Various Artists | B9: Belgian Cold Wave 1979-1983

B9 is a definitive compilation CD tracing the development of post-punk and new wave music in Belgium between 1979 and 1983. Originally released on indie label Sandwich Records in May 1981, the compilation album B9 featured ten exclusive tracks by a range of diverse Belgian new wave, electronic and underground artists, including Digital Dance, Polyphonic Size, Kid Montana, Pseudo Code and Prothese - the latter the first recording project by Daniel B of Front 242. Although Sandwich was destined to be overshadowed by better-known Brussels labels such as Les Disques du Crepuscule and Crammed Discs, founder Michel Lambot soon afterwards formed European indie empire PIAS.
Now digitally remastered and available on CD for the first time, the album features an extra eight bonus tracks in order to provide a more comprehensive snapshot of new wave music in Belgium between 1979 and 1983. Mostly taken from rare singles, the extra tracks include songs by The Names, Marine, Front 242, Siglo XX, Allez Allez, Berntholer, Jung and Isolation Ward. This expanded 75 minute edition of B9 also includes detailed sleevenotes and an assortment of period images and graphics.
