The Nineties in Italy, were characterized by an unprecedented musical production, which have found a new convergence widespread political emergency – fueled in large part by the detachment of the eighties – and the rediscovery of the expressions of oral tradition. Although it could be argued that in those years there was turmoil in many parts of our country – as evidenced by the bands that have emerged from the underground scene mainly linked to social centers, such as Banda Bassotti, Ustmamò, Casino Royale, Pitura Freska, Mau Mau – this process has found fertile ground in particular to Naples, where groups have flourished as Almamegretta, Bisca, 24 Grana, 99 Posse. The latter publish, in 1993, “Curre curre Guagliò”, the album is also the soundtrack of the film “Sud” by Gabriele Salvatores and won the Tenco Award for best album in dialect. Now, twenty years later, the 99 Posse republish that record, “rearranged, reinterpreted, re-read, and sounded” – as you can read in the band’s website – plus four new songs and many artists on the contemporary scene, to make tribute to the poster of the posse and the Neapolitan group that, after all this time, is still standing and is preparing to present a preview Saturday, March 1st at the Galleria Principe of Napoli. The official release of the new edition of the disc, which maintains the same title with the addition of some sort of reassurance “is not a step backwards”, is scheduled for March 25.
