Eastern European 80's music via Belgium
Late 1980's was prime time for the bands of Eastern Europe to get their recordings put out on Western European labels. AON, Old Europe Cafe and this Corrosivre release. Music so evocative, powerful, counter-communist, well developed and realized. It was a big deal in these times before the wall came down to have a taste of what we didn't know a thing about. As hungry as people there were for western music, we were for theirs. Even without this background these recordings are great stuff, but considering the conditions of the time adds a mystical allure.
