Italian supergroup MOMBU owe a debt of influence to LIGHTNING BOLT. Drummer Antonio Zitarelli is from NEO, and baritone saxophonist Luca T. Mai is from Doklands favourites ZU. Two people is enough for a supergroup, isn't it? If not they've got a few guest musicians who occasionally join in the fun. The fun in question is a devastating mix of grinding metal, free jazz, and African drumming. Mombu work best when they stay in the centre of their influences and don't veer off too far into authenticity. Such is the case with Niger, the title track of their 2013 album. Genres collide with full force into each other in this pulsating barrage of sound. Juddering, abrasive and entirely awesome, MOMBU are making music the likes of which have never been heard before.
è una delle hit incontrastate del circuito punk do-it-yourself, e non a torto: in un crescendo delirante loro gridano "uomo pera" e i kids replicano in coro "merda!" e il rito si compie. il brano è - l'avrete capito - uomo pera, e loro sono i bolognesi LAGHETTO, autodescrittisi come i "REFUSED internati in un reparto di psichiatria". ma se state pensando a qualcosa di goliardico vi sbagliate di grosso. trattasi di hardcore creativo coi fiocchi, poco stereotipato e molto potente, forte di stacchi mirabolanti e testi geniali (vedere ss napoli football players 1982-1989, o lo straripare verbale degno di un poeta slam di la mano senza dita e l'odore dei pomeriggi).
One of those really hard to find 7"s of Italian HC/Punk of the 80s that you need up to 200 euros to purchase today. On one side you have Shockin' TV with their political HC/Punk - 9 short, raw and unpolished songs that clock in just over 9 minutes total. On the flipside Tiratura Limitata, more on the Punk side of things, offer very varied songs. They fuse Punk, Oi and Ska and within their 9 minutes of music fit "only" 3 songs. All in all, 12 songs, over 18 minutes of music on one 7"! Foldout poster cover with lyrics and photos, just like the original.
