Punk Rock Holland

Once again there are a lot of good records from here, including a few classics such as Filth, Helmettes, and the Tits. The Punk Rock From Holland compilation has selected tracks from a number of good records. My picks would include Brommers, BVD, Mecano Ltd, Mirandas 1st EP (the 2nd is OK too), Mollesters, Neo Punkz, Nitwitz, Panic LP, Rapers, Speedtwins, Studs, Subway and the Vopos (who also have releases besides the ones listed that I've been told to avoid). The Railbirds (who shared a split EP with the Rondos and also appear on a 2x7" compilation) are also very good. The 1st Ivy Green 7" and LP are very good, their later releases are just pop. The Flyin' Spiderz 1st LP is pretty good punk rock. The Rondos have a particular sound which sometimes sounds good but it can be hard to listen to at times. Several labels have a number of good releases such as No Fun (God's Heart Attack, Helmettes, Mecano Ltd, Subway), Plurex (Filth, Tits, Mollesters - but beware there are some very bad records on this label) and Rock Against (Rapers, Nixe, Coitus Int., Lullabies). There is a compilation on Rock Against, maybe called Zeven Vijftig (it has a naked man on the cover anyway), which is good, typically Dutch sounding punk .
