Early Tapes
LP $17.50


DE 007 

REPRESSED!!! Dark Entries has dug deep into the early days of the Belgian cassette scene to release two tapes by THE NEON JUDGEMENT in the form of one vinyl LP for the first time ever! These pioneers of underground electronic music hail from the small town of Leuven near Brussels, Belgium and gave birth to the New Beat and EBM scenes worldwide in 1981/2 with the release of their first two cassettes–neatly compiled here as Early Tapes. Always a consistent duo of DIRK DA DAVO (synthesizers, vocals) and TB FRANK (guitar, drum machine, vocals) The Neon Judgment worked in a parallel world alongside Suicide, Cabaret Voltaire, and the Deutsche Neue Welle recording under the watchful eyes of ROLAND BEELEN (Antler-Subway) & LUDO CAMBERLIN (A Blaze Colour). Arriving just in time to celebrate the Neon Judgment’s 30th anniversary, Early Tapes showcases the band’s brash and seedy lyrics, with raw synth stabs and repetitive drum machine beats adding to this rhythmic discourse. The result is a combination of lo-fi technology and emotional sincerity to create a sound both warm yet alienating that has stood the test of time and 30 years later, still evokes the same magic. The 10 songs on this LP were remastered from the original cassette masters resulting in a cohesive, gritty, maniacal dance program that sounds more relevant today than ever. Each sleeve is hand numbered in limited edition copies of 500 with an 11” x 11” lyric sheet including rare photos, a mini poster and two silk screened die-cut diagrams taken from the band’s original synthesizer workbooks.
