Band name:
POLIS-ÄCKEL

Date & location formed:
We started rehearsing infrequently in late 2014. We live in the Marche region, in Italy.

Reason for forming:
Our aim was to create our own d-beat band, just a few distorted chords without much musical finesse. Loud and noisy to the max, with angry as fuck lyrics and vocals. We were moved by the noisier releases of bands such as Disclose, Electric Funeral, Maquina Muerta, Frigora and so on… We chose a swedish band name for a d-beat
‘tribute,’ it means “disgust for police.”

What are your lyrics about?
Our lyrics address violent reactions to police repression and the fascist state of the system. Utilizing anarchist ideology as a foundation on which to build upon ruins of these rotting world.

How would you describe your sound?
We would like to make our sound the more noisy and as aggressive as possible. No musical skill, just anger and distortion.

What’s in the future for this band?
We have planned a 7″ release with Imminent Destrucion records from UK for next summer. Then, play around a bit and let’s see what will happen next.

Space. Time. Life. Change. Instinct.
Basic survival. Dark age trials and tribulations.

barbed-wire-500x12

 

Band name:
MIRRORED LIPS

Date & location formed:

What are your lyrics about?
We sing of death to pigs, the premature aging of baristas, Television the band, our ninety-year-old friend, and of the tough life that small insects have to plug through in a big city.

How would you describe your sound?
One girl took a car and crashed the drums, the other plugged in her guitar and fell off a cliff into the sea, the third one came afterwards and deeply sighed.

What’s in the future for this band?
Plug through in this huge thing of a World.
