a place for zinesters - writers and readers
The Copy Scams are a the band equivalent to a 24 hour zine!
Steve was visiting Portland from the UK and thought it might be fun to start a band while he was in the US. While he was in Portland he lived in a closet in the basement of the Spiral
house and tricked housemates Alex, paul and Marc to form a band in three
weeks before the 2010 Portland Zine Symposium.
In those three weeks they wrote, practiced, and recorded 4 lo-fi pop punk songs about excuses as to why the zine/band was late, a list of things we like, stealing photocopies, and the 24 hour zine challege. Then played a show to end the Portland Zine Symposium weekend. You can listen to our whirlwind recording here
