Violent Mosquitos - Leads To Disaster Tape

Violent Mosquitos were from Aalst and were around from 1986 till the early 90's.
I've seen the band multiple times as they were from the same city where Smurfpunx did their gigs at Netwerk. When a band cancelled, they were asked to play.
The 'Leads To Disaster' demo is probably from their formative years as it doesn't sound as tight as their live gigs. The songs sound unfinished and sometimes they play out of sync.
Violent Mosquitos released a 7" called 'World's Already Dead' in 1988. Never heard it I must admit.
Bassplayer Frank and guitarplayer JC formed the Pitbull Boys after Violent Mosquitos ended.
Some songs are fun songs which is no surprise being from Aalst, THE carnival city of Belgium.
Track 9 is a thrash version of the CCR song.

MBP / Ampachen - Split Tape

MBP and Ampachen were both from Groningen and shared one member Onno.
MBP play fast HC but don't expect thrash. It seems that they started more in the Flipper vein. Great stuff. A total of 21 tracks, recorded at a rehearsal and live.
Ampachen existed for 2 months before recording their tracks. They aren't as fast as MBP and their sound borders on indie sometimes. Not too impressed by them. 13 tracks which is quite impressive for a band that was only 2 months old.
Don't expect muddy recordings here. Quality is pretty good.
Tape was released in 1986.

The Dirty Dogs - Demos

The Dirty Dogs were from Malaysia and together with The Bollocks and Opposition Party one of the more wellknown. Probably still obscure for most of you.
This tape was released in Bulgaria on AON Productions and compiles the 1st two demo tapes that The Dirty Dogs recorded.
The Dirty Dogs were active in the mid- till late 90's. I always read that they have a crusty D-beat sound but you can't hear that on the demos. Maybe they changed their sound later on? On the demos they sound quite punk with a bit of HC in it. It's no groundbreaking stuff but I think it's always cool to dig up obscure and 'exotic' punk.
First 5 tracks are the 'In Death Row' demo recorded in 1994. The other 4 tracks are the 'The Dirty Dog' demo recorded in 1995.

1. I'm Politician
2. You Born Bastard
3. Take It Easy
4. Behavior
5. Rich But Poor
6. The Dirty Dogs
7. City Breath
8. War
9. Sleave Buster
