***Formed in 1978, SOGGY started with covers of Alice Cooper, Black Sabbath, MC5 and the Stooges but quickly began writing their own songs and developed a unique style, mixing hard rock and punk rock in a Stooges vein. In April of ’81 the Waiting for the War 7” was released and a video was shot for French TV. After more than 100 concerts the band split in July of 1982 but their cult status has only grown over the years. The French label Memoire Neuve released their record in an edition of just 500 copies and it is now long out of print. Original copies of that LP and the single are now in hot demand in collector circles, with original copies of the single selling for over $200. This release from Outer Battery is the full LP, including the tracks from the Waiting for the War single!
"France’s unstoppable monsters of mayhem put Motor City in your Motorhead. Face punching riffs, complete destruction, who the hell else could spit Iggy off the stage? They did in 1980. The power of Beb compels you."—Brian Turner/WFMU
