Spittle Records presents the first vinyl edition of this seminal compilation of the post-punk undercurrents of northern Italy. A typical story of suburban Italy, based in Pordenone, when creativity was on top and the shortage of technical resources didn’t keep the dream from coming true. That was the driving force of the often underestimated Italian punk scene. At the end of the ’70s a bunch of musicians from Pordenone joined the punk wave spreading all over the UK, making their way to London for a bizarre pirate live event. Hitler SS and Tampax played under the Acklam Bridge on Portobello Road. That was 1979. The performance was soon after known as the “Cartoon Concert” — because the members of the band played fake cardboard instruments. The Great Complotto was the cure, the vital alternative to the western standard way of life. This sought-after collection was released on cassette in 1980 and soon after was welcomed as the Pordenone manifesto, a testament to the incredible and extremely innovative musical scene that was not only aware of the British revolution but even tuned in to the more eclectic US form of art- and post-punk (think early Devo, The Residents, and — why not? — New York no wave). On this compilation you’ll get an idea of the raucous genius of Hitler SS/Tampax, Mess, Fhedolts, Sexy Angels, Andy Warhol Banana Technicolor, Mind Invaders, 001100111100011001011100 (credited as Cancer on the label), Musique Mecanique, W.K.W., Little Chemist, and Waalt Diisneey Production.
