Raw Power "Wop Hour" EP

Raw Power is my favorite Italian hardcore/thrash/ cross-over/ whatever-you-wanna-call-it band. They have been around since 1981, though I think their first recordings were done in 1983.

Though they never broke out of hardcore obscurity, they are still active today (touring California as I write this). I believe singer Mauro Codeluppi is the only remaining original member since his brother Giuseppe (guitar) died in 2002.

For my money, the best stuff from this band is from their 1984-86 lineups. A lot of their stuff is available on CD, but it appears that this 7" EP remains available only on used vinyl and, now, here. Enjoy.

Awesome.Thanks for posting. I have this 7" but I'm glad I don't have to get the equipment to encode it myself.
