Talkin'bout music industries misterious ways, it seems this band made two albums for the italian Appaloosa only.. Really doesn't existed any english version? A classic rock-pop label made two entire punk LP's in a country where, in the biennium 1981-83, anything could be more distance from a little hope of a commercial success. Much more, I could swear in those years the 'kids from the boot' got no idea about the existence of these records..
