Sbrang Gabba Gang: Gabber Reconstruction of the Universe, by Riccardo Balli
By an Italian but in English, written in a style that resembles the LOUD energy of a S.Wells sluiced through the unforgiving yet gleeful anti-humanism of a Biba Kopf, this monograph maps Italian Futurism onto gabba, and vice versa. So it's an intellectual entertainment - penned by one who knows viscerally whereof he speaks... who's sweated and stomped in the four-to-floor forge 'till the crack of dawn, and beyond... been battered by drop-hammer bassdrum and blasted by hoover-noise... soaked up the sensations and survived to make sense of the senselessness.
