F.O.A.D. was started by Marco Garripoli as a skate/hardcore/thrash fanzine on Xeroxed paper. Seven issues were published between 1986 and 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 mainly releasing unreleased recordings on tape. After a long hiatus, the label came back into 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 reissues of the bands that they used to enjoy back in the real thrash/hardcore days and who were interviewed in the old F.O.A.D. ‘zine.

The basic aim of today’s F.O.A.D. is to provide top quality reissues of treasures lost in the past complete with all possible information, photos, flyers, zine interviews and unreleased material. The label is not only focused on ’80s reissues, but is also open to new bands showing attitude and originality in a musical scene contaminated by a lack of creativity and uniform to bullshit mainstream standards, forgetting what this was all about when it started.
