Long compilation compiled by Roberto Liuzzi, who used to write a newsletter called Contro, back in the 90s. I had lost my copy of the booklet and so I couldn`t retrieve the track-list of bands/songs, funny enough lately I got back in touch with Roberto,after a very long time and he kindly provided the scans of the booklet. Roberto has nowadays a blog called Tribe`s Union, which mainly focused on the Italian HC punk scene.
The sampler Orecchiette Alla Pestona Il bis is the second issue of this series and it covers HC Punk bands from Puglia (and a few strictly related bands of the surrounding area) active at the end of the 90s. The booklet reports info and lyrics, I have asked Roberto to write a few lines to present this great sampler, so here is his message:
Attack! This strong sensation felt from listening to this tape
compilation, after 20 years that I didn`t play it. A time journey that
recalls many reminiscences: a freeze frame, an adrenalinic picture of
that precise and very rich moment, a peak of a creative and antagonistic
turmoil (fanzines, bands, squats,t.a.z, and similar diy events)like,
maybe never happened before in that region.
It is so clear in my mind as an experience that I have lived, it is an unforgettable memory.
Selective criteria in choosing the acts(only HC Punk bands from that area, with many different sound variations, only Pugliesi bands with just a few cousins very close in that area)based on human/attitude affinity, all united to imprint on tape our will to make ourself heard, everyone hoping to keep going in our journey.Thanks, Faraway to renew the experience.
To complete this post I am attaching the tracks list. A very big thanks to Roberto for helping me with the booklet scans and for his written contribution. Enjoy it.
