Biography

Atavistic were a Crust/Grind/Thrash band from Whitstable, Kent (UK), formed sometime in the mid-80s. The band comprised of Jeremy Upcroft (guitar + vocals), Patrick McKernan (bass) and John Brenchley (drums). They released two EPs (“Equilibrium” and “Life During Wartime”, both 1987) and an LP (“Vanishing Point”, 1990), during which their sound evolved from ultra-chaotic Grind/Crust to a slightly groovier, Blues-tinged Thrash.

Prior to these recordings, the band were due to release a split album with Napalm Death, but this never materialised. The Napalm Death half of the split became side 2 of their legendary debut album “Scum”.
