ATTRITO-Demo-(Self Released+La Pernakkia On Tapes-Italy-1990)

This one was posted on Italian Do It Yourself blog few years ago,yet Gianmaria didn`t post the booklet included in this tape,so I am now posting the whole production.
This is the first band using this name,in fact it is not to be confused with the band with the same name formed in 2008 and still active.
Some of them went on playing in other bands:Fuck Simile in the 90s and I Magneti nowadays.
La Pernakkia was an anarcopunk zine active in the self managed channel of the squats and diy distros in the 80s.
The booklet reports interviews and info about the roman punk scene of the late 80s:very interesting.I am afraid it is only in italian language. 
Enjoy it.
ps-a very big thanx to Gianmaria of Italian Do It Yourself for this rip :)

v.a.-Blindness,Deafness & Brain Damage-(Joukkomurha Worlwide-Finland-c90-199?)

Another compilation by this finnish label,covered in this blog quite few times now.Joukkomurha Worldwide is another name for the most famous Joukkomurha Tapes or JM Tapes.Here an introduction taken from Discogs.I guess this was written by Jupe Luoma,the mind behind this label.
"From the west coast of Finland - the city of Vaasa, to be more precise - rose a small but relentless and heavily networking cassette-only label originally known as Joukkomurha [Engl. Mass Murder or Massacre] Products or Tapes. The title of the label was later watered down to a more neutral-sounding (maybe even a wee bit more) JM-Tapes. The label was originally started just for fun, as a continuation to the creative stream of small press activity. The label was active producing the plethora of cassette-only albums (or alblums, as John Bartles would put it!) and compilations of folk / punk / electronic / aggressive / art music(k) and odd bits of sound all the way from Ohio to Okinawa. The label was in action between 1989 and 1998. In total, there were more than 70 releases during that time of angst, madness and creativity. The label was run by J Luoma, who was acknowledged on the "thanks" list of Reverend Bizarre's debut LP as the "witch of the west"!"

ESTASI ACIDA-Please Try To Forget(Fanzine-Italy-1995)

Another production target E.A.!This ghost collective/project, active in the 90s, is been covered in this blog many times now.
This is a zine with a bit of a tragic history,I gonna attach here the page with its introduction and relative  translation.
Enjoy it.
click me 

(Translation of the last page from Italian to English)
What you have here is the third zine assembled by the multimedia project called E.A.-in the beginning this zine should have been released on the german label Cat-Killer,and in fact Carsten of Cat Killer printed about 20 copies of it before the german police confiscated all his tape label stuff accusing him of piracy-basically they accused him of selling famous artist`s music(very false indeed-Cat Killer label was a small tape-label of electronic industrial music). This happened during summertime of 1995 while this zine it`s been assembled just 1 year before in the graphic room of Pishina Okkupata in Foggia, Just before sending all the masters to Carsten,we thought to make some photocopies of all the originals. this is why we managed to have it back, then Alessandro of Anapeste label offered his help to print it again…this is in few words the story of this zine, all the texts are written in English as we intended to distribute this zine outside Italy .
