Stagebeast - 1978 - Belgium 7'' (BE)

Stagebeast - 1978 - Belgium 7'' (BE)
.
Stagebeast was considered one of the important and influential punk rock bands in Belgium. Fronted by Frank Dubbe Stagebeast won the 2nd prize of the very first Humo's Rock Rally. They soon recorded the single "Belgium (Ain't Fun No More)" which was released by EMI in 1978.
Stagebeast lost their recording contract after wrecking up the EMI manager's office in Brussels.[citation needed] They subsequently became Revenge 88, and recorded the "Neonlight" single in 1981, which was followed by "Thousand Years".
Revenge 88 broke up in the mid 1980s, but was recently resurrected by original frontman, Dubbe.
The Stagebeast single "Belgium" / "Working Man" as well as the Revenge 88 song "Neonlight" are featured on the KBD compilation albums.
