The Neuroot was from Arnhem (one bridge too far). We had good contacts with this scene, especially with Stol, basplayer on this tape. Arnhem had the ‘Stokvishall’ local punkclub. A big empty factory hall. Attended my second The Clash gig there. It was their ‘Give Them Enough Rope’ tour. Good gig, lesser good album. First time I saw The Clash was a year before in Belgium. Great show. Massive loud and therefore heavy distorted. Couldn’t recognize the songs so don’t remember the set list. Do remember the support act: Elvis Costello. Totally unknown (but not for long). Funny, these early punkrock days. The stars then had only a short live. The supports survived longer (Costello-Clash/Sting-Damned).


The Neuroot was a heavy punkrock band English style. They where good although I must say its not my thing nowadays anymore. Neuroot means (obvious) Neurotic.

Recorded in the basement of Bauplatz.

Funny, someone had to remind me about the release. Sure I remember recording this but not for Limbabwe release. I always thought it was released somewhere else.

I did one more recording session with Stol, the first single of Mother. Great drummer in this band. Early 90ties. The studio already moved to Tegelen centre.
