The Rousers (Lp's And Singles)

By Request, Re-Post's from 10/01/2008 and 2/14/2010 (New Rips and Scans, Plus Singles)
I originally started this blog to make music from great bands like The Rousers more available for people to hear. Recently, someone requested re posts of both Lp's; so I decided to post them together and add the singles too. Unfortunately I forgot that my copy of Susans day was warped; I tried to fix it and ruined it like an idiot. Anyway, I recently bought a new copy; when I get it, I'll add it to the post. Additionally, one or two of the other singles had some crackle to them; it's been a long time since I listened to them(I guess It's time to upgrade "Enjoy"!).







The Rousers were a five piece from Broek op Langedijk, Netherlands that started around 1977 and lasted till 1981. During that span they released two full lengths and a handful of singles. Near the end of 1980, vocalist Bonne Zigtema left the band trimming the line up to four. Vocal duties were taken over by Cock de Jong and Wieb Zigtema on the Touched Lp. After the break up the band split into The Thought and The Shavers.

Line Up -

Cock de Jong - Guitar and Vocals
Jan de Jong - Drums
Rob Marienus - Bass
Bonne Zigtema - Vocals
Wieb Zigtema - Guitar and Vocals

Torso Records 1979,1980
Ariola Records 1980

Sorry, I don't think I ever picked up a copy of At The Discotheque. I might have an Mp3 somewhere. Contact me through Email and if I have it, I'll send it to you.

zach said...

oh man, thanks! "Leave Us Alone" is the best thing i've heard in a while.

Frank said...

Hi Zach, cool to see your still around. Glad you like the tune...Thanks for the comment!

zach said...

yeah i come by every now and then.

i do have to say that it's so great that you reply to everyone's comments. seems rare with most sites.

Frank said...

Even though it's a bit redundant at times; I figure if someone, (such as yourself) is cool enough to take the time to leave a comment I should try to answer them. I figure it's like not answering someone who says hello...Thanks Zach.

Brilliant band and I'm addicted. Can't stop listen to their first LP. Good to see you have the second and after the first hearin' I miss the beat sound. It's more punk I think. Still great. Frank, do you have the Susan's Day 7'' parat?? I need this record too. possible????

Frank said...

I do have it, I completely forgot I was going to post it with the others. As soon as I get a chance, I'll post it fo you. Thanks for the comment.
