Snakebite City Compilation - Vol. 4 - 5 - 6 - 7

Che che nostalgia! Il buon Claudio tira fuori dal cassetto dei ricordi queste mitiche compilation della Blue Fire Music. Se non erro sono arrivati fino alla 12. la loro missione era quella di far emergere quella miriade di gruppi molto piccoli, ma molto bravi, che con canzoni e umili 7" cercavano di emergere nella bolgia del Brit Pop. Alcuni di questi gruppi hanno avuto la loro gloria e la loro meritata notorietà, altri invece sono scomparsi senza lasciare traccia.
Eppure come non innamorarsi di questa dedizione, come non mangiarsi le mani e dire: "Ma come?? Perchè questi non ce l'hanno fatta? Erano bravissimi!!"...un tuffo nel passato, un tuffo in quello che è la vera risocperta di gruppi che non meritano di essere dimenticati....a voi alcune compilation Snakebite City!!

  1. These Bluefire comps hold some great rare britpop. Thanks!!! I believe 1-3 are only available as vinyl. After 7 they didn't offer that much in the way of britpop-esque bands.

  2. That was me all those years ago - I created and ran Bluefire running around gigs finding these bands- I released 12 snakebite City vols plus various singles and albums. Vols 1 & 2 were only on vinyl and 3 was on CD but sold out very quickly and was never repressed.

    Thanks for keeping the memory going!!

  3. Many Thanx Paul!
    You are the best!! ;-)
