REQUIEM-Storm Heaven-(CrimethInc-USA-2005)

Requiem is an American anarchist hardcore punk band founded by ex-members of Catharsis.
In this full-length album, they play a furious form of HC punk mixing various influences. This cd comes in a beautiful booklet reporting ideas and lyrics, the cover sleeve is actually a stencil...
A very good production by the legendary Crimethink: a label that started in the mid-1990s, the CrimethInc. Ex-Workers' Collective (CWC) is a decentralized publisher of anarchist and alternate lifestyle ideas in literature, music, and video. No copyrights.
The label originally released titles as Inside Front Records, having its origins in the Inside Front hardcore fanzine. Their actual webpage is here.
Enjoy it.

BIzarro Distribuzioni-(Self Released-Italy-1991)

Short yet very interesting catalogue edited and distributed by the mail artist, music critic and a real cultural activist: Vittore Baroni.
Mixing music, videos, mail art and graphic works it offers a view about what Vittore was distributing long time ago, all stuff that is definitely out of print now. 
 The astonishing graphic-works by the fantastic Professor Bad Trip enrich this small catalogue making it a pure gem by the intricated world of the underground press from the last century.
Enjoy it.

AFGHANISTAN-Autodafe 95-(Self Released-France-1995)


Afghanistan is the astonishing project by the French artist Philip Chasset-a Discogs pages about him is here unfortunately with no much info about his activities.
 In this great tape-work, Phil plays a raw form of electro-industrial. His cover version of The Wall by Pink Floyd is simply amazing.
 This is an amazing tape for people into electro/cold wave and industrial music.
