EP + CD | "Right Is Raw"
2022 | THREAT FROM THE PAST
COLOUR: Silver (EP), CD housed in a cardboard sleeve
NEUROOT from Arnhem, The Netherlands were one of the most (political) active bands in the dutch Eighties Punk, Hardcore scene, next to LÄRM, NO PIGS, STANX, B.G.K., ... one of the best known bands coming from The Netherlands (maybe from Europe) for shure. In summer 2022 (final date not shure yet) THREAT FROM THE PAST released a compilation LP + CD (CD will include different tracks) including tons of rare and raw material (mosty live) recorded from 1982 - 1988, as bonus the legendary "Right Is Might" EP from 1986 is added. All songs (except the tracks on the EP) were restored from original tapes and remastered by Henning Prochnow in Germany. All the LP (and CD) artwork was done by Marcel Stol (NEUROOT) and Bernd Spring (ULCEROUS, PHLEGM, DEEP) from Germany, who did all final graphic preparation for the pressing plant. Saddly the pressing plant in the Czech Republic didn´t press enough copies copies of the LP, so there´s an overstock of fifteen CD´s and ten EP´s (Black vinyl) plus five EP´s (Silver vinyl) so this special "Right Is Raw" Edition was created.
The compilation CD includes tracks from:
# a concert at Stokvishal in Arnhem, The Netherlands (20/12/1982)
# the demo for the "Right Is Might" EP (1986)
# a concert at Van Hall in Amsterdam, The Netherlands (17/4/1987)
# a rehearsal at Goudvishal in Arnhem, The Netherlands (1986)
# a concert at Goudvishal in Arnhem, The Netherlands (20/9/1987)

# a concert at Ungdomhuset in Kopenhagen, Denmark (13/02/1986)
