SKINS E PUNKS = T.N.T. (C.A.S.) ‘83
Then, we begin to frame the things from the historical point of view: this wonderful sonorous gadget, promoted and produced from the Flock Bells (that is, in practical, from the Nabat), wanted to be the first testimony on 7″of the attempt to join two truth of road for many analogous backs, but that not always in the age they succeeded to coexist in the same furious and worthy place without to give place to risse of the best spaghetti-westerns, as of the rest many veterans of 80 years ‘ anchor remember (see also Percy of the Bloody Riot in its gustosa autobiography). Today, clearly, the times are change to you. Or not? ~From Lamette.it, a cool Italian bloghere
Released in 1983 on C.A.S. records, this was an attempt by the labels founders NABAT, to show unity in the growing unrest between punks and skins. Punks being represented on this record by ARRM and RAPPRESAGLA and the skins by NABAT and DIOXINA .
The same time showed Nabat as the protagonists ( if not the promoters ) of the first and second national rallies of Monza and Bologna which got very good recensements by the independent italian music press. These rallies ( where Punk and Skinhead bands played at ) aim was the overcoming of the dividing differences of both movements: „ SKIN E PUNK SARANNO UNITI GLI OBBIETTIVI SONO COMUNI QUESTI FOTTUTI PERBENISTI ” (translated: skins and punks will be united ,the objectives are common for these fucking people who want to appear respectable) was what Nabat was singing about and one cannot but agree. ~From the NABAT page here
Whatever the politics or reasons this record was released, the most important fact is IT’S A RAGER!!. Save for the second ARRM track and the tame DIOXINA tracks, this is some of the BEST material that the other bands ever put out. ARRM’s first song is a great but, the second “neo reggae” song, not so much. The RAPPRESAGLIA songs destroy (from their 8 song,1982 demo) and is also their strongest material, if you like blazing, pissed off hardcore. The NABAT songs burn with anger and frustration and are probably the fastest songs they ever released. The DIOXINA songs are a bit tame compared to their later record but are still raw and good.
There was also another comp LP put out by C.A.S. in 1985 called ” Quelli Che Urlano Ancora” with some of the same bands (nabat and dioxina) and some additional oi stuff but, nowhere near as essential as this 7″.
I’m not sure but, I think this has been bootlegged a couple time and there is also an LP version (re-release or boot????) with extra tracks,that has come out recently.
