Digital Rituals

HELLo,

The Songs of Baron Samedi is now haunting the digital realm through all your favourite and probably hated digital retailers and is also now available direct through our BANDCAMP along with the rest of the discography...well....that you know of.




The vinyl version is still available from all over the place...just google it...including directly from CONQUEST OF NOISE.

And the tape version is also still available from all over the place...once again googling should divulge your nearest supplier...and you can get it direct from the source: SOFT ABUSE.

The One True Scrapes is stirring once again to record new music....

The Songs of Baron Samedi


To those of you who missed the news because you avoid all social media like the plague - you are very smart if so - THE SONGS OF BARON SAMEDI vinyl is well and truly out and about in your local record store, or if not then from your nearest online dealer, or the LABEL THEMSELVES.

S O N G S OF B A R ON S A ME D I Available most especially from the iconic Brisbane record store ROCKING HORSE RECORDS. Buy from them if you need some guidance.


Some very fucking exciting live news on the horizon but for now we must stay schtum....wait and see....worry ye not we Scrapes are as active as ever. AND to set the record straight...as much as we love Rocking Horse as you all know we are definitely a GUITAR AND VIOLIN DUO....drums are in the mix...but very little. IF you want violin and drums check out Adam and Tony Irving's nasty little duo next time they free your mind and leave your arse on the floor in Brisvegas.

Go on then...

Les SCRAPES

ps. THE EXCEPTIONALLY BRILLIANT TAPE VERSION IS STILL AVAIL FROM SOFT ABUSE SO.....
