hitler ss // tampax split (italy 1978)
ONE TWO THREE BANZAIIII!
i'm sure these guys are famous in a lot of people's eyes. hitler ss is a minimal blur, with rigid instrument asignments: one guitar constantly droning chords, guitar solo, flopping bass, disco drums. IT'S 1977! NO SOLUTION! FUCK OFF! tampax is even goofier, with awesome hiiiiigh frequency waves blaring over everything sometimes. the singer sounds like he's about to pass out the whole time and makes a fart noise at the end
"The birth of punk in Italy. Loud and snotty punk Italian style, this would have to be one of the best singles to ever emerge out of Italy. 1000 copies pressed, some sides play at 45rpm others play at 33, very strange… Love the liner note on the Tampax side: Recorded from 5:30pm to 5:45pm (30 December 1978) Thats what I call a cheap studio bill."
