Alien - Celebrating Your Victory (12", private, 1983)
A short one for today but one with a lot of power, this record that has been said to be a true inspiration for Skullflower. Monotonous banging on guitars and drums in two pieces and a feedback experiment. Alien came from Monster, a very small village near Den Haag, The Netherlands. The main man was Frans Lelieveld, who before was involved in a fanzine, BOH and the cassette label thereof. Their compilation cassette might follow one day. Lelieveld also had a band called 'Het Laatste', meaning The Last, because it was the last thing he would ever do. Not so, as this 12", made with a inhertence, came after that. Never heard of him again after that.
