    We, BCT, me and Dave, were just a coupla punx doin' a living room tape label cuz we couldn't afford to press vinyl. When we first heard RAW POWER who was one of the bands sent to us at the behest of Syd, the vocalist of CCM to Roberto Schavio who then sent us like a 60 and 2 90's of Italian HC bands in 1983. We made those tapes into #2 and #4. RAW POWER stood out and somehow we heard from someone in Italy that they wanted to tour the U.S. Up to that point the only non U.S. HC bands to tour the U.S. had been from England, GBH, DISCHARGE, EXPLOITED probably also COCKNEY REJECTS and a coupla others. Me and Dave just went to local and some L.A. shows. We didn't know nuttin' about doin' a tour but we said yes. I was 30, pretty old compared to most punx of the day. The band came over with Mauro vocals 23; Guiseppe his brother (RIP) rhythm guitar 27; Dode bass 26; Elder drums just 17 and their original guitarist who also did the screaming vocals for about 4 of their songs including Raw Power and F. Authority couldn't make it so Davide took his place 20. We had the greatest time, 20 gigs in 40 days. No internet to help us do it. I just contacted every punk I could think of around the country in the cities New York to L.A. and back. We had the big show, 5,000 punx, 5 slam pits, at the Olympic Auditorium put on by Goldenvoice, the International show with SOLUCION MORTAL and SNFU and BGK who was the only other band along with RIISTETYT to not come from England to tour the U.S. that summer. The first 3 songs are from the Cleveland show, the last one of the tour on 9/7/84 at the Pop Shop. 4 thru 16 are from Cincinnati (actually Lexington, Kty across the river) at the Jockey Club on 9/4, soundboard. 17-23 are from Pittsburgh 9/6 at the Electric Banana. Side B of the tape is Chicago 9/24 songs 24 to 32 at Tuts. Songs 33 to 37 are Philadelphia 8/3 at some college like 2nd show of the tour. It was video taped by Mr. Video. He showed it to us afterward. All chaotic. If you know him have him send us a copy will ya? African American. Finally songs 38 thru 43 are from the first show of the tour Boston I think the Paradise theater with PSYCHO on 7/29. We had a D.C. show that we were working on but it never happened. Bummer. That day was nothing so we stayed at some punx's parent's home deep in the woods of Connecticut. The awesome cd HC revival label Grand Theft Audio released this with an added 5 minute interview I did with the band literally on the road near the end of the tour. gf RAW POWER were and are the greatest guys, classic Italian punx, a lotta laughs and a lotta talkin' and jokin'. While at the Indianapolis show we were there another day and that day with Paul Mahern of the Zero Boys RA POWER recorded Screams from the Gutter lp in one afternoon. Paul's friend video taped about 15 minutes of it. If you know him have him send us a copy will ya? USELESS PIECES OF SHIT in Tucson also made a video of the Tucson show. The Indy show was near the end of the tour so the band had honed it chops so they banged out the lp. One of my favorite memories of my life, that tour, those guys, those shows, seein' all those different scenes and my own country.
