Aimless Device - Hard To Be Nice 12'' 1985

Aimless Device existed from 1985 to 1989 and mixed Cold Wave / Rock guitars with drums and the occasional synthesizer. The band was founded by Bart Azijn and Patrick Meulemans. Their first mini-lp “Hard to Be Nice” gave them modest fame across Europe. Besides Belgium they toured France, Germany and Spain.

Onderstroom Records recently released a cd compilation that includes all of the tracks that were officially released + 2 bonus tracks, in an edition of 600, distributed in Italy by Mannequin.

I have found it today in Barcelona :-)
