FUGAZI-Concerto In Via Volturno 28 Occupato E Autogestito-(Not On Label-Italy-c60-1989)

Fugazi (/fuˈɡɑːzi/; foo-GAH-zee) is an American post-hardcore band that formed in Washington, D.C. in 1987. The band consists of guitarists and vocalists Ian MacKaye and Guy Picciotto, bassist Joe Lally and drummer Brendan Canty.
Fugazi are noted for their DIY ethical stance, manner of business practice,[1] and contempt towards the music industry.[2]
Fugazi have performed numerous worldwide tours, produced six studio albums, a film and a comprehensive live series, gaining the band critical acclaim and success around the world.[3] Fugazi has been on an indefinite break since 2003.
Fugazi has a long-lasting partnership with Positive Force DC (punk activist collective). Members in the band all strongly commit to non-commercial DC ethic, which means that the band concentrate on creating meaningful punk music and use it to radicalize the politics.[4] (from wikipedia)
This tape was recorded  at their gig on the 14 Nov. 1988,(It must have been their first european tour) in a squat in Udine
(Northern Italy)!The recording is just excellent.

v.a.-Allied Recordings-Music For The Proletariat-(Allied Recordings-Usa-1993)

Allied Recordings was an  hardcore punk label from San Francisco, California- run by John Yates, a graphic designer whose work can be seen on many covers of punk and hardcore records, also known for Punchline, a graphic magazine with sociopolitical contents.
The graphix works in this cd are indeed by him !Amazing stuff. 
John called this cd " An Inevitable Compilation from Allied Recordings"-you`ll find here a very good selection of bands and tracks expressing ideas and sonics messages touching the post punk,the hardcore,the indie rock and much more with a personal touch,never going on the commericial music yet very joyful.
A great sampler for future generations of non-compromising jingles.
