On December 16, 2017 the Pentagon officially confirmed that there was, in fact, a $22 million US government program to collect and analyze “anomalous aerospace threats” – government-speak for UFOs and aliens.
Over the water in Lyon, France The Scaners didn’t need any official acknowledgment of this, as it would appear from the band’s eponymous debut LP that they’ve had first-hand knowledge all along. And they might, perhaps, have been co-conspirators, riding shotgun in various spacecraft, playing a sci-fi synth-punk rock game of cat and mouse and somehow evading the US government’s “Advanced Aviation Threat Identification Program”.
Now it’s 2018 and the crackpots and tin-foil hat brigade have had the last laugh. The Scaners’ time is now! They’re ready to launch their sonic full-scale abduction of planet Earth.
With extraterrestrial titles like “Checkpoint Planet”, “No Place In Space”, “We Want To Talk To Your Leader” and “Flying Fuck”, this album is certainly not from the traditional, third-dimensional garage-punk reality. Yes, it has the mainframe DNA of The Ramones and The Dickies, but draws heavily on classic fourth-dimensional synth spirits like Devo and Suicide, coupled with modern acolytes like The Spits and Useless Eaters.

Rhythm & Blues, Garage Punk, Blues… Twangy stuff… Call it what you want!

What happens when you take a pop song, tear it to pieces and start again?
More Kicks is an explosion that will hit you in the stomach and make your heart beat faster.
Pop can be dumb; garage can be clever; punk can be fresh; rock and roll can be revitalised.
More Kicks is the feedback in the riff, the distortion on the mic and the strain for the high note.
You rip it up and then you put it back together. You watch it go up in flames and then you rebuild.
More Kicks is a pop explosion.
