Scumbag Philosopher

Add Date: May 31 

Artist: Scumbag Philosopher 

Album: It Means Nothing So It Means Nothing 

Label: Words On Music 

Genre: Rock, post-punk 

Comments: The Norwich quartet Scumbag Philosopher plays post-punk that's dutifully obedient to predecessors like Gang of Four, Wire and The Fall. (Fittingly, they'll be on tour with Mark E. Smith and co. this summer.) From the driving bass lines of Adam Green to the half-spoken vocals of Grant Madden, the band makes no secret of its influences, and they pay homage quite well. Spin "Tickbox Exercise" and the self-titled track.
