The Bradipos IV - Lost Waves CD digipack
April 2019

After two years from their last EP entitled "The Partenophonic Sound Of The Bradipos Four", the surf combo has gone back to the studio, influenced from their Californian tour. More than the Ocean the inspiration came from the desert met to reach Las Vegas and Joshua Tree.
An instro album more than a surf one, even if their opening track is a cover originally written by Ray Hunt and played for the first time in 1961 from the Surfmen. Two more cover, 'A Heartful Of Nothing' written by Chris Barfield and 'Siboney' written by Ernesto Lecuona, among nine new and original songs.
Not so close to the classical surf, rather with a personal touch, that has been a trademark for this Italian band from the beginning.
An album dominated by the minor tones and so a little bit melancholic, as the artwork remind us, and always well-planted feed on the Mediterranean origins

The Rock'n'Roll Kamikazes - Campari & Toothpaste LP/CD
March 2019

Broadcash feat. Bobby Solo - Broadcash plays Cash featuring Bobby Solo 10"

Everyone knows Johnny Cash - he's an icon. Love for the Man in Black comes in many forms anyway he's unforgettable.

His personality preceded his musical career, spanning over 50 years of American history and adding a dose of danger - a must-have ingredient of country and rock'n'roll. He's played in front of jailbirds and collaborated with the greats - including Bob Dylan and Joe Strummer - always maintaining his distinctive style.

This year is the 50th anniversary of the release of Live at Folsom Prison (a song weaved into Cash's identity) and the perfect occasion to celebrate it, with the advent of a new group: Bobby Solo and BroadCash, a group which has played the Johnny Cash songbook for 10 years throughout Italy, keeping the Sun Records roots alive.

Bobby Solo needs no introduction. A huge fan of country and rock'n'roll, he was one of the first to bring the music to Italy throughout his long career. Asked about Johnny Cash, Bobby reminisces: "Ah, Johnny…I met him at the Rammstein American base in Germany in the 1960s. He was playing with the Carter family, with the Statler Brothers on vocals and Carl Perkins on guitar. He was magnetic".

He met BroadCash in a sold out, sweaty gig in Pisa where he was the guest star. A bond started followed in quick succession by the recording of four old-school songs: I Walk the Line, Cry Cry Cry, Folsom Prison Blues and Big River, released on limited-edition vinyl on the Area Pirata label. Four songs born in the hills and the fields which unite Italy and the USA, a heartfelt tribute which will raise the roof at the next show

Barmudas - Rock The Barmudas 7"
October 2018

BARMUDAS were born and raised in the BARmuda district in Florence's old town, the immaginary triangular neighborhood still unknown to the hordes of hungry zombi-tourists looking for cheap italian food, style and art; a place infested and hounted with outsiders, losers, boozers, and strange people with poor taste in look, music and artistic stuff (often disappearing into the void after passing the night getting high in the area). Barmudas is today the last bastion against the invasion of hipsters, indie posers, coffee shakers, cover bands, fashion influencers and snob-intellectual people crowding downtown Florence. No wonder the band that shares the district's name has got just a few and simple guiding principles:
An old and genuine recipe, but be sure to double check the dosage...
So, here comes the band's debut single, made of two killer tracks, like bands used to do in Slade, Sweet and T-Rex times. Now as in those days we have a wild R'n'R opening on the A side while on the B side we find a wonderful ballad that will make you shake your ass with its lilting rhythm!

The Liars - Never Looked Back CD digipack
September 2018

Since then, the power trio has played their own brand of garage/psych/rock’n’roll and NEVER LOOKED BACK, bringing to the new millennium electric shocks coupled to fresh melodies with obscure/abrasive lyrics. It’s definitely the Liars' sound, but it’s different...

May 2018

A blend which hones the distinctive contributions of each band member, inspiring and influencing each other, to create, via a special alchemy, the unmistakable style of The Mads!!

Killer Klown - Crappy Circus LP
May 2018

They define their music (inspired by the STOOGES, the CRAMPS, the 60s, PUNK'77 and B-MOVIES) as "wild-doped garage-punk'n'roll". Their lyrics are irreverent and/or steeped in violence, just like their live gigs, which have contributed to the band’s "negative" reputation.
Here's their new album, among freaks and acrobats, where to taste if the definition is true!

The Celibate Rifles - Roman Beach Party LP

The Trip Takers - Jumper Blues 7"
April 2018

Here are the detailed and deep liner notes by Franco Lys Di Mauro to describe this new bright single by The Trip Takers!

THE TRIP TAKERS – Jumper Blues / Another One (Area Pirata)

We have the new Trip Takers’ work in our hands. Small and round. A black vinyl inside a flashy cover. On each side, there are two and a half centimetres of grooves from which a spring of crystalline sixties waters flows.
Moreover, they are from the Peloritani Mountains, who would have bet on it!

Jumper Blues and Another One continue in the likely, masterly recovery of the folk-punk that had already characterized the tracks of their splendid debut last year.
Harmonica, a bit of fuzz, Vox organ and faultless vocal harmonies, all aimed at recreating an almost perfect time bubble in which the silhouettes of Five Canadians, Knickerbockers, Marauders or Little Boy Blues seem to reverberate. The Trip Takers shake it with cynical self-confidence that blasts open a magical and stormy sixties world.

The music of this Sicilian quintet has a primordial essence that the band profess to be proud of channelling. They skilfully protect it from modern age influences, which could jeopardise their music. Instead, the music finds itself a place amidst the enchanted and remote beauties of the vintage universe.

A parallel and armoured world where, avoiding the clash with everyday life and its gray-poison, colourful dreams predominate and leave their decisive yet deceptive imprint.

The Trip Takers have created a present day sensation that in times past occurred in bands like Optic Nerve, Offhooks or Backdoor Men.
So be generous, buy and enjoy it!

Franco "Lys" Dimauro

The Sick Rose - Someplace Better LP/CD digipack
March 2018

To celebrate its 35th birthday, The Sick Rose releases a new studio album! SOMEPLACE BETTER is the group's seventh LP, and this time the record was produced by American singer, songwriter, producer Ken Stringfellow (R.E.M., Posies, Big Star, Markey Ramone Band).
For the first time, the band has recorded only originals. The eleven songs are the sum of all The Sick Rose's musical influences - from the Garage Rock of the early days, to the R'n'R of the 2nd album Shaking Street, on to the Power Pop characterising the group's later records. The new album is partly inspired by the sound of bands from the early 1980s, such as Records, 20/20 and Shoes.
SOMEPLACE BETTER comes out of a constant search for new ways of expression, while ignoring transient fashions and knowing always how to be in the right place at the wrong time!

Plutonium Baby - BLAST! Sci-Fi Music for Contemporary Freaks LP/CD digipack
March 2018

Universes created to beat boredom, subhuman races, freak twins and psychopathic healers - here is BLAST! Sci-fi music for contemporary maniacs! Garage-psych frenzy without all the useless tinsel, punk attitude and lashing of spastic power pop. My Universe opens the A-side and it immediately puts things straight. Bored aliens having fun creating worlds where they then end up trapped. No Time briefly confirms the psych-garage atmosphere, and soon after Dexter & Debra Morgan slams you into textbook surf sounds. Twin Freaks is a lysergic bubble. With twin souls escaping from the asylum. But which human species do they belong to? What kind of heart do they have? The story continues on the B-side... Journey time: 30 minutes on planet Earth or 30 seconds for those coming from Pluto. Twelve tracks, mixed by the excellent Wolfman Bob (Ultra Twist, BMC), which also include a couple of alternative versions of tracks released on the now unavailable music cassette "Weird World Outtakes and Other Cadavers Exquis"

The Smoking Bones - Authorize Yourself CD digipack
January 2018

A year after "Moods", the debut EP of the Italian band, The Smoking Bones release "Authorize Yourself", a 9-track album distributed by the independent label "Area Pirata".
Nine songs that merge sounds from the second half of the '70s and atmosphere of the Scandinavian scene in the beginning of millennium.
The topics covered in this new work concerning the man 's relationship with the rules that he impose to himself and to the community around him, creating limits and boundaries that contribute to the poorness of individuality.
"Authorize Yourself" wants to be an incentive to get out of the box, questioning your world and its certainties, an incentive to break those rules to escape from the globalization of personality.

The project "The Smoking Bones" was born in April 2016, with the intent to create a Scandinavian style r 'n r band. Line-up is made by Lorentz and GG on guitars, Mark on drums, Danz on bass and Dave on vocals.
Their sound is a mix of late '70s punk,hard rock and rock ‘n roll, influenced by the north european scene. They recorded their first EP "Moods" in september (out in 14 Jan for Area Pirata Rec,Double Face Rec and Party Tonite) followed by an intense live activity in several italian cities.

The sequence of songs chronologically follows the compositional path of this historical group of the Italian neo-psychedelic scene, photographing its evolution and maturation. A definitive collection that perfectly reflects the spirit of an artistic and human project that flirted with success without ever reaching it, fiercely uncompromisingly, in the midst of joy and sorrow, sadness and happiness, past and future

Maurizio Campisi - Everybody Wants To Know (La mia vita con i Sick Rose) Book
November 2017

Wide Hips '69 - The Gang Bang Theory LP
October 2017

GBT opens up to several musical influences, varying from punk to soul with a touch of glam, and tells about love, hate, anger, pride, serial wankers, coprophagists and toyboys, all that has scarred the band so much over the years to be marked on vinyl grooves! We find a small tribute to the SHAGGS and a proper ghost track dedicated to MR INRI, composed by a mysterious figure who, ashamed of the collaboration, has preferred the anonymity (GoodbyeBoozy, Agoo Records, Ammonia Rec.)

The Trip Takers - The Trip Takers EP 12"
October 2017

"The Trip Takers" project starts from the bases left in the mid-60s by bands such as Beatles and Byrds, to incorporate psychedelic atmospheres that expand the sound, making it addictive, thanks to organ and sitar on the front line. The instrumentation used and a recording technique deliberately far from the digital, but more inclined to the effects produced by the analogic, give a birth to a disc that, even if fresh and immediate, it's far from contemporary productions to create incredibly authentic vintage atmospheres

The Classmates - Between The Lines LP
September 2017

We're proud to announce the release of The Classmates' new album! Soon after the great 2015 debut, in January and December 2016 the band from Bologna has finally decided to get back to studio and, thanks to Matt Bordin of the Outside Inside Studio in Montebelluna (TV), has completed the 10 tracks composing this album. The mastering by Carl Staff - Staff Mastering - in Chicago is just the cherry on top. "Between the lines" delivers us a grown-up band which moves among the twists and turns of the "pre-punk", tracing back the teachings of the garage's forefathers until reaching that punk and power pop sound that has made the Buzzcocks who they are- despite here sounding speeded and blended. A few ballads don't miss out the chance of sounding just signed by Paul Collins!

April 2017

Born 3 years ago, Capt Crunch & the Bunch are finally back here to present their debut album!
Recorded fully analogue at Orfanotrofio Studio in Lorenzana (Pisa) - Italy. They got exactly the sound who were looking for, mixing the musical tastes of all the musicians involved. So they decide to share the vinyl in an Italian side (sung in their native language) and an English side. Inspired, funny and sarcastic their songwriting.
Their heart is still beat for Dr. Feelgood, and we can see that from the artwork too, but English freakbeat, soul and R&B are part of the cocktail!

T-Shirt Cheetah Chrome Motherfuckers / Motherfuckers

For those of you who - just like us - loved CCM and still do after so long, we decided to reprint one of their historical T-shirts, in total agreement with the band members.: This T-shirt exactly reproduces the one they used to sell during their second European tour in 1985, sporting the infamous "MFer" graffiti on its back!

Fabrizio Della Porta / Alberto Ezzu / Salvatore D'Urso 'Ursus' - No Strange e Sogni Correlati Book
March 2017

This Italian book sets out to identify and analyse the significant presence of a PSYCHEDELIC idea in yesterday, today and (we hope) tomorrow culture, in order to give a picture (as complete as possible) of this musical and artistic language.

Set like a trip between imaginary planets symbolizing the life of all humanity, 'No Strange e Sogni correlati' is a very varied and complex study, which moves away from the clichés and stereotypes dictated by time.
Many musicians and poets of various nationalities and from different periods gave their contribution to the book in order to reconnect a common path which, starting from the 60s, comes up to our present time.

NO STRANGE edited this work together with the journalist Fabrizio Della Porta, but were also assisted by quite a few collaborators

Effervescent Elephants - Ganesh Sessions CD
March 2017

In 2011 The Effervescent Elephants start recording an album with Claudio Rocchi, but once finished they remain in the studio and decide to record some of those anthems they had played all around during the 80s, along with some previously unreleased songs. The result is what the band consider their musical testament for different reasons.
So, intense nights, very oriental, hence the title of 'Ganesh Sessions', aiming to the Indian and Eastern music that have been always their trademark

Cheetah Chrome Motherfuckers - The Furious Era 1979-1987 DLP / DCD
March 2017

Pisa, Italy, 1979

That's where set its pace one of those cult HC-bands destined to leave an unhealed scar in the still-yet-to-come international musical landscape: furious lyrics full-throated by an out of control voice, a fast as lighting abrasive guitar with no place for any melodies but still abruptly original, along with a drumming ready to massacre ears...CCM (a.k.a. Cheetah Chrome Motherfuckers)

Their existence, corresponding with the most prolific HC momentum, ends up in 1987 and their two EPs, the split tape, the LP and the few other scattered songs are by far sufficient to single them out as a standing point and a reference for anyone interested in untamed music.

This release finally fills a gap: their sold out records had never been reprinted so far, thus reaching crazy prices among collectors, while even lame bootleg copies had started to jump out of nowhere.
Since the early start we worked with the two original sound engineers (from West Link Recorders) who had toured and shared all with the band, this "refreshing" of master tapes giving a new incredible shine to the original sound.
We decided as well to include in the package pics, gig flyers and even extracts from lyrics.
Members of the band supported this project since the early start with the common mission to bring back to life a palette of that music which used to correspond with everyday living.

For those who luckily had a chance to see them live maybe moshing at one of their sped-up songs, but also for those others fascinated by the mysterious area surrounding their legend.


Vinyl Edition: 2LP, 140g black vinyl, gatefold cover with double inner sleeve containing pictures, lyrics and a "Discography" insert, along with English/Italian biography.

CD Edition: DCD with a 36-page booklet, plus an unreleased song, hardcover

Preorder availble through Bandcamp! Release date: 06th March 2017

Mods! - Do You Think That Money 7"
December 2016

Alex Loggia (guitar of the Statuto) and Tony Face Bacciocchi (drums, to name just few bands, of Not Moving, Link Quartet and Lilith) create a theatrical-musical show called Mods! to present all around Italy the story of that subculture, but now it becomes a vinyl single as well, in a strictly limited edition of 300 copies!
This is actually a double sided, as we're used to say when both songs of the single are stormin' dancefloor!
'Do You Think That Money' on one side where the great songwriting of Luca Re (The Sick Rose), along with Alex, meets our duo plus and everything is embellished from Fay Hallam keyboards (Makin 'time, Prime Movers and Fay Hallam Trinity). A r&b track straight out of a smoky Londoner pub from mid 70s.
The other side sees a brilliant cover of the debut solo Curtis Mayfield, once left The Impressions, a great UK hit, rather than US. Special Guests here are also Paolo 'The Angelo' Parpaglione (The Bluebeaters) on sax and Zak Loggia (The Minis), son of Alex, on guitar.
Produced by Alex Loggia and recorded / mixed at Studio wood. It would be a crime to miss this single!!

The Bone Machine - Sotto Questo Cielo Nero LP
October 2016

The Bone Machine is the dark side, desperate and grotesque of Italian rock'n'roll.
In this new album , the band always digs deeper in the dirt of the marsh mud revealing new stories - such as blood soaked dreams - that you can listen to by lovers and the drunken monkeys patrons of the cafe of the cemetery.
13 tracks , 3 taken from the latest 7" "Noi Siamo zombies", in which the masked band pours 17 years of wild freedom and madness.
Once again the Rockabilly psycho, the Garage Punk and the Blues blend with the texts engraved with nails on the toilet walls of the cemetery cafe overlooking hell.
The sound is enriched with new fiery elements and collaborations proving that you do not travel through just one kind of music: Violin , Organ , Harmonica , Sax and Piano accompanying guitar, bass and drums among the dark alleys of a maze in which to lose to meet our beloved / hated demons.
The album starts with "Rock'n'Roll o Morte" whose beginning is a brief tribute to the late 50s Desperate Rock'n'roll, "Rock'n'Roll Guitar" by Johnny Knight (1958). The rest is to explore how the depths of an ocean that hides wrecks and tells the story of a never forgotten past . The cover is designed by Gerlanda di Francia. 180 gr. vinyl, CD attched and handnumbered!

Le Carogne - Triodo LP/CD
September 2016


As by now linked to a sort of numerical count of their works and having published an album entitled "Second" in 2013, it was clear they wouldn't have missed a chance to come out with TRIODO", the third album by the Ligurian band known as LE CAROGNE .
Given the considerable financial effort aimed at publishing both the CD and the longtime dreamt 12 " version, the band sought the help of a line of labels spanning all over Italy, including newborns like Chono Records and Party Tonite as well as the historical Area Pirata and Rude Records, who promptly answered the call of the band and gave voice to these 9 tracks of garage-punk and other noisy r'n'r (as just quoted from an old interview) suspended in a dreamy 60s haze, featuring an Arthur Brown- in-speed organ line. The lyrics, in Italian, keep a focus on distress, disillusionment and provocation. The icing on the cake is finally represented by the graphics and in particular the beautiful cover art designed and hand painted by Riccardo Rossetti himself.
Recorded and mixed by Matteo "Mr. Dula "Dolla at Dula's Studio di Diano Marina (IM) in 2015/2016.
Mastering by Giovanni "Meniak" Nebbia at Ithil World Studio of Imperia in 2016

Big Mountain County - Anachronicle CD digipak
April 2016

One year after their debut album ("Breaking Sound" Gas Vintage Records / Goodfellas), the Big Mountain County is finally back with a live record that's a bombshell, in the name of a particular kind of psych-rock, among the best in Italy.
"Anachronicle", recorded on November 2015,  is made of 9 songs (approximately 50 minutes) all taken from their last album, except "Brain Machine" e "My Time", which come from their previous 7"EP and one unreleased song,  "Breakable"

The Bidons - Clamarama CD digipak
April 2016

Twelve pure garage rock bullets. Raids from screaming fuzz, piano, organ, theremin and sax create a sound structure influenced by the punk urgency, the power pop impulsivity, the surf carefreeness and the rough essentialness of rock and roll. "Clamarama" offers a twine of brash and percussive intrigues, a sonic explosion of disinhibition, sex, insanity and colours at a Sixties party!

Blackboard Jungle Silver Drops On Jesus' Skull (And More) 1986-1989 CD digipak
April 2016

Area Pirata returns again to dip into the 80s with an Italian band from Brindisi. They didn't follow the popular garage/psychedelic wave but were devoted to a rough-but-melodic sound, kind of American roots rock with a punkish temperament. In 1989 they recorded "Silver Drops On Jesus' Skull", a mini-LP released by Federico Guglielmi's High Rise. The journalist supervised the studio production too and now arranged (along with the band) this first reissue on CD enriched with a lot of unreleased tracks

With founding member Leighton Koizumi at the lead the Morlocks put to rest the comparison to "revival" and "reunion"outfits.

Believing that you are only as good as your last record, the Morlocks have produced one of those rare singles , a double A side ! In other words "all killer , no filler"!

Temporal Sluts - Modern Slavery Protocol CD digipack
April 2016

Finally. After more than 20 years, Temporal Sluts are putting out their very first full length album: Modern Slavery Protocol, 10 songs of the same furious punk rock they've been playing since day one.

Born in Como in 1995, Temporal Sluts are veterans of the Italian punk rock scene with several 7s and EP's released, a lot of European tours, and shows supporting legendary bands like Leaving Trains, Hypnotics, Humpers and Radio Birdman. Their name has always been well known among underground punk/rock&roll fanatics.
Temporal Sluts' line-up has been through a lot of changes during the last 20 years, but since 2014 they are rock solid: founding members Rob Slut and Killer Tony - voice and drums, Luca Slut - lead guitar, Steve - bass, Miguel Basetta - rhythm guitar.
Modern Slavery Protocol was recorded at New Recorded Studio in Como by Frederic Mazzei (guitarist of the Leeches, good ol' friends of Temporal Sluts). It's a straight in your face album, fast guitar-driven punk rock, certainly influenced by Stooges, Dead Boys, Saints, Lazy Cowgirls, Adolescents and New Bomb Turks, but definitely 100% sweaty Temporal Sluts.

The Link Quartet - Quattro Pezzi Facili 7"EP
February 2016

The Link Quartet created "Quattro Pezzi Facili" with Silvia Molinari, an experienced singer with an incredible emotional charge. In search of the perfect balance between a signature instrumental energy and the intrinsic talent of Molinari, the group was inspired to reinvent foreign songs in Italian. The discovery of unreleased 60s scores allowed the group to explore and play with the sounds of that era but with an ear free to create something without precedent. Paolo Apollo Negri, Renzo Bassi, and Alberto Maffi created modern arrangements while Marco Murtas and Molinari interpreted the lyrics. The results are the imagings of Love Buzz (Shocking Blue), I'm A Woman (Shocking Blue), and Back Up Against The Wall (Blood Sweat And Tears). Completing the collection is a reinvention of the Ombretta Colli 1969 take of Harley Davidson (Serge Gainsbourg

V/A - L'Ottava Vita - Tributo a Claudio Rocchi CD digipack
October 2015

Claudio Rocchi, poet, thinker, musician, mystic, director, traveller and explorer of new and unexpected dimensions. He was a key figure in Italian culture, writing pages of great depth and rarefied beauty. His works contributed to shape the conscience and spirit of many people for several generations.
A tribute from musicians and non-musicians whose lives have been crossed by his genius. An idea which was born when he still walked the roads of this world, in what he defined his "seventh life", concluded when he crossed the threshold that brought him to the eighth life, the last we are allowed to know

No Strange - Universi e Trasparenze 10"
June 2015

Thirty years ago we did our first LP and that's how the No Strange (post No-Strani and post tape self production) discographic trip started and we achieved this also thanks to Toast Records , which was born officially at the same time.
On this 10", our first out on this format, we decided to pay tribute to musicians that have been formative to us.

This is the first time we play tracks we didn't write but these aren't just covers... at all! They are personal interpretations of tracks that represents our roots. Tracks that are coming from the most intense period of our existence: the period between 60s and 70s. Distant souls that are always by our side, tinted with dreams. Psychedelic souls in self contemplation... for all their life!

The Bone Machine - Giù Nel Mio Inferno Lp
June 2015

The album has 12 tracks with rough, spare, deep and hollow sound. Primitive Rock'n'Roll, rotten blues, psychotic rockabilly, wild garage-punk blend, as a diabolic potion, with hallucinated and grotesque stories soaked with demons between a horrible nightmare and real life. Lyrics in Italian sang with scratching and harsh voice. The artwork is by Rocco Lombardi and inspired to the lyric of the title track "Gi nel mio inferno". 2 years later, in June 2015, finally comes out on Area Pirata Records, in vinyl and with revised artwork (limited numbers of 300 LPs including 150 LPs with splatter colors

June 2015

"Pearls At Swine" is the new album of The Strange Flowers, to be released on June 15 2015 by Area Pirata Records. It comes after a 20-year carrier spent speaking all tongues of psychedelia, a term that in the case of the Strange Flowers indicates an attitude more than a style. In the Strange Flowers of "Pearls At Swine", dilatations, even if still present, leave room to the fairy visions of paisley-pop, to the irony of beat, to the impetus of garage-rock, all dressed with the new sound given by a line up that now includes Rhodes bass and organ

No frills like their music, they introduce themselves with this debut album ready to burn any stage! Catchy songs with elementary and explosive riff, a rhythm section that makes a wall of sound and abrasive and melodic vocals. Their merit is certainly to be able to let play fresh and contemporary the '76 Punk sound which has its roots in the sixties Garage!

The Mads - What I Need / Virtual World 7"

Hi-Profilic Reverb/Fuzz/Organ driven tunes as ya all wanna meet here on Surfadelic. Their sound creates an CINEMATIC surf experience like it was made for some lost 70's Hong Kong KUNG-FU flick, alternative soundtrack for "Enter The Dragon" or some Takashi Miike KILLER extravaganza. One of the best new surfin' stuff I heard lately, so don't you dare miss it! Say... WATANG!

Fuck Knight - Puke All Over Themselves Cd digipack
February 2015

After a stint in New York City as drummer for Dan Melchior's Broke Revue, GD Mills (aka Sir Gregory Fuck Knight) packed up two drums, a cymbal, two sticks and a microphone and headed west to Minneapolis on an art school scholarship.
In the aftermath of a violent 'destruction of school property' performance which ultimately lead to his expulsion, Mills formed Fuck Knights in 2007 with bassist Joe Holland on the very same day as the I-35W bridge collapse.
Basement keggers soon became crowded bar gigs, word-ofmouth became press coverage, self-made cassettes became 7" records released on regional and then European labels (including an EP recorded by Gary Burger from The Monks), and shared bills with the likes of King Khan and BBQ Show, Greenhornes, Black Diamond Heavies, Brimstone Howl, Human Eye, Jacuzzi Boys, Lover!, Monotonix, and Peelander-Z became tours throughout the U.S. Great Lakes/Rust Belt region. "Fully endorsed" by Maximumrocknroll and described by Mongrel Zine as "way cool psychedelic garage punk", Fuck Knights' raging, ragged rock and roll, according to Smashin' Transistors, "pays homage to the 60s but doesn't care to sit around and play dress up because it's been proven that jumping in a time machine is corny".
They just wanna play loud, probably get drunk and maybe get laid (or get arrested trying). Featuring Mills on lead vocals and an upright 2-piece drum kit, Holland on bass, guitarist Benjamin Sommers- Bachman, and David C. Steffens on trumpet and harp, the band is gearing up to release its first full-length, "Let It Bleed", on Pesaro, Italy-based Boss Hoss Records in June of 2011.
In 2013 they take part to the compilation "The Wildest Things In The World" along with The Frowning Clouds (Australia), The Wildmen (Italy) and The Hollywood Sinners (Spain).

In exclusive distribution!!

Le Muffe now debut with their first recording entitled "Penna, Tornio e Salame": more than 52 minutes for a total of 14 songs literally shot in the face to the listener!!! This is an album with a lot of irons in the fire and several facets, something absolutely original and unusual that penetrates you, conquer you and you don't spring more!!

An obsessive organ, a hoarse and powerful voice, Italian lyrics which don't talk about sun and sea but about this rotten society and the deep-seated evil within each of us, all faced with a lucidity and poetic astounding!!!
It's one of the few truly successful attempts to keep together Beat, Garage and some tints of Prog with the love to the most visceral Blues and Punk. The first reference is Arthur Brown in amphetamine but listening carefully there is much, much more!!!

The Secret Tape - The Secret Tape 7"Ep + CD
November 2014

A new record for Area Pirata and White zoo that is a debut and rebirth for Secret Tape.

Strawman - Strawman CD
September 2014

In exclusive distribution!!

The Strawman started at the end of 2012 in La Spezia, thanks to Gregorio Maggiani (Greg - voice), Paolo Gnaga (guitar - former of Fall Out, King Mastino and Radiozero), Alberto Caruso (Aboo - bass guitar) and Andrea Chiavacci (drums - ex Made).

Right from the beginning all four members have the same idea to produce a lively garage rock that shakes hands with an American 70's sound. However without any discretion towards the psychedelic sounds and the late 80's Seattle sound.

After some very positive live performances that helps the group achieve gigs on some of the most important stages of local clubs and bars (Skaletta Rock Club, Shake Club, Swamp Club, also a very impressive performance held at a summer festival in La Spezia BOSS) the band decide in 2014 to give birth to their first namesake album thanks to a very precious collaboration with Area Pirata.

The whole album is entirely written and composed by the band and sung in English. For the registration the group turned to Maurizio Dazzi who has phonic studio that is very much valued in their city. Dazzi was responsible for the registration, mixing and mastering. Attention must be made to the presence of Lungo 's voice that appears in some of the songs (singer of Radiozero, Polvere di Pinguino and others) as backing vocals.

Curiosity: The name of the band holds homage to the namesake of the song from Lou Reed in the album "New York".

June 2014

In exclusive distribution!!

Watang! is a surf-instro project wanted by El Sentenza, banjo player from the Legendary Kid Combo, together with Marla'O, guitar player from the all-female italian garage queens The Cleopatras.
This project was born at the beginning of last summer '13, with the help of Barba San, from the Italian beat band The Albino's, Cecilia Ann, famous bass based indie-pendent songwriter and Mimmì, one of the best and eclectic drummers of the Garda Lake area.

The former idea was to create a standard surf combo, then after a couple of weeks in the basement, the project took a different shape, mixing the musical tastes of all the musicians involved. The original surf sound took a different direction, moving towards the surf revival of the 90's, the garage beat revival, and the traditional Oriental melodies from the Far East area.

All the imaginary and the artwork was inspired by the oriental Z movies, martial arts and fancied mysterious stories from ancient east.
The band wear original Kung Fu kimonos and the (dragon) ladies are dressed like famous almond eyed movies star actresses. Among the main influences of the band you can find The Bomboras, Ghastly Ones, Satan's Pilgrims, mixed with The Ventures, Takeshi Terauchi, The Fuzztones, Gravedigger V, Roky Erikson, The Pixies, The Cramps, Link Wray, Johnny Thunders, the Gun Club, Dick Dale, Question Mark and the Mysterians and more!

White Pagoda - You should be right / Bride dog 7"
April 2014

In exclusive distribution!!

Before White Pagoda there were Joey Quebradas (a very angry rock'n'roll band), once disbanded, The Gil, Luz and 3, slowly transformed it into White Pagoda, finally complete with the arrival of The Cri ( a.k.a. Johnny The Folk) who took part to the band in the early months of 2007.
"Sofa" the first album, goes out on 2008 : D.I.Y. , recorded at Dith Studio, 11 songs for the total of around 19 minutes (may be even less..).
Since that moment, the four musicians started playing through Tuscany and more and more beyond the borders of the region.

In 2009 begins the collaboration with the Ufo Hi Fi label producer Danilo Silvestri in Rome, to record their second Album " Chair Evolution ( not design)", out in the early 2010: 15 tracks between punk and power-pop styles, with the lovely help of Tornado Ride Records for the distribution and sell.
In 2012 White Pagoda crew get new pre-production sessions started, under the supervision of Paolo Dondoli, for the successive recording at Damiano Magliozzi's Gorilla Punch Studio, Siena, on February 2013.

In March 2014 they co-released this single along with the Spectre Records, giving its distribution to Area Pirata Records and RocketMan Records. It's a nice taste of their forthcoming album!

Punk Rock? Yes, but not only that!
There's much other and, for sure, many other influences on their sound..and if "punk rock" would be only an excuse to give a different "dress" to pop songs?

The artwork is made by Guitar Boy, designer from Rome and noisy guitarist of the garage band of The Intellectuals

No Strange - Armonia Vivente 2Cd digipack
March 2014

The new opera recorded is called Armonia Vivente and it is concepted like a natural sequel of the previous Cristalli Sognanti; the sound since the first impact don't deserve the expectations: the world described by No Strange is always liquid, cosmic, lysergic; the 16 tracks (two of them recorded on a live conceit) are a trip out of time, which is referred to the big indo-european tradition and the avant-garde and experimental, connected to the most acid folk and popular melodies. ARMONIA VIVENTE is this and more... On the cd edition are added 4 bonus track extracted by the early No Strange period ('83-'84) out on that time only in demo-tape version!

Killer Penis - King Of Slaps Cd
February 2014

KILLER PENIS was born as a "TURBOJUGEND" band-style project in winter of 2011, created by Marvin (vocals) and GG (rhythm guitar).
After several attempts and several lineup changes, they finally got Lorenzo on lead guitar, Cristiano on the drums and Ermy (ex-Blood '77) on the bass.
They played an explosive mixture of '77 style Punk Rock, Glam Rock, Hard Rock and Scandinavian Rock'n'Roll, due to the different musical taste of the members.
In early July they start their live activity, in a short time Killer Penis stood out in some festivals gigs (Le Pinete Rock n Roll fest, Twist Off V, Rolling Hills Festival and Tears Valley Rumble) and in most famous clubs around north-central Italy. In October 2011, they recorded their first album HELL IS MY PLACE (Revenge Events Record/Lamette Records), released then in May 2012.
In July 2012 Cristiano left the band so Killer Penis changed again their line up, Ermy left the bass strings to turn to the skins of the drums and his place was taken by David!
After a few shows, Ermy unfortunately left the band for personal reasons and Puccio took his place!

In September 2013 they recorded their second album "KINGS OF SLAPS" that will be released in February 2014!

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).

Drifting Mines - Comeback Cd
January 2014


Drifting Mines are a young roman rock 'n' roll trio thought and led by singer and guitarist Adalberto "Hell Rey" Correale. The three trace the roots of rock and roll starting from the primitive Delta blues, to plunge into a dark and powerful sound. The Drifting Mines feed on voodoo and the occult, rock 'n' roll, boogie woogie, honky tonk and mariachi music, all seasoned with a rockabilly soul able to wake the dead. On stage, the trio (which sometimes comes to five elements), ignites the audience with a raw and wild sound where african drums, flutes, sitar and kalimba create the soundtrack to the apocalypse. Every Drifting Mines show is like a voodoo ceremony where people dance and listen to the rhythm of the music up to a state of trance. their concerts are pure mesmerism.
In 2012 they release their debut album that’s a live recording in studio made in 6hrs, a record brings you into deep Garage-Blues as well as R'n'R/Rockabilly, keeping in mind Punk Rock attitude. Now the band got their new album will be out in 2014, but in the meantime they decide to give us a taste of their crazy and hot R’n’R through a digital single. All we can do is listening to those songs, waiting for their new release!!

4. The Conjuration

I met Marco a few years ago when I was playing on Broadway in Nashville. We were all amazed at his command of not only the guitar, but of American roots music in general. You could easily see how much he loved the music he was playing.
Man! What a great guitar player!!
We all wish he would come back and visit us really soon. You must have his new album, if only to hear San Antonio Rose. He puts more in this one track than other guitarists put in an entire CD!!

The Sick Rose - Blastin' Out... plus 2CD

Steve & the Jerks and Anteenagers M.C. - Campo-logy Cd
September 2013


Underground cult artist Fred Campo's old Rock'n'Roll circus act finally makes it to compact disc. Made in the Noughties of various punk and garage related noises, their songs will not remind you of Johnny Hallyday which is unusual for a French group. Campo and two other members of the gang made a bigger impact on the Music Business with their post-punk tagged band Frustration.
But we at Fish Lips Records believe that Anteenagers MC, and Steve & The Jerks (the band that kicked off Campo's still unheard legend), deserved to be heard as well. So we did the job for you to enjoy.
Viva la Rock'N'Roll!


It all started in September 1994 and a collective urge to make some noise in a Saints/Headcoats sort of way. This was Steve & The Jerks, and they were three: Manu B., Laurent B. and Christian G.. About a year later, Junior Campo took the bass player's seat (it's just a figure of speech, he doesn't actually sit down while playing, nor did his predecessor). Everyone's life was changed forever. Campo was, and still is, considered a God of Rock in some countries (it's still not clear which ones though). 2000 saw the arrival of Nicus a.k.a Nikus on second guitar, and after one final show as Steve & The Jerks, they changed everything but themselves, becoming Anteenagers M.C.

Campo was now a legend on 77% of the known planets of the Universe (all unfit for life). AMC made a demi-album, an US tour (237 people came see them in five cities, Campo becoming a star in twelve ghost towns in the meantime). July 2010 (a Saturday night if I remember well), they did one last show then took a long break. As soon as Campo is done with his current project (bringing peace to the World according to an unconfirmed rumor), AMC may add a thing or two to this story. To be continued or not.
