From our friends at Area Pirata , to day we are featuring , The Scrubs. Very cool primitive garage beat stuff that makes you dance and shake your head grooving to the beat. I think it safe to say that all you garage rockers out there will dig on the sounds of , The Scrubs….
From Area Pirata Rec:
In a small town like Lodi, when you find someone who is also a garage-beat fan then you just have to say “Ok,man – let’s put a band together…” so that’s exactly how The Scrubs were born.
Fuelled by a mutual interest in beat and garage culture the two, Max and Jean, decided to create a band with a sound heavily laden with reverberation and fuzz. The band was soon joined by bassist Pepe and drummer Luca then later by Alessio on rhythm guitar. In no time at all they each learned to love where the Scrubs Project was taking them to.
Within a few months the band had found its own identity and recorded their first 7″ single at Elf Studios to be co-released in conjunction with Area Pirate Records.
As of now the band is busy preparing for live performances and getting ready to provide good vibrations for all lovers of 60’s and 80’s garage music.
