LE SCRAWL - Wintersun


For the fourth time already the German experimenters called LE SCRAWL will come to dash us to pieces! Grind core charge with the elements of jazz, ska and some other musical subgenres, underlined by great saxophone, is what makes LE SCRAWL well-known all over the world !!! The inception of LE SCRAWL dates back to 1989 when they were, with this style, a true revelation on the scene. Their first demo is followed by the offers to release their first recordings and so the 7-inch "Scrawl" and especially their opus magnum, a mini CD called "Q" in 1995, are put out!!!

Since that time LE SCRAWL have secured an honorable position on the underground map and released further recordings with the latest one being an album titled "Snowblind" at Obscene Productions in 2010. LE SCRAWL are back after a hiatus and we believe you are looking forward to their disparate and tricky melodies just like us!!!


Le Scrawl came into being in 1989 set out to play intense grindcore, their name an a pros pos reflection of the genre's abrupt style. Like a pervasive itch, however, came their many other musical influences; really, every kind of musical influence one can imagine.

Having recorded a demo in 1992, Le Scrawl finally hit the stage in 1993. Le Scrawl consistently proved they could blast with the best of them, only to boggle minds and challenge their listeners notions with such incongruous, yet skillfully played interjections of differing musical styles.

Le Scrawl continued to record as well; a seven inch (making it to the number 1 spot at KSZU/ Stanford, Ca), two mini CDs (incl. Cover songs by Chic, Terrorizer, DelaSoul etc. on “Rotten fake” also feat. Agathocles and 7 MxOxNx) and more, the bands sound evolving further and finding confluence in that which was once so contradictory.

The Le Scrawl discography, entitled "Too short to ignore," released in 2003, showcases the complete and sometimes hard-to-find studio work of this unique grind troupe, along with a peppering of live tracks.

Hardly a swan song release, Le Scrawl forged onward, with the release of their CDEP “Eager to please” in 2004 recorded by legendary producer Harris Johns. In 2006 they released a DVD of live stuff taped during their tour in California and at the Obscene Extreme Festival (2004) entitled “Full Frontal Nudity” and in 2008 “Whisky a gogo!” and in 2010 "snowblind" both recorded by Harris Johns came out.
