The Scumbrians - Throw em Away.
The Scumbrians are a young band from Whitehaven, Cumbria who went down very well when I saw their set in Lancaster a couple of months ago. Since then they've been busy putting the finishing touches to their debut album and they'll be unleashing it next week (29 Oct). They've also won their way through to the final of Cumbria's Battle Of The Bands competition, the final takes place in January and they'll be hoping to land the £1000 prize in order to splash out on new equipment.
The line up of the band features Luke Norman (vocals), Jake McAllister (guitar), Kristie Mason (bass) and Ryan Hodgson (drums). Give them a like and get more info on Facebook..... https://www.facebook.com/scumbrians/
Definitely a band to watch, they recently supported Bad Manners and the new album is sure to bring them to the attention of a wider audience. They sing about the stuff that's going on around them, mixing up serious commentary with songs that might just see them sticking their tongues into their cheeks (if you've heard the track Jimmy Saville you'll know what i mean!). The song you'll find below is a modern day call to wrap up the rockets entitled Throw Em Away......
