Big Black - Il Duce

The back cover reads:
"This record is dedicated to the memory of the Bambino, Il Duce Benito Mussolini, whose life has been an inspiration to us all."
The B-side is "Big Money", a song about corrupt cops that appeared on the fantastic LP Atomizer.

This is a 1992 re-release of material from 1985. This single apparently caused Big Black to ditch Homestead records, as they released it in 1985 without their consent, and this was re-released by Touch and Go (with permission). Great little 7".

A: Il Duce
B: Big Money
Enjoy!

  2. This is a great single and why Touch & Go won't repress this and release it again (but on CD) is a shame.
    Mine's still somewhere boxed up back in the UK. So, cheers for the post.
