We are Italia 90, a four-piece from the UK. Our music threads together several disparate influences, but we are united by friendship and a drive to make exciting, interesting and politically and socially engaged music.
So far have self-released two EPs on cassette, as well as two singles with the brilliant experimental label Box Records. There's a new single out now ("An Episode") and a third EP coming soon, a joint venture release between fierce panda and Permanent Creeps.
"...Very much rate this, and certainly don’t think that Wire, Alternative TV, Sauna Youth and Institute’s Catharsis LP are excessively flattering reference points..." The Quietus
"...catnip for fans of Protomartyr or The Fall..." The Ransom Note
"...sounds as though it was recorded in a working sawmill..." Hard of Hearing Music
"...The sound this four piece create, recalls those early Wire recordings, Joy Division cassettes and Gang of Four bootlegs at least one mate would own having sneaked a cassette recorder into the venue to record and listen to a few weeks later…." Louder Than War
