International (but Berlin-based) hardcore group Idiota Civilizzato begin their journey with La Vita Silenziosa, a powerful debut EP. Seven tracks are packed into these seven inches of vinyl, thrusting a high-velocity, Italian-language blast of ferocious frustration into the listener’s ears. Out on the essential Static Shock label.

Fast punches packed into 7” here from a band as home and away as the TV show of the same name; with members out of Australia, Italy, Mallorca, this hardcore band convene in Germany to make shambolically produced and furiously performed punk bulletins. It’s no surprise that they share members with the darkly serious Diät, though Idiota Civilizzato go in less on the frills and more on the bracing hxc impact.
From very little indeed, Idiota Civilizzato create a sense of potential chaos, the listless lyrical barrages and propulsively non-stop and dominantly mixed drumming making the band sound like a well-disciplined hardcore band ready to collapse into noise instead. They make an old-school, nearly pop-oriented jammer late on in “Vuoto”, a high-fever song that evens out into bratty riffs and sleuthing gang chants. Loud 'n' worth your time, my friends.
