SEXY BOLLOCKS - What's In A Name EP 1983

In the early punk days a lot of bands (The Kids, Chainsaw, X-Pulsion, Mad Virgins..) belong to the history of Belgium's punk. Most of those bands are quick defunkt and after 1978 there were hardly any more punk releases. In 1980-1981, there were several post-punk records which were interesting and all started as punkbands and remained so in spirit, even when their music changed. But compared to Germany or Holland, punk in Belgium was always less of a phenomena. In the beginning of 1983, the first attempts were made to change this. Punk Etc., the first Belgian punk label was founded. One of these bands, Sexy Bollocks, released this great five song EP. Classic '77 punk rock mixed with a touch of hardcore and the aggressive voice makes this unique EP immortal. Not much info I found in the net but this band fuckin' rules. And with two more songs they are present at the awesome Bloodstains Across Belgium Vol.3 compliation. So listen and feel the anger of this vital short-lived band.
