about

We are proud to have the "Last White Christmas" reissue in our catalogue.
Everything started back in 1983, when GDHC organized a concert in Pisa and participants were all Tuscan bands, such as BRONTOSAURI, JUGGERNAUT, STATO DI POLIZIA, PUTRID FEVER, DEMENTS, USELESS BOYS, WAR DOGS, AUf'CHLAG, CHEETAH CHROME MOTHERFUCKERS, I REFUSE IT! and TRAUMATIC.
The event turned into a proper gathering and someone preserved the whole live by recording it on tape.
No one better than Chris BCT (the first to release the recordings in tape format) can describe what this concert has meant to the Punk/HC scene:

“…I’ve been goin’ to gigs since 1970 and there is none other like this. IT WAS THE GREATEST RECORDED PUNK ROCK GIG OF ALL TIME! (Not that it’s a contest). HC blew up from about 1980 thru about 1986. It’s still around but the world blast happened then. These are some of the great Italian punk bands of the mid 80’s. This gig is a historical document. It’s high art for future generations. This gig has no bands that suck. And probably all making great music. Some of the best bands I’ve ever heard. To let this gig slip into forgottenness would be an artistic crime cuz there was never anything like it during the heyday of HC from around 1980 through 1986 that I know of. It’s not a perfect recording. I think it’s as close to our punk equivalent of Woodstock as I’ve ever run across…” - Chris BCT

Entirely remastered from the original tapes by Alessandro Sportelli (who had originally recorded it 35 years ago).
The inside 36-page booklet covers a presentation by Chris BCT, interviews with the main players of the time and unpublished photos.
