Scaners, The - s/t - lp
France's The Scaners are ready to take off with their debut LP which takes the listener through a darker, slower wave that Louder Than War Magazine describes as "a swirlingly mesmeric menace of guttural growls backing a looming snarl over a dark driving rhythm." The Scaners' time is now! They're ready to launch their sonic full-scale abduction of planet Earth. With extraterrestrial titles like "Checkpoint Planet", "No Place In Space", "We Want To Talk To Your Leader" and "Flying Fuck", this album is certainly not from the traditional, third-dimensional garage-punk reality. Yes, it has the mainframe DNA of The Ramones and The Dickies, but draws heavily on classic fourth-dimensional synth spirits like Devo and Suicide, coupled with modern acolytes like The Spits and Useless Eaters.
