Oncle Slam (Fra) Skate Gremlins; tape (1988)


side Aside B

This skate-core (some said straight-edge hardcore) band was from the region around Pau (in the Pyrenees of southern France). The guys playing in the band were ‘Spontex’ Nicolas Volle (drums/vocals), ‘Lö’ Laurent Elissalde (bass), ‘Marmott’ Thierry Courcet (guitar) & ‘Yopi’ (guitar).

After this demo (also referred to as Make It Boneless see review in Trust #13 -July ’88- by Armin Hofmann) they recorded their LP First Attack which was released on the Parisian label Jungle Hop International. The tape was reviewed in my Tilt! #5: >>Mostly fast and intense HC. Teenager-lyricsbut well intented. Rather good…<<

In the early 90s they became ‘Hate Force’ (a trio), the first french NY HC band. Later these guys started the metalcore band ‘Pantin Hilare’.
