Ultra (tape, LeBel Period, 1981)
Ultra was how the Dutch called post-punk and an evening with the same name was organised by Wally van Middendorp (Minny Pops), Rob Scholte and Harold Schellinx (both of The Young Lions) from 29-9-1980 until 18-2-1981. All the concerts where taped and videoed and LeBel Period, the label of Tox Modell released this excellent compilation. It contains already featured bands in this blog, such as Mekanik Kommando, Suspect, Puber Kristus, Young Lions but also Tox Modell, Plus Instruments, Meat, Minion, Vincent 2, Fritura All Stars and many more. A very lively post-punk and experimental compilation. What 'Colonial Vipers' is for Dutch experimental music from the living room, this is the one for the live recordings (and no, I won't put Colonial Vipers here, since you can buy it on CDR from the Trumpett Tapes wesbite, and I recommend it straight away). And I got this indexed version from DMDN/Antenne recordshop. If ever in Tilburg vistit his shop.
