F.O.A.D. was started in 1986 by Marco Garripoli as a skate-Hardcore-Thrash fanzine on Xeroxed paper. 7 issues were published (1986/1990), all of them limited to a few hundred copies.
In the years to follow F.O.A.D. gradually turned into a DIY label mainy releasing unreleased recordings on tape.. After a long hiatus the label came back to activity in 2006 with some co-productions of local HC bands on CD.
In fall 2009 F.O.A.D. Records started a series of vinyl releases mostly dedicated to re-issues of the bands that we used to enjoy back in the real Thrash/Hardcore days and that were interviewed in the old F.O.A.D. ‘zines.
The basic aim of today’s F.O.A.D. is to provide top quality re-issues of treasures lost in the past complete with all possible informations, photos, flyers, zine interviews and unreleased material. The label is not only focused on ’80s re-issues but also open to new bands showing attitude and originality in a musical scene contaminated by lack of creativity and uniformed to bullshit mainstream standards, forgetting what this was all about when it started.
