I first became aware of S.C.U.M., bloddy terrible name, earlier this year when they covered a track by Big Deal on a RSD single. Since then I have bought a couple of 12" singles both of which are pretty good. The band seem to me tyo be ploughing the same furrow as the Horrors and I would certainly not classify them as Shoegaze as I saw somewhere on the net. They have released four singles and one album and I'm sure I read somewhere that the album was being re-released which would be strange since it only came out last year.
Here is title track of their second single.
S.C.U.M. - Whitechapel
