HITLER SS/ TAMPAX 7"
Unlikely fan club reissue of this legendary KDB/DIY double-header from these wild Italo no-counts, originally released in 1979: the Tampax side pretty much has to be heard to be believed, “UFO Dictator” comes over like Crime-plays-The Boredoms-plays-Afflicted Man, with wailing “San Francisco’s Doomed” style six string scorch and explosive solos that come over like the DIY equivalent of Bowie’s Raw Power mix while “Tampax (In The Cunt)” comes across as the model for the hysterical avant/refusenik moves of Mattin’s Billy Bao project, with one of the most insane vocal performances ever puked by an Italian over some of the most wretched avant noise ever strangled from a guitar. And that’s just the first side! On the flip Hitler SS contribute three tracks that cross the snot of The Kids and European madmanisms with amphetamine garage, inept Ramones rips and massively crude two-second solos: “Somebody say the punk is dead” – not on this planet baby! Simply put, one of the greatest singles of all time. Highest possible recommendation!
