‘D.D.I.’ (‘Degenerazione D’Incubo’) from Pavia were a wonderful anarcho collective/ political HC band who highlighted their lyrics and ideas with ironic/ tongue-in-cheek but smart little theatre/cabaret-pieces; almost comedia dell’arte… They promoted D.I.Y. and cooperation: their 10” Pazzi Da Asporto was co-released (’96) by a bunch of European D.I.Y. labels: Pawel’s Scream recs (Poland), Bob & Seth ‘Active Minds’ Loony Tunes recs (UK), Sned’s Flat Earth recs (UK), Jon Elliott’s Active distribution (UK), Nikt Nic Nie Wie (Pol), Maloka (Fra), etc. chipped in to support it’s release. Even my Tilt! distribution provided some funding… The original cover was a screen-printed envelope and contained 32 page booklet. They also did a self-produced 7”: Fanculo I Suoni Puliti (’94) (from the review in Tilt! #8: “Extremely energizing, straightforward melodic HC. Political/DIY.”). The band at this gig consisted of Dario Quatrini (guitar), ‘Gallo’ Alessandro Garlaschelli (guitar), Gianpiero ‘Mila’ Milani (vocals), Gio(vanni) Lazzaroni (drums) and Edo(ardo) Puglisi (bass) & Daniele ‘Lele’ Malabarba (bass) – yep, 2 bassists but ‘Lele’ didn’t play here… Mila, Irith Davidson, Piero Majocchi & Luca Musso ran AZ Autoproduzioni (distro and label). The band came back to the Vort’n Vis on 96-09-20 and I did an interview in Tilt! #9 with them…

The LP Fight Back with 80s tracks by ‘Oi Polloi’ was out on Campary recs (Armin Heitman & Katja from Düsseldorf). At that time the band consisted (besides vocalist Deek) of guitarist Matt Finch (a.k.a. Keith Chugwin), bassist Calum Mackenzie (nowadays in ‘Phobia’ & ‘Skelptarsis’) and drummer Murray Briggs (who replaced Chris ‘Wheelie’ Willsher).

‘Systral’ (from Bremen) played brutal crust-grind/death-metal with a screamo edge (2 vocalists). The members were Björn Schmidt (vocals; also ‘Carol’/’Mörser’), Denny Schmidt (vocals; also ‘Mörser’), Dirk Kusche (bass; also ‘Rusty James’; started the Chrome Saint Magnus label with ‘Acme’s drummer Gregor Iwanoff in ‘98), Sönke ‘Sonne’ Gabriel (drums; bassist of ‘Acme’) and Andy Lohmüller (guitar). That year they had 2 releases: Fever…The Maximum Carnage 10” (recorded July 95’) & Maximum Entertainment 7” – on the Per Koro label. They came a secon time the next year (96-09-22).

Coche Bomba’ (from Lyon) played fast & brutal crusty hardcore-punk. They had 2 vocalists – Ivan Brun & Jean-Pierre ‘J.P.’ Davila – their (political) lyrics were in French, English & Spanish. The other members were André & ‘Gork’ (guitar), Cécile (bass; also ‘Dirt’; she replaced Christoff) and Steph Coi (drums; later ‘Befa’ Fabrice Drevet of ‘Vömit För Breakfast’ joined them, he also did Tranzophobia zine with Sylvain Fayard). They had recorded a demo (95-06-03) and there was a split-7” out with Enola Gay (Fra) on Bad Card recs 1995; Viva La Derelicción 7” (recorded May ’96 with André, Cécile, Ivan, J.P. & Steph) would follow… They kept going well into the noughties and did several tours (also Latin-America, etc.). Ivan Brun works as a cartoonist, comic book writer, painter (sickfuckermagazine.blogspot & http://ivanbrun.tanibis.net)…

‘Carcer Molochi’ came from the ‘suburbs’ of Ieper and most of them volunteered at the V.V. in way way or another; so they supported quite a few bands at he Vort’n Vis. They were: Erwin Degryse (guitar), Johan Sys (vocals), Michael Maes (guitar; later ‘Link’), Inge Cappoen (vocals; later ‘Link’), David Stubbe (drums; ex ‘Neuthrone’ and later in many other bands), Danny Suffys (bass). David was later replaced by Bram ‘Lawaai’ Calbrecht and Danny by Yannick… Their demo had been recorded mid 1995. Some described their music as metal-crust, ‘Misery’ style (because of the female/male vocals).

‘Insane Youth’, a crustcore band from the Sint-Niklaas area, were: Jan ‘Fons’ Wuytack (drums), Thomas ‘Tomaz’ Van Rumst (bass), Steve ‘Stiv’ Descamps (vocals) and Tim De Baere (guitar); but here Stef De Leersnijder (also ‘Corpus Christi’ and later in ‘Visions Of War’) played along. Can’t remember at what time Vanessa Hoskens (who was their 2nd vocalist for a while) was in the band.

‘Insane Youth’ – Stef [L] & Steve [R] (pic by Michael Maes)

‘Rawness’ played catchy melodic HC-punk. Christophe Mora said “NYHC-influenced”… They were from the Dijon/Lyon area. Members of the band: Jean-Marc Moratille (drums & vocals; ex ‘Blighted Area’ – he also did/does the JoliCoeur & Pay No More Than blogs), Michael (bass), Lamy Fumex (guitar & vocals) and Lionel Coing (vocals). They had a demo-tape and did a split with ‘Personal Choice’ on Yann Boislève’s label in 1995.

The Scottish (Glaswegian) ‘Glue’ were compared to ‘Jawbox’, ‘No Means No’ or ‘Fugazi’… Others thought of ‘Black Flag’… It was melodic HC (post-punk?). Their bassist Angus McPhee had contacted me for the distribution of their records. Pete Darlington from ‘Kitchener’ was replacing Stef Sinclair (drums). Their former guitarist Allan McNaughton (nowadays living in California now, wrote a monthly column and record-reviews for MaximumRock’n’Roll; see: allanmcnaughton.blogspot) informs us that himself and Sandy Carson (vocals/guitar) were no longer in the band at the time of this gig. Here the singer/guitarist was ‘Hubby’/RM Hubbert. Our mate Joeri Hoste had already arranged a gig for them in Brugge (Oct 2nd 1993: ‘Four Walls Falling’, ‘Sofa Head’, Blindfold, ‘Feeding The Fire’, ‘Nations On Fire’ and ‘Glue’). Later Angus came over again, driving for ‘Quarantine’/’Scatha’… (Or was that Angus Quinn?) At that time the band had released (on Angus’ label Feeble recs) an LP ‘Gravel (recorded July ’92; with Ritchie, Allan, Sandy, Stef & Angus) and the 7” From Here To Obscurity (recorded April ’94; with Rispey, Stef, Hubby & Angus)…

Brob

Unfortunately I was out of the band at that time because I was working nightshifts in a mall. Tim did the 2nd guitar. I don’t remember the name of some people but I remember that often some people (from El Paso squat in Torino, an another safe-house called Barocchio) came with us to do the distro and enjoy the gig. I played in Belgium during the 2nd tour…

Some years ago we did a little tour around Italy in squatted houses to promote a book entitled Make Music Not Money, so we played again as in the 90s! Read all about it on paviahc.wordpress.com

Daniele ‘Lele’ Malabarba

AZ was our distro & label from 1990 to 1996, we produced the ‘D.D.I.’ 7” and the 10” with the others labels (and many others records and tapes), then in 1996 we split up as a collective. I went into the techno-rave scene, Luca was bored with people interested only in music and remained in the anarchist political movement (he’s still active), and Mila did Agipunk and started his punk-star career, he later repressed the 10” ‘D.D.I.’ as Agipunk… [Brob: Irith lives near Genova, works in a highschool and has a passion for her vergetable-garden.]

As ‘Lele’ mentioned, the ‘old’ punx from Pavia struck again in 2007: we did a book about the D.I.Y. HC/punk-scene in Pavia and Italy, DDI reformed without Mila and we organised a tour (8 gigs) to sell the book directly. The following years we organised punk gigs in Pavia and in 2015 we started a new band ‘Malabrocca’ [see comment].

Piero Majocchi

It was a great time but too long ago to remember. The hospitality was great, the italian pasta market we made in the courtyard. As far as I remember we made a 30 min heavy metal set (‘Iron Maiden’, ‘Black Sabbath’,…) during a gig there. I’ve been playing with Lele and Giò from the old line-up, and Piero is doing vocals (he was from AZ distributione).

Edoardo Puglisi

Sandy and I were out of the band before the Vort’n Vis gig – by that time the band was a 3-piece with a singer/guitarist called ‘Hubby’/RM Hubbert. He is actually a famous musician in Scotland now, has won some prizes.

Allan McNaughton, ex-guitarist of ‘Glue’

My main recollections: 1. First date of a very long European tour. 2. I had a panic-attack whilst sleeping in the back of the van and fell head first out of the back-door into the Vort’n Vis courtyard. 3. The pastries were excellent. 4. Don’t remember much about our show, which probably means it was average. Pete Darlington from ‘Kitchener’ was playing drums instead of Stef on that tour. Think we had a show the next day so didn’t hang around… One thing I noticed was that Richey Dempsey recorded the album and EP but was never in the band…

RM Hubbert

It was a fun weekend!

Sas, KBaal wholsesale distro (Dordrecht); personal communication Sep ‘95

‘Rawness’ played right before ‘D.D.I.’… We met a lot of French people there, I recall seeing friends from Saint-Etienne and Montbelliard.

Jean-Marc, ‘Rawness’ drummer

I remember seeing ‘Glue’, ‘Rawness’, ‘D.D.I.’,… an drinking Jupiler… There was some sort of open-air festival in the streets of Ieper that evening. [The annual ‘Leet’ festival, the V.V.’s ‘Leed’ fest was meant as an alternative…]

Ivan Brun, ‘Coche Bomba’

I only played in ‘Coche Bomba’ from 99 to 2010 or something…and I played guitar there, not drums like in most of my bands. I think Ivan was just singing at the beginning of the band, he might have started to play bass (plus vocals) when Cécile left the band to play in ‘Dirt’. When a bunch of guitar-players left the bands, they started to do ‘Kuruma Bakudan’ which means ‘Coche Bomba’ in Japanese. That line-up consisted of Stef on drums, JP on vocals, Ivan on bass and Sandy on bass too. I guess they played like that from 96 to 99. After that, they asked Guigui (‘Vomit For Breakfast’, ‘Chaos ZZZ’ guitarist – later he played in ‘Silent Bones’ and ‘Maloko’ in Canada) and myself (‘Vomit For Breakfast’, ‘Chaos ZZZ’, ‘Unlogistic’, ‘State Poison’, ‘Deletär’) to play the guitars and call it ‘Coche Bomba’ again, so we jumped on the occasion. I left the band at the same time as Sandy and Stef in about 2010, but the band kept on going with one South-East Asia tour, a Mexico/U.S.’ tour and another tour in South-America. At some point Ivan came back to complete the dual vocals from the original days, but I’m not sure about the situation right now… [Brob: People also might wanna read this interview from 1997: Coche Bomba (Antipoder #9)]

‘Befa’ Fabrice Drevet

I played guitar with ‘Oi Polloi’ 1994-1997. I think I played 3 gigs at the Vort’n Vis. First was on the tour with ‘Subcaos’ [94-04-02]/ ‘X-Acto’ [94-09-17]. Played a couple of all-day events there… Pretty crust they were; ‘Extinction Of Mankind’ [95-09] & ‘Bad Influence’ [94-09] spring to mind.

Matt Finch

I remember this as one of our first gigs with Stef as an additional member. The stage was built up in the back of the Vort’n Vis garage for this one. I vaguely remember ‘Systral’ and ‘Oi Polloi’ as I was playing a lot of their records around that time. Sharing a stage with them was really exciting for me as a teenager. I’m really grateful to have experienced international communities coming together in magical places such as the Vort’n Vis. Thanks to everyone who made it happen.

Intro: 96-09-20&21&22 8th Leed festival

Only Stupid Bastards Help Epitaph (-)

‘Eversor’, a band from Pesaro, played heartfelt, melodic HC (their music was described as a mix of bands such as ‘Sensefield’, ‘Lifetime’, ‘Farside’and ‘Dag Nasty’). The backbone of the band was Marco Morosini (bass) & his brother Lele Morosini (guitar & vocals). I think Federico Sarti who played the drums during their first visit (93-09-19) was replaced by Valentino Benvenuti by then: someone named ‘Vale’ signed the guestbook. Valentino was on the recordings of the 7”s World Of Illusions & Time Goes By (both Jan. ‘95) and also on the (June 1996) recordings of the September LP. Marco also did a distro, called Cataclysm. Later the brothers continued to play together in ‘The Miles Apart’.

96 Eversor tour

‘D.D.I.’s second appearance at the Vort’n Vis (after 95-09-16). The band consisted of the 2 bassists – Edo(ardo) Puglisi & Daniele ‘Lele’ Malabarba, Alessandro ‘Gallo’ (guitar; nowadays ‘Gallo’ works for Twilight Tattoo), Dario Quatrini (guitar), Gianpiero ‘Mila’ Milani (vocals) and Gio(vanni) Lazzaroni (drums). Edo left later because of civil service and Lenin of ‘Los Crudos’ joined (read below). The recordings of their 10” Pazzi Da Asporto (finished spring ’96) feautured Edo, Lele, Gio, Mila, Dario & Gallo. It was co-released by a bunch of European D.I.Y. labels & distros (even Tilt! contributed some funding). The original cover was a screen-printed envelope that contained a huge booklet. Great political fast HC with a playful twist! Extremely inspiring and super-energetic!

‘Boycot’ (from Alkmaar) started in ’95 with Jeroen Maas (bass) Eric-Jan (guitar) & Taco Rietveld (drums). Billy Kuiper (later also drums for ‘Distress’ and vocals for ‘Betercore’) was asked to do vocals and Pim Bakker (vocals; ex ‘C.K.N.’) joined a bit later. Most of them were also active (one way or another) in the ‘punk’ venue Parkhof. By the end of 1995 they had released their 1st 7” called Only Stupid Bastards Help Epitaph (on Axiome prods – review in Tilt! #9: “Superfast HCpunk with a slight metal edge and biting vocals.”). During the spring of ’96 Lennaert Roomer (who played drums in Rich Militia’s ‘Wartorn’ earlier and later bass in ‘Distress’) replaced Eric-Jan on guitar. A bunch of split-7”s would follow (e.g. with our mates of ‘Insane Youth’ in 1997). Pim left in ’98 for personal reasons.

Brob

I was in ‘D.D.I.’ from the start (1992) until 1998. I didn’t play on the last LP (though most of the songs on that album were mine). I played the V.V. in ’95. We always played with 2 basses from 1993 until the end (’99). We had 4 bassists over the years. Edo left the band at the end of ‘96 or in the early ‘97…after our tour in Germany tour. Lenin joined us after touring with ‘Los Crudos’. We were in Belgium two times in 1996 (04-30 [Brob: I invited them for a concert at the Hogepont squat in Gent.] to 05-01), and Sep. 18/19/20). The tour in Germany was in 1997. When Dario left ‘D.D.I.’ he continued to be the band’s grapic designer. All our flyers were done by Dario (and also the book Make Music Not Money – A few years ago we did a little tour around Italy in squatted houses to promote that, so we played again as in the 90s!). ‘Gallo’s real name is Alessandro; he was called ‘Gallo’ (rooster) because he was a psychobilly in the late 80s, his hair was styled like Elvis Presley!!!

I started playing with ‘D.D.I.’ in 1993, when I was 16 and in highschool. At the time I was in the ‘Astro Zombie’s anarcho-collective/distro, which produced the band first 7” Fanculo I Suoni Puliti (Clear Sounds Fuck Off). I joined as a second bassist; the band was already playing in squats around Italy, so it was really like joining in the middle of the action. Soon we recorded the album Pazzi Da Asporto and also started our first gigs outside Italy. It may be that the first time at the V.V. [the year before this; 95-09-16] was also our first gig abroad, but maybe not. We then did also a tour in Germany and one in Spain, which was also my last with the band. At the time I was at university and it had become difficult to have enough time for both things. I have great memories of the concert and festivals at the Vort’n Vis but I can’t exactly distinguish memories from the two times we played there. What I remember most was the courtyard in the middle, with the vans and the sofas and the distro. I also remember when we cooked and sold pasta to everybody (Damn Italian Pastards [see photos below]) and I’m pretty sure that one concert we did more than half of the set playing hardrock classics (‘Black Sabbath’, ‘Iron Maiden’, …). For me these gigs were a great example of the sense of solidarity, passion and community that we shared in many squats around Europe, and they’re among my best memories of life with ‘D.D.I.’. This experience was a great moment of formation for me and even now that I do different things, these ideals are still with me; and I try as much as possible to put them into action also in very different situations.

96-09-20 + Damnpastardsgraffiti somewhere at the V.V.

I joined ‘D.D.I.’ in the last year of the band (97-98) and we always played with 2 bassists. If I’m not mistaken we played at the V.V. in the winter of ‘97… [Brob: I have no record of that…]. I played there with ‘Los Crudos’ in 96.

Lenin Montes De Oca

I visited various gigs at the V.V., also the Leed festival in Sep. ‘94 & Sep. ’95 but not at this one in ’96… Patty Cracolici was the female singer in ‘D.D.I.’ on the last album (split with ‘Stalker’, 1998), together with Dimitri (guitar), Carlo (guitar) & Gigi (bass). That was the last line-up of the band (with some original members – but I don’t remember exactly who, it changed every 2 months…)

Piero Majocchi

When we got to the V.V. ‘Terror Tom’ (from Gent; with a Riot in a Nike-logo tattoo on his head), was standing outside because they wouldn’t let him in. He asked us if we couldn’t put him on the guest-list… Which we did and what the people of the V.V. didn’t like. Within 10 minutes there was a big fist-fight with ‘Terror Tom’ as the centre-piece… Not very clever? At one timepoint the V.V. stage collapsed underneath me…but I don’t remember if it was that night.

Bill ‘Boycot’

[Early on it looked like ‘Frammenti’ (from Torino) would tour with ‘D.D.I.’] I was the guitar-player in ‘Frammenti’. We never played in Belgium, we’ve been in Switzerland twice, in Germany, in France and Spain. The rest was Italy only… I remember I heard ‘Mila’ and Irith from ‘D.D.I.’ talking about you, Brob. The ‘D.D.I.’ – ‘Frammenti’ tour you mentioned, was – I think – in Switzerland and Germany during April 1997. It was organised by the band ‘Peace Of Mind’ from Göttingen. I do remember ‘D.D.I.’ playing in Belgium but never with us.

Pietro Cardona

My memories about the show we played at this fest are pretty confused due to the fact that Bruno (Genet recs) booked us 2 shows the same day (we were supposed to play another city with ‘Blindfold’ the day before but show was cancelled just 10 days before we left for the tour), the first one in Ieper and the second one in Gent @ the Frontline so we couldn’t enjoy the atmosphere at the Vort’n Vis fest, we played late afternoon opening the shows and there were only a few people – including the guys of ‘D.D.I.’, that we never met before that occasion. As usual everyone was very gentle with us, we had meal and drinks, but right after we finished our set, we just had the time to sell a couple of 7”s, have a beer and drive to Gent (where we had a fantastic gig maybe one of the best of that tour). I play in ‘Mannaia’ nowadays…
