"I'm Sure We're Gonna Make It" is a compilation-cd with singles of Dutch first generation punkbands (1977-1982). These singles are often self-released in a limited edition. The CD is a 1996 Epitaph release. This CD goes with the book "Het Gejuich Was Massaal" ("The Cheering Was Massive"), ("the crowd roared" or "the applause was deafening" would be a more accurate translation - TS) the history of punk in The Netherlands, compiled by Jerry Goossens and Jeroen Vedder ( - no relation to Eddie, TS) and published by Stichting Popmuziek Nederland & Uitgeverij Jan Mets, Amsterdam in 1996.Thank you Bloody Revolutions.
This CD was promptly (almost instantly upon it's release) bootlegged in the form of a double album titled "Killed by Epitaph".
The Nitwtz track came off the "Wielingen Walgt" live 12" (recorded live february 1981) and was mastered off pure, poppin-and-a-crackling vinyl ! Btw, that bass intro is all downstrokes, homes. Goes to show some things never change.
"I'm sure we're gonna make it" arguably is thee motherload for fans of obscure, early Lowlander punk.
