It's been a while since I posted a band from France. Ivich was a three piece band from Saint Maurice. Members were also invovled in Vanilla among others. Ivich were one of the pioneering bands in the 90's in the French hardcore scene. The music is very much alike Undone and Finger Print. Noisy and messy, and kind of emotive, raw hardcore punk.

Throughout the years, they released a LP, a 10", a 7" and two 7" splits. They were featured on a lot of compilations too, most notably on the Reconstruction LP and the Illiterate compilation on Ebulliton (to be posted soon!), as well as Le Garage (to be posted too at some point...).
