Soldiers Of Scrape Interviews and Features
Below are our features and interviews with Soldiers Of Scrape.
Detroit, Michigan may be well known for churning out new automobiles off the assembly line but there is one mean steel machine running around called SOLDIERS OF SCRAPE that is making more noise out of the underground music scene than a Ford Pinto that should've been junked twenty years ago. Soldiers Of Scrape just took top honors for 2006's Monster Picks contest, a true testimony to just how popular this band is. They are to be featured in the upcoming Decibel magazine.

So enough of the introduction, let's scrape that bowl, shall we? More...
