LP / Static Age Records / 2011 (1981-82)
A really nice release compiling the complete works from Bellevue.
Bellevue were from Switzerland and were from the same scene that spawned
Kleenex/Liliput, Sperma and Neon among others (members of Liliput
actually play on this) and released two obscure 7"s at the start of the
1980's, both are reproduced here alongside some unreleased songs and
some great quality live tracks (that actually add to the release and are
not typical rave-up esque filler!). Bellevue sang in German and
English, lyrically dealing with issues such as government surveillance,
the army, drugs and genetic engineering. This is definitely an
interesting release and worth checking out if you have any interest in
post punk, or if you are a fan of bands like Kleenex.
