Scraps (Raising Hell #19)

Now that ‘Scraps’ (homebase: Lille, France) are doing concerts again after quite a big hiatus, I thought it was appropriate to re-publish this interview from their early days. It dates from the period where they evolved from a noisy chaos-core band with a bit of a drunk-punk attitide to a more political band with less intoxicated minds. The Dutriaux brothers had just enlisted Tomoy as bassist & Xavier as drummer, and were about to record their LP for Be Yourself recs (Wrapped Up In This Society)…

Interviewer was (my penpal) Ben ‘Sicko’ Cooper, whose zine – Raising Hell – was a standard/reference to (hardcore)punx worldwide. It appeared upto 3-4 times a year and was packed with interviews, a letter-section, columns and reviews. He was active in and around the 1in12 scene (Bradford/Leeds). In the early 90s he moved to London and changed the name of his zine into You’re So Hideous (and operated from the 121 Railton Rd squat in Brixton).
