SHOCK NEWS: LAPSUS LINGUAE EXIST
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 http://lapsus-linguae.bandcamp.com/album/you-got-me-fraiche
