OK, let me start by making a few things clear here; I am not a huge fan of Italian hardcore. I do prefer the early punk stuff and would kill for a copy of the Ice and the Iced’s EP as it’s so good it almost hurts. And if anyone’s got an affordable copy of S.I.B’s LP “The third world war” I’d be happy to buy it. The we have the Mittageisen 7″ from 1979 that I’d be happy to just be friend with someone who owns it.
With that said it’s quite clear that my knowledge of Italian punk and hardcore is amateurish at best, but I know one thing; I prefer Peggio Punx over the incredibly over rated Hitler SS/ Tampax split! First time I heard it I thought it was quite funny, second time not as much fun, and then third time really annoying.
Peggio Punx debut is funny as hell as well. I can’t stop thinking I’m playing it at the wrong speed ’til the vocals kicks in. The high pitched guitars (mosquito sound according to Ericha) and hysterical drum fills makes me think it should play on 33 instead of 45. But despite being incredibly funny it’s also incredibly great, and that cuming from a manboy who prefers early punk rock over hardcore any given day is a huge compliment.
Fuck, just enjoy the music as this text makes no sense what so ever, except Hitler SS/ Tampax split = bad, Peggio Punx = good.
