What exactly happened in the Italian underground / post punk scene 30 years ago, is not entirely clear. Therefore, this collection of 35 incredible tunes helps tracking down the feeling and focuses on the blurry images of a period that was mixing influences from the UK/USA scenes with a more “national”approach to new music developments. The damage began in 1977 when a series of urban / suburban musical agitators, whether skilled or complete amateurs, decided to embrace instruments as weapons for a war against sonic stereotypes. Here’s the result: a multiform sonic attack that marks the history of a movement that may have remained local in most cases but whose echo reflected the amazing creativity of a generation. Check the amazing booklet with photos and notes on the featured bands and take your synth out of your closet!
