Nine Songs from the most famous Swiss Punk band TNT are finally available on a limited CD of 1000 ex.
On June 5, 1979, the label Voxpop released TNTs first single Züri Brännt (Zurich is burning). This track was originally written by The Dogbodys, including the b-side Subway Scene. The third on the record, 131 (consisting of that number of words in the song), is a true TNT offering though. Züri brännt is still the best known Punk song to originate from Switzerland and it ultimately became the band’s trademark. During the early 1980’s, this track quite unintentionally emerged as the main anthem for the violent 80’s youth movement of Switzerland.
TNT's second single was released in April 1980 on the classic Swiss Punk record label, Off Course. The two tracks Fight and Remember are punchy and sound very much like the English Punk Rock of that time period. Yet, a third track called Stupid Boy was also recorded, but not included on the 7” and then completely forgotten about. It surfaced during the research for the book Hot Love which chronicles the Swiss Punk and Wave scene from 1976 to 1980. So, nearly 30 years later, Stupid Boy will be released for the first time on this CD.
Alec von Tavel’s label Disctrade then released TNT's third single Razzia and They robbed us in 1981. Razzia, next to Züri brännt, actually became the most popular TNT song. The bonussong
Splash came from their Live performance on November 8,1980 at the Hotel Eintracht in Wolfenschiessen, NW.
