Here we are again and i hope you had drunk days and nights during the holidays of last weeks. Happy new year, crusty new year to everyone out there.
Here we go with the first post of the year and Scraps is the first French band. They were formed in Liile in mid 80's and were active till early 90's. They released some ep's and two lp's:"Apartheid" 7" in 1986(Aaltrack), Aaargh" 7" in 1987(Aaltrack),a flexi split w Don Don in 1989(MCR Company), the "Wrapped up in this society" lp in 1990(Be Your Self Rec.s), the "Crush Europe '92 (7",1992,Ammunition Rec.s), the "Dismantle the machine one cog each time" lp in 1994 on X-Mist Rec.s and a split 7" w Atentat Sonore in 1995 (Panx Production). Not sure if this is their complete discography though so fill the blank spaces if something s wrong..
"Apartheid" is their first vinyl and it consists six tracks of extreme hardcore heavily influenced by the japanese scene of 80's: Raging riffs, ultra fast tempos and angry japanese styled shouting vocals. side A is a piece of pure Japcore all the way but in side b in "Le Pen fuck you" they slow down and sound like a UK band in the vein of Disorder, in "Make noise not music" they return to chaotic Japcore and in the final track they finally stop in UK, singing along a drunk tune. The sound is raw and the cover folds out and becomes poster with artworks, special thanks and lyrics in English and French (included in .rar). English lyrics deal about "rock stars" and racism, is there anyone out there from France who wants to help the the French speaking tracks?
Scraps also had recorded a tape demo in 1985 where a version of "Le Pen fuck you" was included
1: Dιsarme ou creve (Disarm or die)
3: Dieu doit crever (God must die)
4: Le Pen fuck you
5: Make noise not music
6: Alcolos (the alcoholics)
