40 years ago, on October 14 1977, a new punk band made its first gig in Brussels. This band, X-Pulsion, was the direct successor of the defunct Chainsaw. Lead by Jerry Wanker (aka Wx) and Peter Schlager, the belgian public discovered that a band can make gigs where you'll never be safely watching. Public was grabbed, jumped into with a blast of sounds exploding their ears... and it knew by the way they stared at them that they talked no sh*t! It was crisp, brutal, aiming to create reactions...
Besides an EP on Romantik, nothing was recorded, but recently some recovered rehearsals allowed us to make this LP.
On this album you'll find demos from the end of 77 and 78 same period than their sole 7" on Romantik , these demos are taken from rehearsal tapes recorded live on cheap cassettes 4-track by the band plus one demo from "X-pulsion 2" , a last line-up before the total end of the band ; 2 songs from their 7" recorded live at a Belgian TV show called Follies , those 2 songs have the best sound and here you can feel the rawness of their live performances . In fact they were the first to have that agressive posture with the public at that time , you can easily understand it just reading the title tracks . To complete the story , we included a 20 pages booklet (A5) with pictures , story by Peter Schlager and crude extracts from DIY fanzine from 78 , all infos you should know about this seminal band in belgian punk history .
