The Great (neverending) Catalogue Update Part 10: Banda Bassotti, Non Servium, Redska, United Struggle…

Nothing brings out the authoritarian opi in me like the German volksmob going wild in the streets.

Its late, Im tired, hungry, and in a hurry to get home. Unfortunately, a gang of black/red/yellow flag waving monkeys has decided to step out of their cars and have some sort of epileptic seizure in the middle of the street. The idea of getting out of the car, telling them to fuck off out of the way, and possibly while at it serve myself to a flag is quickly discarded because…well, its like 50 of them against 1 of me. Confrontation discarded, all I can think of is: where is the police? Why is there not a horde of cops imposing law and order through brutal violence so that the good citizens of Goettingen can get to their homes in peace?!

Anyways…the great catalogue update shows no mercy and will apparently never end. The next round….some music with which to hopefully drown out the drunken, nationalist party hordes outside, is outlined below. Otherwise you can just head directly to the music section of our website…

*As was the case last month with their LPs, we have now finally re-stocked most of the entire back catalogue of Banda Bassotti releases on CD! So, for those of you who still understand music as something existing outside of the realm of the purely digital, here you go…

(Vecci Cani Bastardi is of course also available on LP, released by us :-) )

(Btw…if you are wondering why the LPs suddenly became more expensive…the first batch we were able to get through trade, unfortunately the second batch we had to buy. So it was either for a few Euros more, or taking them off the site. We thought this was better than nothing).

*Also classic, much loved and hence for the last few months no longer available…Non Servium CDs. Long story short…all three Non Servium releases are again in stock!

*Finally, in the new release category, Redskas latest production in LP format, and the latest release from Duesseldorfs finest United Struggle:

Banda Bassotti: Classics On Vinyl / New Release „Siamo Guerriglia“

A few exciting additions this week to the music catalogue, all of them from the band that has stood the test of time…Banda Bassotti.

Their new album, „Siamo Guerriglia“ is being released on CD this week, and is available for discounted pre-order immediately. This is interesting enough, but even more exciting is that what are in our opinion the two greatest and most classic albums of the band are finally being re-released on vinyl. These are of course their debut album „Figli della Stessa Rabbia“ and „Avanzo de Cantiere.“

All three are available as of today and for one week as discounted pre-orders, and will be shipped as of 19.3.

In our humble opinion „Figli…“ is a great album, and „Avanzo de Cantiere“ is simply one of the top 5 all time greatest albums of the Redskin scene. It was formative to the cultural scene that was to come, and as all true classic albums do…it stands the test of time. Sure, sometimes you hear it more, sometimes less, and sometimes not at all, but you will never get tired of it or reject it. Few releases can do that. This is an exclusive category, shared with albums such as „Kick Over the Statues“ (The Redskins), „Mai Morirem“ (Opcio K-95), the original Brigada Flores Magon album, and a few select others.

The music, the inspiring lyrics, simply an all time classic.

Highlights (if we can call them that, since there really isnt a poor song on this release)…

Luna Rossa…

Avanzo de Cantiere, live in Rome…

Potere al Popolo…

Opcio K-95 „Reneix“ LP and Zartako „Primero Nosotros“ CD… Out Now on Fire and Flames Music

Opcio K-95, „Reneix“ LP

Zartako, „Primero Nosotros“ Live CD

In the case of OPCIO K-95, after over four years, Barcelonas longest standing, finest, and most engaged streetpunk/oi bands is back with another production! These are melodic, anthemic, and powerful songs played excellently. If you have somehow managed to not yet have heard of this band, which is after all by now one of the longest standing antifascist oi/streetpunk bands around, please dont take our word for it, listen for yourselves below. The vinyl LP comes with a printed sleeve!

ZARTAKO on the other hand marks a new addition to the Fire and Flames family, not only as a band, but also musically. This is yet another new direction, in the form of antifascist NYC style hardcore from Bilbao. This live CD excellently captures the power, intensity, and rage of this band. It is furthermore an excellent and clean recording, and the CD comes in a digipack case! For those who want to experience Zartako live not only on your stereo but also in person and for a good cause, they will be playing in Berlin on the 29th of December for RASH Berlin, and in Göttingen on the 30th of December as part of an evening in solidarity with antifascists from Russia (both shows supported by Enraged Minority).

Enough talking, meet the bands:
