Well I'm back from hiatus today with an interesting old Italian punk record. You can hear JUGGERNAUT playing aggressive and full-throttle hc punk on the Senza Tregua compilation - originally on BCT Tapes, later reissued on vinyl by a few labels (essential Italian punk!). But this LP shows other influences sneaking into JUGGERNAUT's frenetic and flanged out brand of punk. There are more straightforward moments on here bringing to mind melodic bands like ARTICLES OF FAITH or HUSKER DU, but tempered with a fair amount of psych and other rock influences. A bit too "jammy" on the 3+ minute tracks for my everyday musical digesting, but overal a cool record and an exhilarating must-hear for Italian punk diehards.
