I'm from Parma and the local scene has started to revive after being stopped for a long time with some bands that don't refer to the old school so obviously..
In my town there's a rather famous recording studio that ''promotes'' emerging bands but it has a horrible ambience..full of drugs and if you haven't got friends in the studio it's almost impossible to join in..as if it were only for the privileged..then again many prefer the way of DIY but it isn't easy.
So I think I remain among the few people here who still believe in the old principles..now it's more about money than passion..
The people who support the local scene are becoming less and for the bands it is difficult to escape from the niche..and this is a shame because there are bands that certainly deserve more..
