Scandal – on a roll

For the ones that want to know a bit of Romanian punk history, you must listen and check to Scandal. They have been around since ’97 under the name: Speedy Freak (long time ago in a galaxy far, far away), and change the name later on in Scandal. They have released for our „scene” two materials (Live in Beci in 2001 and Resturi Din Punkomat in 2003), with drink along anthems like „Patrula” and „Bauta”. They moved in UK and with help from Spirit Of The Street Records they have a new LP: „On A Roll”, in vinyl (3 colors) digital and of course on CD. 10 tracks in the old punk rock, young and classic with a rebelious sounds and some sing along parts. Themes about working class, against media brainwash and nostalgia about old hometown plus the sincere sound of a real punk rock, is something to look for on this album. Good for sharing a beer with your mates in a pub cause…it’s just punk rock!!!. Always when i am listening to Scandal i am thinking back to my friends and back to those long summer nights, we all grew up and we will always remember the good times. Check them on scandalstreetpunk.bandcamp.com

The Adolescents vs. Svetlanas

Flix Records promo in Europe and Altercation Records proudly presents:

Ok,so you must know Adolescents if you are a punk rocker (just fyi they are into this since 1980 and past members joined Social Distortion or Agent Orange later on) yes California in the house. And yes you must remember their classic blue cover with their ADOLESCENTS logo on it. Ok, enough this is a split EP out on January 2015 on Altercation Records and promo in Europe by Flix Agency with The Svetlanas (from Mother Russia originaly but now they are livin in Italy). Hot War is the name of split, 4 tracks (2 each) in the pure punkrock sound, fast, angry and loud, with sing along choruses. Just some facts about Svetlanas (they have already shared the stage with bands like: DOA, TSOL, The Discharge and more, and yes they were banned in Russia), also they are preparing an album.Like a fresh air in the hot summer nights, you can play it loud on your car or at home. And after 25 years around in the scene Adolescents are one of the most known and respected acts so this split is a good way to start 2015. oh…and a lovely artwork for this, HOT WAR baby!!!

Thanks to Katrin and Felix

Interview exclusive: FFD (punk rock-Italy)

I know FFD for some years, but this is our first interview. From Parma with love and all over the world. Punk rock, ska and oi FFD have eveything you need. C’mon kids, stand up,stand up…. Enjoy it.

Mirceone (MPTY ZINE): Ciao guys. Congrats for the Antifa Riot album, how is life?

FFD: Hi everybody, thank’s for everything…about the band is great , that’s a good time for the FFD, but about real life everyday it’s a bad time, too much work without gaining everything, it is a time of world crisis, people find it hard to get to the end of the month…anyways, let’s talk about music…

I know that you have started in 1992, for those that still don’t know you can you please make a short bio?

yes, we’ve started in ’92, we were very young, the guitar player was only 13 and me I was the older and I was only 17. At that time we were the youngest punk band in Italy and for people was fun to see 4 punk kids, drunk with crested and spiky hears, so we started to tour italy very soon…in ’94 we pressed our first demo tape and was sold out (500copies) in only one week, so in 1995 we self our 1st 7″ and for about a couple of oi!-punk distributors after a few months it was sold everywhere , from USA to Japan (obviously only in the punk shops and mail-orders ) In 1996 we started a collaboration that continues to this day with los fastidios ad we sheared a split lp „hasta la baldoria” and from there we played more than 1000gigs , in italy an in europe, we played from in all of the squats in Italy to the big outdoors summer festivals we sheared the stage with a lot’s of bands…20 years is a lot’s of time, if someone wants can find all about us in the www.

You will start a mini tour with this album. Any news and info about this?

We’ve already  done the first part of this promo tour, almost 15 gigs in all the parts of Italy during the winter, and now (6 april) we start again another mini-tour with 10 gigs during spring and summer in Italy as well.After that we would like to play some gigs in europe and we’d like to come to play in your area, we never been there.

Please make a me top 5 of your favorite bands.

It’s a very hard question, we like a lot’s of kinds of music ,from oi! to h.c.,and from skinhead reggae to northern soul but just for answer  5-Kortatu, 4-The Addicts, 3-Symarip, 2-Cock Sparrer 1-The Clash

Los Fastidios, Banda Bassotti just to name a few of the bands that have appeared with you along the time…name one band that you want to have a split ep.

Talking about dreams…The Clash

How’s the punk scene in Parma.

Not so good and not so bad, there are some good bands, but we wish there was more collaboration. It’s more than 20 years that we organize gigs and oi! punk events in Parma, but the most of the other bands wants only play and they are not available if you ask for a help

FFD2012_official_net

Any news with One Step Records for a new album?

May be… ANTIFA RIOT has been realized 4 month ago, and it’s our first collaboration with one step, we are finding good so we’d like continue to work with them.

Name 3 things without you can’t live

Music,food,booze

Now is the time: RedSka or Talco?

RedSka, just because we are friends, but I think that Talco is a good band as well, but not our  favorite
