Under influence of the punk spirit coming from England, Siglo XX wanted to make their very own kind of music that expressed their feelings, emotions and views on society. Technical skills on musical instruments were only required to a lesser extent. In 1980 their debut 7" single 'The Naked And The Death' was released on their own independent label Straatlawaai Records (the label still exists today). This single was followed by the release of a self-titled cassette in 1982, distributed only in very small quantities and reissued on Onderstroom in 2010 on vinyl. Shortly after they signed to Antler Records. This was probably the most important and prolific era of the band's existence. In the time span of a few years the band released two EP's and one mini-album: 'The Art Of War' (1982), 'Answer' (1983) and 'Dreams Of Pleasure' (1983), containing altogether 13 songs, which constitute the heart and soul of the oeuvre of Siglo XX. On these songs, produced by label owner Roland Beelen, Siglo XX lingers between cold wave, new wave and post punk. They were often named the Belgian Joy Division, which makes sense listening to their dark and gloomy sound, but they also experimented with strange sounds and incorporated these cleverly in their songs. The box set edition is limited to 200 copies.
