This band was part of the Tuscan scene of those who made grunge before the seattle world explosion. Massimo Cibecchini was a charismatic figure, an italian Mark Lanegan and I'm not saying it to belittle: in inverted hemispheres you would have said... See full review

posted a review of The Battered Ornaments - Mantle-Piece. 7 months ago
It's not important if was more pete Brown or chris Spedding.. This album is an incredible and really underrated masterpiece.. that was largely the best one, but if they just had to call the band with a more simple name for the four albums they did!

Un'ulteriore ripetizione: non posso credere che l'autore di quel capolavoro che fu 'La Fine dei Vent'anni' abbia esaurito la vena creativa in così breve tempo..

The guitar riff reminds to Motorhead or Plasmatics.. it's the miracle of kids from nowhere years ahead with their 'bad brains' and fantastic souls.. plus, the very miracle would be to find the original tape and have a decent remastered!

My pressing it's ok but there's something gone wrong probably in the final mix: it appears a flat sound and lacks any dynamics in the loudest songs. This kind of music needs high volumes but the result is an annoying greyness in which a part of their... See full review
Napoli Centrale - Qualcosa Ca Nu' Mmore

A great record. Probably the best of Napoli Centrale. Technically more accurate and musically vast: jazz rock, avantgarde, neapolitan folk echoes played with the awareness of those who know their strength. The experience from years of concerts and... See full review

One of the most important records in rock history. In 1977, in full punk explosion, Stranglers can anticipate the sounds and atmospheres of PIL, Siouxsie, Joy Division.. While rooting in the history of the Great Rock, and I think mostly the affinity... See full review

A great record.. I listened so little about Allah-Las but they didn't convince me in the 'new big garage thing' key, towards which certain press seemed to push the band. Despite this, their fourth record is a great job. A quite, mature sound which... See full review

When you look at the modest height and the splattered electric lemon colour of the vinyl you can't imagine this mono version will sound so good.. I just adjusted the speakers level and it's really ok

Possibly the greatest garage punk song from the year 1966. From an italian(!) band gone disbanded after this only release.. it seems a joke or something like that..

At the meantime without their boss Them did really better than hundreds of... See full review
