As summer vacation is getting closer I’m starting to plan where to go, and southern Europe is always a nice option for us in the cold freezing north. Been at least 20 years since I was in Italy last time, so maybe that’s an option. Might be Cyprus as well as it’s a cheaper option which means I can buy more records instead! Anyone knows of any nice ultra marathons in Cyprus during the summer as I can’t spend all my time there at the beach flexing the days away.
This is one of my favorite records by the way (and I know it’s not exactly the first time I say that), and I like it even more as Peter don’t like it! We’re like yin and yang when it comes to punk taste, and my taste is superior of course! Two longer songs that are really, really great, and two really short ones that are just as great! I’d say this ep got the whole package from the killer guitar sound, to hooky songs, inaudible vocals (if anyone can figure out what the singer says after 2.06 in We’ve had enough I’d be very grateful. Is he accusing his teacher of sexual assault?
There’s a deluxe package of this 7″ that came in a box with a zine, poster and a few extras, but it seems to be close to impossble to find the whole shebang, and so far I’ve only seen photos of it. It does looks brilliant though. And just as brilliant looks the jacket of the guy in the middle with all those pins! Must’ve been a massive thing to wear! The guy to the left of these Ramones looking guys ain’t too far behind, but his collection is still really modest compares the the middle guy.
Something that still makes me amused apart from the incredible gritty and fuzzy guitar sound are the titles on the a-side, is Rock ‘pn’ roll a spelling mistake and is Polyschizophrenya actually Italian? It looks so made up and misspelled. Chano, you should know about this, and might hear what they actually sing about as well…?
