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 songs then played a show to end the Portland Zine Symposium weekend.
What we recorded was 4 songs about stealing photocopies, excuses as the why the band/zine is late and a song about the 24 hour zine challenge. Up the analog zine punks!
