It' s a pity that you only find few informations about one of the best Italian bands of the 8oies. I mean for example there is the Kill From The Heart entry or even a Myspace "fan"page but with nothing on it; just some covers, pictures from the records and a discography (can anyone tell me why no one is willing to do a discography cd by C.C.M.?). And bloody hell: there is no single Google hit concerning their demo tape "we' re the juvenile delinquency"?
After I saw the first 7", the split tape and the second 7" quite a few times on all this downloading/mp3mos blogs I thought it might be nice to add this one. I will also do the lp soon since I have not seen it on all those blogs - if so: please tell me.
C.C.M. were my first real contact with Italian hardcore from the 80ies and they just blew me away (me being an idiot: I ignored all the other great bands for a long time despite many recommendations by friends). Some guys who took the name of that Dead Boys guy and just added "motherfuckers" can' t go wrong. What ever they had on their mind or in their bodies while choosing it: it' s one of the greatest band names ever!
Musically in my opinion they were to Italy what were +Void+ and Septic Death to the U.S.. And if +Void+ wouldn' t had started playing bad hard rock their unreleased lp should have sounded like C.C.M.
Back to the tape: it is listed as bootleg in some lists but I do not think so, my Italian is very bad but as far as I can get it from the liner notes Robert & Giulio (thanks for putting out that tape back then) used the original master tape for this compilation. If someone can translate or tell me exactly about the liner notes: just post it as reply here (PLEASE!). Anyway here you get the last gig in 1987 and the demo tape "we' re the juvenile delinquency" from 1983. Most songs of the demo are - of course in better versions - on the single, the split tape and the compilations ("single ticket to paradise" etc.), here they sound way more punk rock rooted.

The download also includes the whole scan of the cover.
Someone told me that C.C.M. had another demo tape in 1983 with nearly 15 songs, so if anyone can give some informations: drop me a line. Same goes for an original cover of this demo! Thanks.
By the way: here are some snippets from 3 old Italian video compilations including C.C.M. live in 1983 and 1986 (there are also snippets from Rawpower, Negazione, Wretched, Kina etc.). If someone can do digital versions of those videos: you' d be my hero.
Update: I was told that this Tape is still available from E.U. 91 (same goes for the Negazione live tape I wanted to post in the future)! I also found this review on their homepage:
"Another strike for the invincible E.U.'91 + Provinciattiva team. Roberto's ability was to find telephone numbers of original band members and be so friendly + persuasive to always get to the point (licence to put out official releases). With CCM this worked out contacting the former guitarist Antonio who quickly agreed about doing this diy tape + sending the original masters and a brief commentary. This C-60 features the band's Demo '83 (according to me one of their best things ever) and a brilliant soundboard recording of their very last show. Unbelieably sick and direct Granducato HC with one of the most deranged vocals ever. I always loved them to death, too bad none of their records has been reissued yet. Tons of copies sold/traded, with no doubt over 1000."
