Disgorge - Big Trouble Bachten De Kupe MC

A few bands use Disgorge as bandname but this one is the Belgian one. Maybe some will know them from a split 7" with Agathocles released in the late 80's.
Disgorge started somewhere mid-80's in Veurne, close to the French border and the sea. The area is known as 'Bachten De Kupe' as it lays behind the Yser, a small river that played an important role in the 1st World War.
The later Disgorge sounded pretty grindy with a drummer that really didn't have a problem playing blast beats. He even played once with my old band when our drummer was forced to leave by his parents. Total improvisation and way too fast! But a cool guy nevertheless. They did a 2nd demo "New Wave Sucks" but here is the more hardcore-sounding 1st tape of them released in 1986. Some people think of Zyklome A when listening to this.
It seems that they got some problems with the local new wave folks who laughed at them so hence the title of the song and 2nd demo.
Don't know what happened to them later but I heard a rumour that one of them is a cop now.
