2011 release. Early Tapes comprises the first recordings of the duo of Dirk Da Davo and TB Frank and is now, for the first time, available on CD. The Neon Judgement was formed in 1980/1981. Instantly, they self-released two cassettes. With a limited amount of electronic instruments, they recorded their debut: Suffering. The first version of their classic track "Factory Walk" is on this tape, a much rawer version than the one which would later become an underground club hit. "Sweet Revenge" and "Schyzophrenic Freddy" remind of Suicide and the almost claustrophobic-sounding tracks "Harem" and "Army Green (WOIII)" are in the vein of the industrial music of Cabaret Voltaire or even Throbbing Gristle. Their second cassette "TV Treated" is also as good. "Sister Sue" and "On My Own" are ready-to-eat tracks for fans of Front 242 with Luc Van Acker. The remastered versions of these rare cassettes are now compiled on Early Tapes, an overview of TNJ 1980/1981. The first two bonus tracks, recorded live at Arno's in Leuven, give us an insight into the live performances of The Neon Judgement and the third extra track lets us meet Dirk Da Davo's solo project with the track "Sexhead." This CD is limited to 1,000 copies. The accompanying booklet includes song lyrics and rare photos from the TNJ archive. Mastering by Dancedelic. Includes an 8-page booklet. Housed in a digipak CD.
