ATARASSIA GROP: Nonsipuofermareilvento: CD

This bad boy took some work; I almost pulled a hammy trying to pronounce the album title. A lot of the tunes seem to be about politics, only a couple songs are about drinking. There is a song about rugby too. Think Dropkick Murphys and The Boils if the singer was from Rome. I liked “Every Step,” “Scarves Outstretched,” and “Letter to Genoa” the best. But I’m a little confused about the sub-liner notes on “I Hate You.” Maybe this is just a piss poor translation? But “what else could we say to those madmen who regret Fascism?” Are these guys Fascists? That’s totally crazy!
