De Div - Open Zee (12", Plexus, 1983)
De Div came from Delft, The Netherlands and had quite a solid live reputation, although I never saw them play live. In the early days, they sang in dutch. De Div consisted of Art Zaaijer (sax, vocals) Marc de Reus (bass), Michel Schoots (drums), Niek van Slobbe http://www.blogger.com/img/gl.link.gif(guitar, synth). Started in 1979, released 'Stap Voor Stap' in 1981. Their sound is funky, not unlike Gang Of Four. They then released 'Europa Is Hier' (LP), 'Pasodoble' (cassette, will follow soon). This 'Open Zee' was produced by Jean Marie Aerts of TC Matic. The band will later on sing in english and stop in 1990.
