Rare 7" from Belgium... this band might be known to some for their appearance on the "Nuit Blanche" compilation LP in '84. The a-side ("B. Town Beauty") is somewhat conventional, catchy new wave/punk with a singer who reminds me of the French band Wallenberg in certain parts of this track. Not bad, but the highlight of the record is the great b-side ("Ghetto"), which sounds like a totally different singer to me... but certainly no indication in the credits. Anyways... this is a great depressive cold wave tune.
Someone on discogs left the note: "Nice coldwave from Oostende (Belgium), a much sought-after collector's item in vein of De Brassers and Red Zebra, recorded at Danny Lacksman Synsound Studio Brussels in May '82".
