EU'S ARSE/IMPACT - split 7"
"Official reissue of one of the most legendary and sought after splits in Italian hardcore history (second maybe to wretched/indigesti??) originally self-released by eu’s arse in 1983 with 1,000 copies pressed. this reissue features the original layout including all the extra inserts and lyric sheets that have not been available in over 20 years! 11 tracks of raw and powerfully intense Italian hardcore clocking in at around 21 minutes. Starting with the eu’s arse side you have 5 tracks of manic aggressive hardcore punk complete with the cracking voice and teenage angst that gives the singer an especially sincere sense of urgency, add to that the discharge-ish riffs and drumming similar to the early Swedish hardcore bands and it all comes together to create a atmosphere of complete hopelessness. Flipping it over you get the first recordings from one of the most legendary Italian hardcore bands, Impact. 6 tracks of pissed off fuzzed out hardcore in its purest form. This record laid the foundation for just about every Italian hardcore and punk band that came after them. An absolute classic!" - BLACK WATER
