One of the longest running Punk Bands in Italy, KLASSE KRIMINALE were founded in 1985 by their leader Marco Balestrino, a singer, fanzine-editor and label-manager whose role in the skinhead scene over the past 25 years has been somewhat crucial. Influenced by early Reggae and Ska-era UK Oi! and Punk, but following in the tracks of Italian skinhead pioneers NABAT and Rough (90% of their songs are typically sung in Italian), Klasse Kriminale’s career has been long and scattered with success. Originally released on the New Rose sublabel „Division Nada“ (run by Berurier Noir’s singer Francois), and long out of print, it was about time that their classic „Faccia A Faccia“ from 1991 was available on vinyl again, with its original and extremely distinctive Alteau artwork.
