Lapsus Linguae


From out of nowhere, a sudden resurrection: new sounds, the web site updated, a Facebook page appearing barely a week ago.  The ‘Guae are back

Lapsus Linguae were (are?) a four-piece from Glasgow; they existed from around 1999, releasing an EP (Parade EP) and one album, You Got Me Fraiche.  A second album (titled This Is Puberty ) sadly never emerged, but fragments exist in the form of demos and a radio session.  Lapsus Linguae were a phenomenal live band, and their compositions combined lyrical, melodic and conceptual depth with the energy, aggression and humour of a wilfully pretention-free teenage metal band.

Their idiosyncratic web site still exists – jump to some downloads here:
has been revived into a less quirky but easier to use place, and if you want downloads, the whole of their magnificent only album You Got Me Fraiche is here
