All Music By Bangk except #7 by The Anymals, all wards by Lembric exept #5 by Bangk, #7 by fuck knows who. Recorded At Dry Ice Studio, Haifa, 1994
Stena Sracha was formed back in Spring / Summer of 1993 by Bangk and Lembrik, it was later joined by Boom on drums (also "Epydemia A", "Anus", and currently "Modelo Para Armar") and Docent on bass (also "Anus").
Here is the story of the band as told by Bangk:
"I was invited to "Epidemia A" Mishka-Hooishka's (Mikey the Prick) birthday party. The venue was chosen accordingly, it was a genuine SVALKA (dump) near Holon city. That was THE party (Boom gave Mishka a dead cat, 1mm thick, as a present, which he found on the near by highway).
I was so pissed off during the party that I actually asked Alex Mooh (also "Epydemia A") to puke on me, which he did after a few moments of hesitation (people told me that I was running after him afterwards with a huge chain, but I can't recall that.
A lot of things, that better be left untold, happened that night. Anyway, during that historic weekend Lembrik asked me to join forces with him and form a band, I agreed and he called it "Sracha" (shits) which I didn't like.
The early days
The second chapter in our history was the first session in Rehovot city. We were supposed to play there, but ... Imagine, small town, main street, 5 story residential building, on the second floor a room, which before the gig was some sort of Russian immigrants center or something similar ... well the gig was there!!! with "Epydemia A", and in between some hippy bands, that made punks even more angry, and words like "Fuck" and "Destroy" started to appear in our heads in all possible orders.
Sooner or later, this "Fucking Destroy" in residential building had to come to it's logical conclusion... well, truly "Fucking Destroy" !!! Everything inside was destroyed, including the TV set, which some naive people from the Ministry of Absorption, that allowed all this to happen, left inside... pogo... Obviously, we didn't play. We had two choices - to wait until the police will arrive, or to get the fuck out of there as soon as possible. But the most important event of that night happened much later. When we came to remains of an old building in a desolate area to spend the night. I can't recall in what context it was, but Boom said: "Stena Sracha" (The Shits Wall) which struck me straight away - that was the name !!!
The first proper gig we played in Rehovot (again ...), it was, what people call, "the second Rehovot session", was organized by the same people as was the first one, but this time it was outdoors, near the Serpentarium rehearsal garage. The funny thing (kindly speaking) is that in no other place you will find any mentioning of Stena Sracha playing there (!), so I will not write a word about those Sov-rock impotents there. The only other bands worth mentioning were "Epydemia A" and "Anus". Well, it was a very strange gig, 'coz Lembrik wasn't available, due to health problems, so I was singing, and for the first time Boom and Docent played with us (me this time). Only three songs were performed: State, Ghost and a song that was never played before nor after, with lyrics by Veronka Zaslavski (my best high school friend), it was called ... ah well, can't remember.
Boom and Docent were from the North (Haifa city and Tirat Carmel ), Lembrik lived in Holon city and I lived in Ariel, so we decided to rehearse in Haifa, in Dry Ice Studio. The three weekends in Haifa turned out to be an absolutely ecstatic experience. We not only rehearsed, but also recorded and, thanks to VJ Max (Kolia Blues), Israeli channel 2 team filmed a footage about Russian punk movement in this country, which basically was an interview with us, our friends (mostly Alex Mooh), and Stena Sracha playing State, Ghost and Act live in between.
Live In Jerusalem
Organised by Mooh, "10 years of Grazhdanskaya Oborona ("Public Defense" - the most influential Russian punk band from Siberia)". It took place in "The center for Soviet Jews" or something like that ... Due to alcohol abuse only two songs were performed. Our showman Losharic and, soon to become a Bible follower, Lembric got absolutely pissed and collapsed, Losharik on the drums and Lembrick on the audience respectively. After this kind of behavior the gig was closed by the sound man yelling: "Tak Vse Poshli Nahui !" which means "Everybody, Fuck Off !". The sound was fucked up anyway, so I was not pissed off at all.
