CHEETAH CHROME MOTHERFUCKERS / I REFUSE IT!- Permanent Scar Split LP (Children of the Revolution Records, UK, 1985)

cover scans currently down Here’s some more CCM for you – it’s the famous split tape, that was released on vinyl in the UK in 1985. 4 tracks had been left off due to technical reasons.
Not more needs to be said about CCM. I REFUSE IT!, who also had a great 7″ and an LP (I think), play totally off the wall avantgarde synthie-HC or however you want to call it. Not for the faint of heart, but at least check out “Chocu Umeret”, the band’s hit!

One thing about the CCM side: The track order seems to be correct until and including “400 Fascists” – but the rest of the side doesn’t somehow match with the tracklist printed on the innersleeve. I can make out some of the songs, but the whole thing’s kinda messy. That’s something you probably wouldn’t ever notice unless you rip it, I guess. I just left the rest as one big chunk and reproduced the obviously wrong tracklist as is. If anybody cares to clear things up, drop us a line.

Go to HY’s Antithesis blog and get some more CCM!

    I don’t think so, germsburn. Last thing I heard was that he lives in Amsterdam and works as a recording engineer.

    Josephine is fixed.

    Trying to clear things up – let’s see, the tracklist in the tape version was wrong, too, as far as I know. Here’s the real (so I hope) CCM tracklist:

    Voice of the blood
    Barbed wire world
    (Right to be) Italian
    Nation on fire
    Envy (I’m a mess)
    Foe or friend
    Life of punishment *
    (We’re the) Juvenile delinquency
    Work (means death)
    400 fascists
    Alkool
    Everyday’s a Reagan day
    Best party ever – No bore
    Bendix power – Secret hate
    Addiction
    Camp Darby blues – Any sacrifice
    Tellyson *
    Need a crime *
    Ultracore *

    The songs with * don’t seem to appear on the UK LP version.
    The IRI songs deleted on said LP were: Hit’n’run attack, Story of my house, Mira il tuo popolo.
    IRI made no LP. After the 1984 EP (Cronache del videotopo) they did a 12″ EP called ‘M’ (1986, Belfagor) and then a split LP with Ultima Thule (UK, Inward Collapse, 1986). The IRI tracks from the split LP were rereleased as a miniLP called ‘Mind the gap’ (1989), maybe that’s what you had in mind.
    There’s an IRI! compilation called ‘Cronache del videotopo’ (Wide Records, 2005) which has all this stuff, including compilation tracks and the Permanent Scar tape tracks. Remixed though (that’s why I’m downloading this now – the original sound is rawer)
    Thanks for posting it.

    The tracklist of the IRI side is obviously wrong too (now that I’ve heard the tracks). What you listed as ‘Mannikin’ (I guess that’s what the label says) is not that, but ‘Story of my house’. Mannikin appears on the tape version (and the mentioned CD reissue).

    Oh-oh. I was wrong. The IRI tracklist has more mistakes. Here’s the correct tracklist of the downloadable tracks:

    1 Nuove dal fronte
    2 Chocu umeret
    3 Fall down
    4 Josephine
    5 Sacrifici umani
    6 The story of my house (not Mannikin)
    7 Mannikin (not Spread…)
    8 Spread of disease (Contagio) (not Chocu umeret II!!)

    (The real Chocu umeret II is a curious piano version of Chocu umeret, that lasts 1:10 approx.)
    “You won’t fool / the Children of the Revolution” (T. Rex), but they made tracklists as wrong as the Italians themselves… Ha ha

    This was released in 1983 not 1985. I remember this being reviewed in MRR in 83 or 84.

    No, Eddie. The tape was self-released in 1983, the LP version was released by C.O.R. in 1985 and reviewed by M.R’nR the same year.
