RSD 2018 Belgium release, limited to 500 copies. In the eighties there was an incredibly interesting underground scene emerging in the Belgian Leuven area. Bands like The Neon Judgement, Sovjet War and countless others all came from that area and era. One of the most underestimated bands in that scene was Company Of State, a duo with a unique sound that played dark moody guitar-electro with a minimal DIY touch. Influenced by a wide array of artists such as Joy Division, Velvet Underground and Edith Piaf, the duo Rudolf Hecke and Paul Taes formed the band Company Of State and recorded their self-titled debut (a four track 7"EP) on their self-founded label in 1983. Best described as: wild guitars with all kinds of feedback and distortion combined with a heavy bumping rhythm-box in the background. and once the vocals kick in you get that melancholic magic that makes this EP a true classic.
