Twenty-five years after its first appearance, “Epica Etica Etnica Pathos” brings back to the public the 1990 disc, never performed live, gathering together the four historical members Gianni Maroccolo, Massimo Zamboni, Francesco Magnelli and Giorgio Canali, the two female voices Ginevra Di Marco and Angela Baraldi, and some of the most interesting musicians and singers of the following generations such as Lo Stato Sociale, Appino, Brunori Sas, Max Collini and Francesco Di Bella.
“Epica Etica Etnica Pathos” is the fourth album of the Italian punk rock group CCCP Fedeli alla linea, published in 1990 by Virgin Records. Appearing as a double, it was the last disc of the group which disbanded shortly afterwards.
The disc was recorded from April to June 1990, almost wholly as a live recording at Villa Pirondini, an abandoned eighteenth-century farmhouse in the countryside of Reggia Emilia, near Rio Saliceto. The natural echo of daily space was used rather than the glossy uniformity of a modern recording studio. Furthermore, the recording and sound mixing were done analogically, as is highlighted in the notes on the cover: «All the dirt of the 90s and the technology of the 70s».
