Strana Officina, from Livorno (Italy), has been active since the second half of the seventies, and first album, the self-titled debut, out in 1984, is completely sung in italian, immediately showing a strong creative personality.
The bands new EP titled “Guerra Triste”, contains a title-track from their previous album “Law of the Jungle”(2019) and 4 more tracks previously unpublished: 2 promo 2006 versions of “Vai Vai” and “Sole Mare Cuore” and 2 live-bootleg tracks recorded in 1984 (!) with the classic band line-up, “Officina” anticipated by a long guitar solo (goose-bumps!) from never forgotten Fabio Cappanera and “Non Cè Piu’ Mondo”. The LP edition contains 1 extra-track “Il Buio Dentro” released only as CD bonus track on “Law of the Jungle”.
