Please note that updates will appear only when I have new information to add and when I have time.

According to the Claw Boys Claw page on the Beeld en Geluid Muziekencyclopedie (previously Nationaal Pop Instituut) website (in Dutch, but also available in English) Polydor also released this album on CD (no further details listed). However, this is not true! Which is confirmed in a 2002 Peter te Bos interview (in Dutch).
But! To celebrate the band's 25th anniversary, this album has finally been released as a remastered and expanded CD in June 2008!

Peter te Bos: vocals
John Cameron: guitar
Bobbie Rossini: bass
Allard Jolles: drums

As noted, there are two different pressings of this album. Except for the information on the sleeve and on the labels, these can also be identified by the text scratched in the inner grooves of the records:
Hipcat version: "Flip is een lolbroek" on side a, and "to our mothers" on side b;
Polydor version: "groeten aan mama", or (as on my copy) "brains" on side a, and "more brains" on side b.

  • Sources and links

    My own Claw Boys Claw collection has been the most important source for the above discography. For additional information I used the (vinyl-only) discography at Grunnen Rocks (maintained by Evert) and the already mentioned Beeld en Geluid Muziekencyclopedie (previously Nationaal Pop Instituut) website (in Dutch, but also available in English). Other bits and pieces were found through various websites by performing a lot of Google searches. And last but not least, a thank you goes out to Eric a.k.a. Bietel, Christan Wehrens, Vincent van Tol, Joop Manuel, Peter te Bos, and a very very big thanks for a lot of information and scans goes out to Eric Groenewold!!
