v.a-Siamo Solo Una PIccola Minaccia-(Colpo Su Colpo-Italy-1996)

Single side cassette with 9  Italian bands paying tribute to Minor Threat!

Some songs are quite well played yet just a shadow-form copycat of the originals, the only one that really stands on its own, is "Stand Up" performed by LA. Choix as they infuse their personal touch and feel to that track.
"Filler" played by Supereroi is sung in the Italian language. 

Colpo Su Colpo was a small tape label active in the mid-90s managed by Matteo Gigliucci in Follonica.
If you are a die-hard fan of Minor Threat then you might find this sampler interesting.
Enjoy it.

THE RADSTERS-Faster Than Police-(Self Released-Italy-2019)

The Radsters is a band from Naples (South Italy) playing a raw form of straight in your face speed rock mixed with a good dose of energetic punk: think Motorhead meets Turnonegro on a battleground.
Formed in 2008, connected to the squat scene of the Partneopean capital after a few line-up changes they established a very tight combo and have played many gigs in and out the Italian boot.
Their first 7inch "The Radsters" was released in 2012  followed by a full- length cd "The Wild Bunch" in 2015.
 This is their last production: a 12 inch with 8 tracks on one side while on the other we`ll find a nice screen-printed original drawing.

You can find the discography on their Bandcamp Page where you can get their music choosing your price, while you can read the last news on their FB Page.
For all of you curious to know more, a very good and in-depth interview
has been published on the webzine Son Of Flies last month. 
To complete this post I am attaching the last video.
A big Thanx to Peppe (the bass player) for providing links, pictures and related info.
If you are into fast, aggressive and powerful punk`n`roll then you` ll love The Radsters, this last 12inch is definitely a good one.
Enjoy it.

LORD LITTER-No More Rock`n`Roll-(Self Released-Germany-1987)

Another great cassette by the eclectic Lord Litter, I wrote about him when I have posted his tapes Space Age and The Place Where The World Collide.
Here a quote by him taken from his actual webpage  where you can read about his history, releases, related projects and his incredible radio shows.

"I started releasing my music in 1984-"the cassette scene revolution" made it possible to record/duplicate/release/distribute from your living room. Whenever I had some songs finished that presented a certain period,
I released them with the help of an uncontrollable amount of small labels- all just there for the music-worldwide.
First on cassettes, later on CD-Rs. I never even tried to make money with my music by cooperating with any kind of "industry".
All in all, I really have no idea how many releases I have out. At the least 40 I guess, plus countless tracks on compilations, cassettes/vinyl /cd."

Enjoy it.

CCC CNC NCN-I Treni Di Marzo-(Video-Self Released-Italy-2020)

Another great production by the mighty CCC CNC NCN a radical collective from Torino(Northern Italy) coming from the anarchic/antagonist underground scene, combining old-school industrial sounds with conceptual records and live shows about unpopular topics, such as suicide as an extreme choice of freedom, mass control, and oppression.
I have already posted Performance Soundtracks 2005/6 
and their masterpiece album released in 1989 "Suidicio Modo D`Uso"
and  the Cd+7inch Proclami released in 1993. 
An FB page about them and their recent activities is here.
And this is their actual webpage
This video was released 2 months ago and it is about the escape of thousands of southern Italians from the North of the Italian boot due to the Covid 19 fears/paranoias. 
Enjoy it.
Escape, escape, escape, escape, escape... You run away on trains at night... You run away on trains at night... Train stations and tracks full of lovely people... You run away on trains at night. Locked up in jails, we will die. You buy, pile up, standing in lines overnight, bulging shopping carts full of your fear, bulging shopping carts full of your fear. Of bombs and famine, we will die. You scorn insult, toast 'til night. You scorn, insult someone else's misery. You scorn insult, toast 'til night. On your banks, we will die. Yours the lifeboats, yours are the shelters. Now the world is on fire, now the world is sinking. Yours the lifeboats, yours are the shelters. Now the world is sinking, now the world is on fire. Locked down by borders, not gonna be just us.

Hyperdistort, slow malignant industrial/punk sounds waved with loops, strange voices and grim energy. Great stuff from the cave of the 90s.

PROGETTO MORTE-New Day-(Slaughter Productions-Italy-1996)

Progetto Morte was another project by Marco Corbelli, the artist covered in this blog quite a few times. 
On this cassette, Marco is joined by Walter Piano who wrote and recited the lyrics. The music is a miasma of minimal noise-ambient where Walter waves his nihilist pain`s poetries.
 Slaughter Productions was the label managed by Marco Corbelli releasing mostly his own music and few other associated noise artists.
To complete this post I am adding the video of their performance at the Dracma in Torino on the 20/01/1996.
Enjoy the death industrial ambient.
