Cheetah Chrome Motherfuckers - “The Furious Era 1979-1987” Double LP
The champions of 80’s Italian hardcore! The CCM (almost complete) discography, this compiles together tracks from the Four Hundred Fascists 7″ from 1981; their tracks from the split LP with I Refuse It from 1983; the Furious Party 7″ from 1985; the Into The Void LP from 1986.
Compared to the greats of Mediterranean punk (Wretched, Negazione, Indigesti etc.), these guys were just that bit wilder and weirder than the rest. Distinctly Italian (while also sharing traits with early Meat Puppets and Die Kreuzen). Distinctly unique (and often copied: Pleasant Valley Children, Los Crudos, Crazy Spirit, Nasa Space Universe). Timeless music that twists and turns with an unpredictable mania, with Syd’s acidic vocals stretching the limits of the crazed speed that can spew forth from the human throat.
This band endorsed discography compiles 33 remastered tracks along with a biography (pictures, gig flyers, lyrics etc.).
