IDIOTA CIVILIZZATO: La Vita Silenziosa: 7”

Deranged punk rock in Italian, from a band based in Germany, featuring personnel from three different countries. I would lay money down that Die Kreuzen’s debut album must have formed essential listening for those individuals, given how the frenzied seven tracks on this single remind me of that band. I love it when a band creates a sound creates a sense of chaos and lack of control, yet which actually manages to just about grasp onto a coherence which keeps it from running off the rails. That is what Idiota Civilizzato has achieved here with a sensation of barely holding it together gushing excitedly from the speakers. –Rich Cocksedge (Static Shock, [email protected], staticshockrecords.limitedrun.com)
