PEGGIO PUNX: Discography: 2 X CD

One of Italy’s finest gets the discography treatment. Disc one gives you all their recorded output and the second disc is chock full of live recordings. Right there in time with Raw Power and Cheetah Chrome Motherfuckers, these guys established themselves in the Italian punk scene circa early ’80s. Upon hearing international bands during that time, you knew you were hearing something raw and special. The recordings are raw and could be have easily been recorded on a boombox. The drums always have that bongo drum sound. The production always has a muffled effect to it. The same applies to these recordings, but one thing that stands out is the uniqueness of the songs. The energy is genuine and it’s music that is distinctive to its time and place. A history lesson for those who seek it. Back in the day, this would been hard to get here in the states. Luckily, someone was smart to repress this to give it life one more time. No need to keep the music isolated to the people who can afford Ebay prices.
