LINK LÄRM was an italian Hardcore, Punk band from Curtarolo (Padova) active in the Early / Mid Eighties. They played with IMPACT, WRETCHED, INDIGESTI, ANTI-SECT, NO PIGS, VARUKERSD, ... .In their active time they released an eleven track demo tape and had four songs on the compilation LP “Sutura Eterna” (together with DISPER-AZIONE, ANTISBARCO and MIDGARD). They broke up around 1987, later three of them formed CONTROPOTERE together with two ex-members of ELETTROCRAZIA (from Naples). Musically LINK LÄRM were differeCONTROPOTERE that came later. Frequent rhythm changes, from mid tempo to fast, accompanied by devilish vocals spouting caustic denunciation of the political and social issues of the time and pungent guitarwork reminiscing of early BLACK FLAG works, although on the whole I´d say LINK LÄRM owe more musically to DEAD KENNEDYS than to BLACK FLAG, add to the mix some Eighties italian Hardcore, Punk flavor (IMPACT, UPSET NOISE, EU´S ARSE, ...) and you probably get an idea what LINK LÄRM sounded like.
