Portrait Bizarre - A New Day LP

Maasmechelen (Belgium) 1981; the birth of darkwave-industrial band Portrait Bizarre. After a year, being influenced by bands such as Joy Division and The Cure, PB performs as opening act for bands like Luna Twist, The Scabs, The Neon Judgement and De 2 Belgen. In 1984 they've already become a regional icon. After the song 'Friends could be Friends' was selected by Ludo Camberlin (anything but records) for a spot on the compilation 'No big Business 2', things went fast for the band. Later that year the first (and only) 12" 'Heat up one moment' was released, a 3-track with B-Sides 'The Invitation' and 'Ballad of the Grave' which all became classics in the underground-circuit.

In 1985, after several line-up changes, the group split up because of musical differences. Now, 30 years later, the band is back and after some rehearsals and a sold out concert in their hometown, Portrait Bizarre present their album 'A new Day' in a limited edition of 520 handnumbered copies, 180 gram Vinyl, no re-press!
