"Emissions" is EB 7. Preceding releases EB 005 was a 4min Super8 film "Lines of Murder" and EB 006 an untitled 5min Super8 film.
The tape was released around june/july 1981, on 19 june 1981 Etat Brut played live with Mécanique Végétale at the Club Moral in Antwerp.
On 1 june 1981 they played again at the Beursschouwburg:
1) One of the machines decides not to work.
2) Man of the P.A. decides we play too loud and just turns the volume down. We had to scream and to hold all dolby's out and all volume at max value.
We were making a song called "Belfast" and all sounds were saturated and completely mixed. A big noise. I tried to get some sounds out of it. Not possible. My friend had to scream over the top and people could just see him scream but didn't hear very much. Strange impression probably.
3) I get excited. Smashed my bass on the stage and leave. My friend stay and keep on screaming on the noise. I come back with a chair, smash it on the floor and break it in two pieces. I take another chair and throw it through the stage to the other side. Then cut the power.
4) People seemed to like it (?) and applauded for an encore. We didn't do that, of course.
Deux électroencéphalogrammes (1 et 2) et les battements du coeur enregistrés pendant un sommeil normal (A) et pendant six secondes (représentées par la bande) de bruit dont les diverses intensités dépassaient 70 dB.
