The Scam - 1986-1988 Discography



I first heard The Scam in the early '90s on the Apocalyptic Convulsions compilation (which is the first song in this collection), and it was the only material i heard from this band up until i recently discovered the band's discography online. The Scam were a hardcore band from New Hampshire. Hard to describe, but it's very dark and vicious hardcore punk, with post-punk/goth elements. Like some psychotic, psychedelic combination of Rudimentary Peni, The Accused, early Christian Death and Urban Waste. What can i say, it just has to be heard to be believed.

I'm pretty sure this is a complete collection of the band's recorded material, most (if not all) released on Ax/ction Records. Check out the band's tribute Myspace page here. Enjoy.
