Nessuna Agonia Ci Farà Morire

Another big want crossed off. And this is a weird one, an obscure gem that came out from this boot shaped penisula around 1985. I'm talking about the elusive Agonia/Hydra split lp. This record is so filled with boring pacifism propaganda that it still amazes me how much I love it. Half of the running time of side A are spoken parts that deals with the typical banal and boring militant squat uberPC rethoric. Side B has just one track and it's a goddamn soporific interview with an ex alcoholist that I've never managed to listen to completely. What a waste of wax. To make it short, if we cut all those useless parts, we got left enough music to fill perfectly a 7" ep. This record would have been indeed way better if it was just a split ep. Hydra mere contribute is just a classic punkrock song with female vocals. A good one but it pales compared to the sheer brutality of the main reason why you should get a copy of this: Agonia. These guys hailing from Modena, featuring Zambo from Wretched under the skins, unleashed some of the most primitive proto-noisecore that I've ever had the pleasure to hear. Fast, violent, brief and unpredictable stuff that was waaay ahead of its time. Is this perhaps the first noisecore record ever? Before noisecore exploded around late '80s, I can't think of another band with such short, abrasive and fast "songs" in the early days of hardcore. A truly underrated classic in my opinion.
This record should be filled with tons of inserts and pamphlets about the stuff I've mentioned before. Unfortunately mine is missing'em all except for Agonia lyrics sheet which in the end is the only one I'm vaguely interested in. On the other hand, what really pisses me off is that inside the sleeve I've found a recent price tag that says that someone sold it for just 5€. And unfortunately I'm not the lucky one who paid that amount for it...
