There has always been very little information about Rancid X, so little that even their supposed hometown Milan turned out to be wrong. The boys were actually from Torino. Another and maybe more serious misunderstanding is that Rancid X were definitely not punk. As with most of the young bands of the era, they were simply influenced by the new wave and were not afraid of mixing up elements like immediacy and sharpness with a classic RnR background, where Lou Reed and the Rolling Stones seemed to be the main inspirations. Rancid Xs lone album was released in early 1979 in a dark and disquieting cover. "Voices" was a very appropriate title, evoking intense emotions. Even though, Rancid Xs adventure ended quickly, they were rediscovered and finally got some glory in the second half of the 90s, when the release of bootleg compilation series like "Killed By Death" and "Bloodstains" suddenly sparked interest in the least known punk bands of the late Seventies. Today, they have been totally rescued from oblivion. At last.
