GDHC was a self organized network of connections, a landmark for the rising hc punk scene in Tuscany, but it was also renowned in many other places.
Bands like CCM, I Refuse it, Putrid Fever, Wardogs, Juggernaut, SdP, Auf'schlag, Lanciafiamme, and many others; fanzines like "Nuove dal Fronte" or "Brains Out GDHC Skunkzine"; labels like Belfagor and places like "Victor Charlie": all of them were the most direct expression of this music scene. Belonging to this scene meant also being against the oppressing and overwhelming society that was rising in the 80's.
Gdhc was against the massification and yuppism that were ruling in that period and it was a resource for those who feel punk like an attitude; there was a great turmoil, a spreading experimentation, a clear will to retake the present and the future, though not without contradictions.
This punk, different from today's punk, couldn't be a fashion, and the music industry, absolutely boycotted, hadn't the cleverness nor the will to get close to this world.


Band from Lucca's GranDucato Hard Core active in the early '80, playing an extreme, really violent and without half-measure HC-punk. Live on the stage Beo/vox, Petri/guitar, Gheloscio/bass and Vetra/drum instigate furious fraysand destructive pogos. They've made a DIY tape with 6 songs and they've taken part in the DIY tape compilation "Senza tregua" and "Last white christmas - Live at S.Zeno".
One of the angriest bands of the 80s italian HC scene, as you can see from their flyers against cops, the rawness of which struck a chord with Black Flag too.
Their songs speak about daily police repression and the struggle against heroin, from a critique of the family as an istitution to the hate towards all the well to do's, hypocrities and cowards who would take away all common ground (squares and bars) and who are always poised by the phone ready to dial the emergency number.

Track list: 1)The States Of Things 2)Fried Brains 3)Snakes 4)Wardogs 5)Red Hot Phones 6)M.G. 7)????
1/6 from demo- tape - 7 from "live at S.Zeno"

Auf'schlag in Doitch means 'subversion' and it's the name of a punk band from Viareggio - Lucca. Their 1st name was Offensive Action and they singed in English, but they changed the name starting to sing in Italian before in "Ossessione" and after in Auf'schlag.
They prefered to sing in Italian because their message was direct to the people listening to them, and they thought that to play punk was the only way to put on their ideas. By the way for them the most important thing was to enjoy playing.
The line-up was: Marco/voice - Giacomo/bass - Massimo/guitar - Gabriele/drums (he played with No Fun too).
At the end of August they had two concerts at the Anarchy Center in London: the 1st time they played with Mob and the 2nd time with Disorder and with a female band that wanted them to stop to play because they were going to break the drum 'cause they hadn't the drummer and they choose a person from the public : naturally he couldn't play
