SCARS - The, Live, Demo and Peel EP


The Scars, from Edinburgh, one of Scotland’s first punk bands, formed in 1977 and split around 1982 by then they were just Scars. The fact that their first single the classic Adultery/Horrorshow wasn’t released until 1979 saw them labelled ‘post punk’ by the music media, they sounded like a poppier Gang of Four, yet on the cover of their only album Author, Author they looked like a punk Spandau Ballet, and on some numbers, they even sounded like one, check out Turn Me On from their second Peel session in 1981, it’s one of the 4 songs you can get if you click here, you also get Romance By Mail from a 1978 demo and 2 versions of Remember Me, a live one from Groningen in Holland and a Peel Session one. All great stuff. Franz Ferdinand Fuck Off!

Cheers nuzz - after my recent scottish phase, I have been looking at *that* auction site for any of the bands on those comps. Haven't had much luck yet - but did find a large ammount of N.Ireland stuff - as featured in "Stand Up & Spit", so it's not all bad!
