Gedrag - Yeah Really Demo 1986

Let's get back to Belgium to post some demo tapes of 80's HC/punk bands.
Here's the one and only demo tape of Deviant Gedrag (Deviant Behaviour) from Wambeek. Their style goes way back to the early punk sound, contrary to the more prevalent HC sound in the mid-80's. Great midtempo punk and strong song material. Recording quality is pretty good as well.
Drummer Dirk now plays in poprockband De Mens.

1. What's Reality
2. Fear
3. War
4. Tell Me
5. Fascist Cops
6. Brainless
7. Problems
8. I Hate Religion

The Scuzz - Liability 7"

Cool HC punk 7" from this Wisconsin band. Pretty unknown and not that easy to find these days.
'Liability' was released in 1998 on Asinine Records, the label of Asinine Solution. Asinine Solution is better known due to a 7" released on Beer City. Their other 2 7"s were released on Asinine Records of which the 1st is impossible to find. Only 200 copies. So if anyone could find the 'Your Wisconsin Friends' 7", please let me know. Btw, I have a demo/live tape with older stuff of them. Will try to rip and post it later.
Off to The Scuzz. 8 tracks of late 90's HC punk similar to all those Beer City bands from that time.

1. Liability
2. Socially Excepted
3. Dying On The Cross
4. Catheter
5. Drunk As Fuck
6. Democracy Hypocrisy
7. Badge Of Authority
8. All For Confrontation
