A retrospective of Zundert’s legendary Scoundrels, released via Gram Records. The vinyl release contains no less than 47 songs spread out over two LP’s, with a large booklet featuring liner notes, interviews, posters, flyers and photos. Essential Dutch hardcore punk history!

Scoundrels were founded way back in 1979. They quickly became a household name in the Dutch and Belgian punk scenes and debuted with the “Ufreettomoef” tape in 1985, followed the next year by the LP “Don’t Cry For The Moon”. In 1988 they released their second album “Join Hands” and called it quits in 1990. Or, more precisely (as now appears), the band decided to take a long break because they released their third album “Oh No! Not Again!” on Gram Records in 2022. Now it’s time to dive back into the past with “Afraid To Move”!

Sides A and B contain the remaster of “Ufreettoemoef”, the DIY tape from 1985 which was never reissued before and has become a highly sought-after item. Also on side B are various unreleased outtakes from the same session, such as the only studio version of their underground hit “Fuck The Queen”, and more. The second LP contains the 1981 demo and a blistering rehearsal from 1984. Side D is the live side which contains the full Hotel de Roskam show and more.
