First ever show of ‘Raw Power‘ in Belgium – organised by Werner Excelmans (for the 1st time in the big venue in his hometown), on 86-06-06; together with ‘Negazione’, ‘No Pigs’ & ‘Cyclone’. Recordings courtesy of Kurt Christiaens.

This was the year their LP After Your Brain was released so I believe the band played here with Helder Stefanini (drums); Maurizio Dodi (bass; or was it ‘Ale’ Alessandro Paolucci?), Giuseppe Codeluppi (guitar; R.I.P.) & Silvio Stefanini (guitar; or was it Davide Devoti?). I don’t see Mauro Codeluppi (vocals) on the pictures though… [In an interview that appeared in the Belgian zine Het Schandaal #10, ‘Stel’ mentions that Mauro wasn’t present – a problem with his vocal chords or his job…]


The pictures show Silvio (lead-guitar), Giuseppe (rhythm-guitar), ‘Ale’ (bass) and Helder (drums). I thought I recognised my voice in the songs but then again I could be wrong: on the photos there’s no one near a mic! Maybe it’s just my brother singing with Silvio?

A few years later I got some records and a comprehensive promo-pack in the mail from the label Sonic Attack that was promoting ‘Raw Power’. Here’s a few clippings from that:
