Five years ago Johnny G. String left the band he co-founded, the punk rockers Bloody & The Transfusions, to form a new band more focused on metal. He met up with the brothers Justin and Joe Slater-Webster, along with the personable Jacob Mudd, and the Scrappers were born. The Scrappers hail from the Midwestern city of Washington, Illinois.
The Scrappers are old school metal heads. They don’t try to sound like any band – they just do what comes natural. Along its 5-year odyssey the band has experienced a bit of adversity. Johnny G. String sometimes drinks way too much whiskey, and likes to fight. Jacob falls off the planet or it seems like it and something is always up with him. Joe sometimes forgets how the song starts and sometimes he is in his own little world. Justin is just way too nice; he has to be reminded “You’re a Scrapper damn it, Scrappers aren’t nice!
