CCCP - Fedeli Alla Linea is the most famous and legendary Italian punk band of the 1980s. The use of minimal and repetitive guitar sounds, drum machine and declaimed vocals was closer to Crass and the British anarcho-punk scene, although their sound was so personal and unique that it never was punk in the strict sense of the term.

The original members of the band met in Berlin in 1982 and formed the band, playing some concerts in the north of Germany. Later they returned to Italy and published their first 7" "Ortodossia" on the legendary Attack Punk Records in 1984, soon followed by the picture 12" "Compagni, Cittadini, Fratelli, Partigiani". The first LP came in 1986 and was entitled "Affinità-Divergenze Fra Il Compagno Togliatti E Noi (Del Conseguimento Della Maggiore Età)".

CCCP - Fedeli Alla Linea, since their very name, created huge scandals in the Italy of the 1980s, dominated by yuppies, pro-Americanism and a second economic boom. The band exploited Soviet imagery and symbols, the complex and visionary lyrics attacked Western society and its myths, provocatively countering them with Soviet Union, Socialism and even the Muslim world. They defined their own music as "Pro-Soviet punk".

In 1990, after the collapse of the Berlin Wall and of the Communist Block, CCCP - Fedeli Alla Linea changed their name into C.S.I. (Consorzio Suonatori Indipendenti), and took a different music direction, more into popular folk and experimental rock.

Extraordinary band with an incredible artistic path. Starting with punk, they directed the sound towards new musical avant-gardes. In Italy they are very popular and are not really a group followed by a few people. In the 90s their musical journey continued with the C.S.I.

I have to disagree that this band was the "most famous and legendary italian punk band of the '80s...°. Nobody really cared about 'em when they played they first gigs (when i saw them at an "open air" at the Casa del Popolo of Sassuolo in 1983, there was barely 15 people watching). Shortly after, already in they post-punk" phase, they became hype thanks to some friendly press in magazines such as Rockerilla (that was called "fuckerilla" by the Punx in those days).
