A great band.. they were years ahead from their time. Much more: their music was full of violence but they were too politically oriented in the anarco/pacific way to be totally appreciated by the italian "punx" scene..
Don't forget italy was not totally exit from the lead (shot) years "anni di piombo". A decade near a civil war full of terrorism acts and unpunished slaughters..
So the kids not in the Reagan's eighties edonism still needed revenge, sex&violence and some blood in the lirycs of the music they love..
An argument too complex to explain here but I just hope a good label could make an official and great reissue of Contropotere records
