Dutch Punk - Ninth Post (Svatsox)
When back in the days I bought the Svatsox 7" I posted earlier I though they sounded a bit too much like The Ex, which were my favorites. I never heard their records, which came after that, and now I regret that I didn't get those. 'Ruins' is still very much like early Ex stuff, but the second one is a really mature punk/post punk record, which sees them moving away from the cliche of punk. This post contains both these records. In the 'Ruins' zip you will also find demo recordings from july 1980, very very kindly donated by Niels of the famous Eet U Smakelijk blog. Svatsox later became De Kift, with on drums Wim, who played previously with Rondos. They still perform live and release records.
