FESTA DESPERATO


Perhaps you are familiar with their later releases, perhaps not, but this 2003 shell from FESTA DESPERATO is a total scorcher.  While it's possible that the then en vogue fastcore explosion had more than a casual influence on their brand of rage, years later these songs are a manic cacophony of the highest order. Abrasive and sometimes painful, this chaos draws equally from '80s Italian hardcore, LÄRM and ripping USA thrash, while somehow managing to stay rooted in the punk history of their region. This one has spent years on my shelf, but it's going to be quite a while before it gets re-filed.  Apparently members are now involved in EVIDENCE SMRTI and others...

Oh man. This Festa Desperato tape is real good indeed. Thanks for this. I emailed you previously about this but any chance of a re-up for the Rudiments tape? I missed the bus on that one... It'd make my millenium! Thanks man.
