An incredible energy took over Brussels at the onset of the Eighties. It is a strange and rare feeling when you tell yourself that something is happening. And it always happens through an accumulation of very small facts. Then, suddenly, it is there. This collection basically attempts to capture this emerging will. But before that, there was punk rock.

In Brussels, it was a handful of venues, improvised concerts, a few dozens of people recognizing each other, and a festival that gathers everyone: the First Belgian Punk Contest, at the Vieux Saint-Job, on 18 March 1978. 
Although the influence is coming from up north - The Sex Pistols, The Clash, The Buzzcocks, Crass, essentially - there are also ties with Paris (Asphalt Jungle, Métal Urbain), and Phallus Band, Streets, H2SO4 are singing in French. The adventure begins in the winter of 1976, and the next two years will yield most of the material.
Since these bands had very short lifespans, there were a lot of interactions (Chainsaw, X-Pulsion, Streets), while other configurations gave birth to key bands of the next decade: Digital Dance (out of X-Pulsion and Thrills), Snowy Red (from Chainsaw), The Names (The Passengers), Pseudocode (from Thrills).
