Senzabenza- Especially For You 7”. A movement cannot exist without it's door openers. In 1989 when Italy's pop punk realm didn't exist, there was a newly formed band called Senzabenza that would soon change things. With no constraints from any kind of labeling in a pre-Internet age, they began to play their own conceptualized brand of poppy punk rock. This style was absent in Italy in the late 80’s when punk bands played more aggressively with political overtones, but Senzabenza geared their music towards a more melodic sound and had more brighter lyrical themes. They've accomplished a great deal of successes in the 26 years of their existence and are very responsible for helping other bands like the Manges get exposure over the years. Plain and simple, this band has to be admired for being the spark to a now rich history of pop punk in Italy to this very day. 2003 was the last year to see a release from Senzabenza, but I’m happy to report that they have a great new 7" called "Especially For You"! It’s a super catchy two songer that maintains their purity with melodically heavy guitars, a fast uptempo pace and with Nando's signature melodic voice that holds it all together. Great to see these guys playing again! THESE ARE LIMITED TO 200 COPIES! Import from Italy.
