I Barbieri / I Fenomeni – Battle of the Bands *black* (7″ Split)

Categories: ,

In stock

Another gem is now available to the public: finally two of the greatest contemporary Italian Beat bands are captured on the same vinyl! A warning for any cool DJ around: each band comes with two dance-floor killers!!
On the ‘Barbieri’ side, you can listen to ‘Fuoriclasse’, a Garage stomp classic originally recorded by The Sonics as ‘the Hustler’ (1965), which is here sung in Italian and more powerfully than ever. The second track is ‘Ritornerai’, a cover version of ‘She Told Me Lies’ (1984) by Chesterfield Kings sung in Italian and performed with a refreshing energy: you’ll love it!

If you still happen to survive this side, turn your record and play the ‘Fenomeni’ side.
The firs track, ‘Una Donna Vera’, is the Italian version of a classic garage-psych gem ‘Action Woman’ (1967) by Mineapolis-based cult band The Litter. As a last song of the EP, ‘Acqua Sporca’ is a fantastic rendition of a classic of The Standells ‘Dirty Water’ (1966).

4 tracks. Made in 333 copies (233 copies on black vinyl and 100 on purple vinyl), this is the BLACK vinyl. Released by Area Pirata (2014).
