Skabbs , The "Idle Threat" LP
Criminally under looked repress on Jackpot!
First time ever issued – a street date 35 years in the making.
Includes band history and unpublished photos.
Jackpot Records is proud to present IDLE THREAT, a collection of never before issued recordings from 1977-78 Lawndale, California punks, The Skabbs. In tandem with the birth of punk, these music obsessed nerds, bored and listless at the end of the 70’s, became disenchanted with the increasingly plastic tendencies of modern music. The Skabbs concocted some truly outsider sounds, melding jagged Devo-esque rhythms with lightning-fast technical touches that predicted the Minutemen by a few years.
