B9 Bis [LTMCD 2486] | The Names

This expanded CD edition of rare compilation album B9 offers a comprehensive overview of post-punk and cold wave music in Belgium between 1979 and 1983. Originally issued by Sandwich Records in May 1981, B9 featured ten exclusive tracks by a range of diverse electronic and underground artists including Digital Dance, Polyphonic Size, Kid Montana, Pseudo Code and Prothese - the latter the first recording project by Daniel Bressanutti of Front 242.

Now digitally remastered for CD, the album features eight bonus tracks by other Belgian artists from the same era. Mostly taken from rare singles, these include songs by The Names, Marine, Front 242, Siglo XX, Allez Allez, Berntholer, Jung and Isolation Ward.
