BASTA- Non posso sopportare questa sporca Situazione 7″EP (Basta Records, Italy, 1982)

basta_frontbasta_backbasta_vinylabasta_vinylbI heard your desperate call and now here’s some more Oi-Punk from Italy. BASTA, that’s what I heard, showed a bit more affection for the rightwing scene. Well, well, well. Don’t know much more about BASTA and quite frankly: I never understood the whole concept of Oi and how this was supposed to be going together with Punk and all that. Some has more about the specific italian scene of the early 80s?

Musically, it’s a bit tougher than ROUGH though less Hardcore-ish. A stronger UK-influence is there, but still, I think this is a neat little stomper. Not quite as catchy as the last one, but with some nice moments (and one helluva drummer again) and a powerful singer. Lyrically, the topic of drug use oopsy abuse seems to be the main issue, as well as the usual “I’ll never change”-stuff.

If this going to be such a huge success like the last Oi post, I’m gonna pull out some more of these little gemms from my vaults of horror, haha.

  1. That didn’t take long ;) These guys are more oi than the last one at least to my ears. The third song really shreds and is the most hardcore of the lot. I’m always partial to bands that don’t hide the bass behind everyone else. Nice one.

  6. Thanks, beatme – somebody had pointed me to this just half an hour before you did, and as you can read, I even left a short comment there. Well, what can I say. Some people seem to have a hard time dealing with emotional rejection.

    Basta with Oi please :-) The lyrics are so dumb. Should I try and translate them?

    Regarding the other: I can’t understand why this guy from the other blog reacts like this. Maybe your right and it’s an emotional thing. But it also makes him look very stupid.

  11. What's the Truth?

    I’ll post here if it means we move away from Oi, haha.

    Seriously, though, the Oi records you post are really not so bad. I usually don’t like the stuff at all, but the ones you post always have some kind of unique draw, so thanks for making me slightly more open-minded. Still, I don’t know if I can bring myself to call it “Good” Bad music…Maybe “decente cattivo.”

    Basta 7″ came out in 1984, not ’82. And if they were fascists, C.A.S. Records wouldn’t have co-produced that record.

    Bottomline is Erich, that the guy probably admires your blog very much.

    Finally, you adjusted something on the technical side of things? The lay-out looks ok now, and the blog loads faster. Nice.

  26. I’m surprised (well, not really) that almost no one commented on the song “Caos,” which is the #1 best example of the micro-sub-genre of European skinhead bands that have one Discharge/Varukers-influenced hardcore song. It’s mislabeled in the mp3s here, by the way.

    Dr. Schrader wants to turn punk rock into a college class. It’s just music. Don’t over think it. Just blast it.

    Stuart is one of those people I like to call a “catch up punk” or a “buy in punk.” He did not experience the punk of the late 70s/early 80s first hand, which is OK. But he attempts to establish credibility for himself by purchasing rare records decades after the fact and declaring himself an expert. He’s an arrogant know it all. Hey, if I lived with my rich mother until I was 30 years old, I could fly to Japan for record hunts, too.

  31. Dear T. or R.A.III (same person, according to the IP): I don’t know much about Stuart Schrader but I sure wish there were more people like him around. Pleasure comes from knowledge, depth and labor too, I think, and not only from “first hand experience”. In fact, all “first hand experience” turns out as such after a while only. Some people who were there when it happened, like in 76 or 77, are among the dumbest fucks I met in my life.

  34. What's the Truth?

    Sadly, ever time I heard “punk” mentioned or discussed in the university, it was deeply dissatisfying and not at all fulfilling.

    Erich, weren’t you working on an article about music? I seem to remember you mentioning it last year…

  35. Thanks for this. Basta is one of my favorite Italian Oi! Bands, and the only copy I’ve had for years was from the Bootprints across Italy CD, which was kinda scratchy in the recording.
    I’d say post more Oi, but that would sound rude and demanding. But If you do post anymore, I would be sure to thank you for anything you put up.

    Hi, I know this guys (I’m from florence) and they NEVER liked rightwing shit politics… back in the days (1983) fascist attacks ruined the 3rd Oi! italian meeting in Certaldo, their hometown here in tuscany (the same meeting where ROUGH refused to play), and they lost their only place to play (as written on the back of the ep)

  37. Thanks for the info, Francesco. Would you care to translate the statement for us? That’d be great!

    ok!
    This record is not dedicated to: all the political organisations who want to exploit us, who don’t mind his own business, who sing about stopping our undertakings hoping in vain to change us (we’ll never change!), those who have ruined the third oi! meeting causing the loss of the only place we had here

    well, that’s pretty naive eheheh
    I’ve read also about the fascists attacks in the Certaldo’s meeting in the book by Riccardo Pedrini (nabat bass player) “Ordigni”, and in some Steno (nabat singer) and Rough interviews… shit happens, and very often in the Oi! scene!
    Bye
