This is one of those releases which can only happen on a label belonging to the "Detour Records"... THE FIVE FACES is one of the original Mod 1979 Revival period bands from Italy, were originally active from 1980 to 1984, initially with this name and later as SX225 (name borrowed from the Killermeters’ flip side). They regrouped (with 3/4th of the original Line Up) in January 2014 and immediately started regular live activity, blending songs from the old set list, new songs and selected covers. This album was recorded in a small and warm live concert and is the ideal compendium of their first year of activity. Their style is not a clean, soft and too muchh well produced pop, but rather a fast and energetic Mod 1979 Revival with little touches of classic punk rock sound,  very likely for those who love bands such ast: Purple Hearts, The Chords or even Undertones in some songs. The guitars are few distorted but the sound is positively "rude" and direct. No effects here, just four men and their instruments designed already in 1957, the classic rock band. The members band have also other passions in their live like: scooters, girls and those paintings, posters and artwork from the 60s decade called "Pop Art" and for that reason we recommend revisited "Pop Art" works in the net, TV, etc.. Audio, visuals, friendship... all toghether have to imagine a nice saturday night next to THE FIVE FACES playing music for pleasure.
