Profile Scoundrel were a very underrated band from the late 80s coming St. Gallen, Buchs area, released this 5-tracks demo tape in 1988. The album has no-frills, stripped-down like East Coast hard rock, sounding a lot like a scruffier Dirty Looks. Thurling has unique voice, very high-pitched but quite rough at the same time, but suited perfectly for the music. Good musicianship and songwriting on this mini album from a band that never got too much attention from the big labels at the time.
