Bio

The basis for a good song is if it makes it's creator feel cool. When you see a band posing for a photograph in mid November wearing shades, it's because they feel like this.
Scrub Flower wasn't like this in the beginning, it was just fun and nothing to be proud of. I then met a few talented musicians and their input created something worth my giving my best shot.
Then after a year there was an album and everyone had gone. I was back on my own and I got into pure dance and putting tracks on-line. Thanks to www.soundcloud.com/scrub-flower I got a lot of listens and encouragement. I then hooked up with an old friend Franck who plays a mean riff. I went down to Toulouse(south FRance) and we recorded SLOW with fake Barry White vocals,me on dub bass and Franck hitting a Killing Joke sound. It's gonna be on vinyl next year.

Scrub Flower join dance with good sounds, interactive noises aimed at people who like deep bass and moving around. Less free-style more of an edited version of chaos, just keeping the best bits. Remixing songs adding new vocals, helicopter crashes and gunfire.
All songs are made using AUDIOTOOL and a collection of other edited sounds. Some samples are homemade. Guest vocals from G-Man Jake, Ablo and Olivier Molema.
More About SCRUB FLOWER

We started recording as a group and we used real instruments and we did a kind of multi style music, we didn't have a particular sound. It was really strange. We recorded a cover of Teenage Kicks by The Undertones in a kind of New Wave sound and then did some Cold Wave. It was all going quite well but it just sounded like demos and then we kept going everything was on an 8 track which was really easy to use. I then got into free on-line synths and drum machines. In the beginning I clicked on www.onemorelevel.com and found some music stuff and then I went onto www.angryoctopus.co.nz/ and used the cool synths. Then weeks went by and we did Reggae and lots of stuff. Then POW! we found www.audiotool.com and things got much more serious. I recorded loads of tracks which I uploaded to the 8 track and got them mixed and then added vocals and percussion. THe group was me and A guy called King Pin who played a lot of guitar and bass but he abandonned the group before the album got released. So now we have a new line-up.
