VA – Not Enough – Five Bands From Milan 1995 Italy

This is an awesome little 7″ featuring one song each from 5 hardcore punk rock bands from Milano, Italia.  Need I say more? Everyone loves Italian hardcore, right?  There are some seriously fuckin rad songs on this record, mostly in a melodic thrashcore style.  ‘Milano da Pippare’ by Less Than Zero is my absolute favorite, but almost every song is awesome; the type of songs that stick in your head for days kind of awesome.  These bands and this label seem to be all but forgotten today, but at least they are not lost!

Yet another reason to buy old used records: you never know what you’ll find in them – Max, the guy who apparently released this comp put a hand typed letter inside the sleave, and apparently no one ever took it out.  After searching for the records he mentions, I’ve determined that the letter must have been meant for whoever runs Initial Records out of Kentucky. The funny thing is that he apologizes for the fact that the bands on his record play “old (italian) school” hardcore, as if that were a bad thing!  Anyway, here’s the letter:
