A1. civil defense [ivan smagghe vocal édit]
B1. civil defense [get a room ! edit]
We know that there are no lost treasure anymore. The big one we mean, not 'la pepite', that little gold nugget that excites the record digger... Over the last few years, we've seen disco, italo, minimal wave and more recently early house exhumed from their dusty shelves for more or
less legal re-releases.
But then again, there may still be little gaps in the house archives, some records that escaped general knowledge. This relative anonymity does not make them better in itself, but worthy of our attention. Especially when they are the raw sound of pure madness, the fierce attack and the Civil Defense. Danny Alias wrote this UFO of a track in 86 (think Moonraker by Johnny Dangerous and instantly forget about it), it was played by Ron Hardy, a couple of other things and... Retreat.
When it popped out of our record shelves, we were astonished. This had to be re-released. So now and totally timeless. And guess what (note to the cheeky bootleger), Danny was really easy to trace and a very enthusiast man. The original edit by Ivan Smagghe (from the second volume of his A Few Things From Ivan Smagghe cds) is here, doubled with a pumped up version by the old/young team of Get A Room!
