Beata gioventù cazzona che spara punkrock/emo-hc + tirata possibile: The Special Guests. Che c'è di male nel fare musica veloce indolore per far pogare ai concerti e divertirsi il + possibile? Musica da squat già sentita, risentita, a risentirsi, - ma meglio che un gruppo cover di ligabue, e non è detto che non sia il primo passo verso un'anima propria (senti l'estemporanea Shoes Must Go On, - una tranquillità singolare rispetto il resto delle altre tracce). Dall'entroterra vicentino, il nome sulla copertina in caratteri punk ritagliati, tutti pezzi su 3 o 4 accordi, mitragliati, a volte imbarazzantemente impegnati (Ad Angelo si rifà alla tragedia molisana dei bambini morti nel crollo della scuola), antirazzisti, cantati in italiano e un ciancicato inglese. Tutto tra il tossico romantico (Love?), il demente (Pissy the Cat), e la velocità. Poi l'esercizio ben riuscito di stile c'è, - senti la Rain on May, pezzo che fuori d'italí, probabile gli avrebbe fruttato un bel singolo in qualche emo-hitparade.


Beloved carefree youth shooting punkrock/emo-hc, faster and faster as possible: The Special Guests. What's wrong with playing fast music principally adapted for live exhibitions, making people jumping and dancing like cans? Well know squat-music, and we'going to hear more and more other bands like that, - but that's better than any local band making covers of mainstream italian music. And that doesn't mean this might be their first step to an original sparkle (listen to Shoes Must Go On, - a differently quiet mood). From northitaly, not far from Vicenza, they write their name on the cover with punk cut fonts, - all 3/4 chords tracks, loaded & shot, and sometimes embarassely correct (Ad Angelo refers to a tragedy of some months ago in south italy, where a primary school crushed and lots of children died), anti-racism, sung out in itailan and a drunken english. - All between a young toxic romanticism (Love?) and demential (Pissy the Cat) taste, - and velocity. - Btw, these four guys are also able to come out with a perfect emo hit, Rain On May: i'm pretty sure that outside italy they might gain some cash with a single like that!

not yet, probably nobody cares, or nobody cared enough to tell something. Also: nobody reads komakino.
