The Klaxons are an Italian punk band with post-punk influences, active since 1979. Historical formation and milestone of the Roman music scene, they are still today one of the reference bands of Italian punk, formed 1979 in Rome by the meeting of Andrea Morelli (bass/vocals), Lorenzo Tovoli (guitar/vocals) and Fabrizio Ferraro (drums). The first live performance takes place at the Roman Club Uonna. They also play in all the events organized at the time by Radio Red Wave and Radio Proletaria. In 1983 they released their first EP with five pieces, one of which, “Religion”, came in first place in the Punk Charts Italia ranking in the Rockerilla newspaper. This little compilation was released via Sydney Town and tracks 1-5 were originally released on the “The Kids Today” EP, track 6 is from the “Quelli Che Urlano Ancora..” comp., tracks 7-9 are previously unreleased. Solid stuff!
