NIEW HIP STILEN-HEARTSOUNDS & MURMERS, LP, 1985, NETHERLANDS






This highly enjoyable and intriguing Dutch group mate some of the sprightlier dimensions of the R.I.O. aesthetic with punchy Downtown NY-isms and tangle it up with percolating electronic rhythms, never really sitting tidily in any one camp and it's all the better for it.

Get it Here

Ha!!!! Thanks!!! I didn't even know about this album!!! Frontman of this band was Maarten, the bald one, who used to play guitar with the legendary communist Rotterdam punkband The Rondo's... I saw Niew Hip Stielen perform live at one of those Pandora Festivals and still have the (pretty good) recordings of that. Also still have the Rondo's album. If your interrested, just drop me a mail at djrotterdam2003@yahoo.com
I'll be happy to send you that stuff...
Thanks again!!!
