Scrambled Eggs covers “Leipzig Memories” by The Zorries
The synthesizer wraps around you like cold wet gangue whilst the bass and drums cloud over a leaden sky that is soon electrified by flashes of guitar. As if in response to the almost military rigidity of the Irish trio’s East German "Leipzig Memories" propaganda, Scrambled Eggs’ version favours cracked voices and notes, a nod to the imminent fall of the fissured Berlin Wall.
Scrambled Eggs (Beyrouth, Lebanon)
With 10 albums to their credit, Scrambled Eggs, made up by Charbel Haber (vocals and guitar), Tony Elieh (bass) and Malek Rizkallah (drums), is one of the most exciting and prolific bands in Lebanese rock. Instigators of three LPs between 2002 and 2004, a 6-title EP made just after the war against Israel in 2006, the trio has also distinguished itself by composing soundtracks for film, in particular for directors Joanna Hadjithomas and Khalil Joreige. In 2009 and 2010, within the framework of the experimental rock label "Kafta's Johnny Kids Menu", the trio increased their collaborations and turned their talent to investigating more adventurous sound. These sessions gave rise to two concept albums published in 2010. Their last album to date is "Peace Is Overrated and War Misunderstood", a collection of B-sides and demos that was published on the “Rupture” label in December 2010.
