Legion 88

Profile:
Legion 88 was a french RAC band from Essonne (South of Paris)

Legion 88 were formed in 1984 by Dominique on guitar and his brother under the name Combat 88.
Alain joined them as a singer and the band’s name became Legion 88. There were several line up changes until Fred settles on bass.
The band practice with some “Totenkopf” members at Geno’s mothers house and sometimes at Dominique’s.
Everytime at least 30 skinheads would attend the sessions and it often ended up in a small gig. Vico (drummer) and Jean Jean (guitarist) of “Totenkopf” help them out when the other musicians can not attend. When Geno dies in 1986, they have joined Legion 88.
The line up (Dominique, Jean Jean, Vico, Fread, Alain) released their first EP « Terrorsites » they have played gigs in Belgium, England (St. Georges’s Day with Skrewdriver in 1987) and Brest.
Later in 1987, Dominique leaved the band (he moved outside paris), followed by Jean Jean soon after. Ptit Bruno, their neighbour of the “19 bis” in Dravel (where Alain and the others squatted at the time) and guitarist in Nouvelle Croisade joined them. In 1988 he composed a number of songs of the “Thule” album and “Legion Blanche” EP.
The band wanted to play a farewell gig before splitting up in May 1988 in Brest, but the police stopped the concert.
