Tracklist: S.C.U.M - Amber Hands

Groovy, doomy music. It's a great signifier for all sorts of records as long as you don't let on that it was coined by Clive James to describe the BBC Election '74 theme. It suits S.C.U.M., unarguably the best band to feature the brother of one of the Horrors, to a tee. In fact they come on much like the Horrors after too much Jesus & Mary Chain, epic vocals over forceful synth drones and the barely hidden intention of taking us all down with them. You can see the phalanx of onstage flickering strobe lights in your mind's eye.
