Description:

RSD 2018 Belgium release, limited to 500 copies. The band Gruppenbild was named after Heindrich Böll's famous novel and was the first musical output by the versatile Stijn Meuris (Noordkaap, Monza). Drummer Frank Coonen would later go on to be a member of '90s indie powerpop trio The Romans. Also joining in here are Luc Vrancken (bass), Marc Guffens (guitar) and Stijn's brother Koen Meuris on the keyboards. Taking inspiration from both British postpunk cornerstones as well as Belgian bands like De Brassers, Siglo XX, TC Matic and the Dutch band De DIV. The 'Tranquillity' EP was originally released on Blitz Records in 1982. This was the band's first and only release and has become quite the rare collectable that is fetching hundreds on the second hand market.
