***“FOTTUTISSMA PELICCERIA ELSA were a short-lived Italian hardcore band from the city of Gorizia. I was tipped to them by a 1983 review in Maximum Rocknroll which compared them to ‘the MEAT PUPPETS met M.D.C. in a Chilean secret police torture chamber.’ I wrote on Crud Crud ‘Fast bursts of rage segue into sludge and then into total confusion. It is like the Italian hardcore version of Tampax’s “UFO Dictator” over a full LP, but it makes sense.’ WFMU’s Fatty Jubbo once described it as ‘wow...stumbles along like a drunken horse with its feet cut off. sorta reminds of Destroy NYC or Upside Down Cross.’ The music comes from their one and only demo tape released in 1983, a rarity itself. Transferred from tape, not MP3. Mastered to vinyl by JOHN GOLDEN. Includes insert with original demo tape art work. This is a vinyl only release. There is no CD or digital download.
