PUNKINARI/ LUMPEN: Skins & Punx New Generation Vol. 3: CD

Lumpen: Staggeringly un-engaging skinhead punk. Punkinari: A little better than their disc mates here, but not much. Kinda reminds me of those bands that would make it onto ’80s hardcore comps to give ’em an “international” flavor, but ultimately ended up being the tracks that got skipped over once the listening started. If this is the “new generation” of Italian punk, they’re in some deep doo doo over there.
