The Squats - Noise Overdose EP
Official reissue of one of the scarcest Dutch punk records. Hailing from Nijmegen Squats were popular from simply being a bunch of punks which loved to fuck shit up. Raised on a steady diet of SHAM 69 and COCKNEY REJECTS which they covered on their demo tape it is a mystery what happened to them before recording their 'Noise Overdose', in my eyes simply a perfect teenage inept punk record. The five tracks within this EP are catchy, aggressive and perfectly exemplify how the second wave of punk had spread everywhere by 1981, and how the influence of what we now call UK82 was really present. Reissue maintaining the original design of the artwork except for the size which made most original copies in circulation in poor condition due to its oversized nature.
