Stygmate, band & organization based in Paris , is rock’n rollesque hyper activity. They roam the bars, squats, catacombs, youth clubs, associations and parties by Hexagon since 1994 and have shared the stage with bands such as Parabellum , Les Thugs , Warum Joe , Skip The Use, Gogol Premier, Diego Pallavas, Miss Helium, Wunderbach, The Vibrators, UK Subs, Trotskids, Les Ramoneurs de Menhirs, Lipstick Vibrators , etc, etc. ..
“Stygmate is a sequence of fragile punk rock, wobbly tubes, sharp, with a strong identity. The small brother of OTH, Rats and Parabellum , with hints of the 70 ‘s, it has the taste of the rotten gutters of Belleville, the galley and an unalterable faith in rock’n’roll.” Batbat
