TABLE SCRAPS MIX FIERY RAGE AND MELODIC GARAGE ROCK ON NEW SINGLE ‘SICK OF ME’
Table Scraps are an up and coming band from the Midlands. Heavily influenced by 60s garage rock, they embody a strong DIY ethic through self-producing their music. It’s a chaotic blend of fuzz and distortion mixed with catchy choruses and melodic hooks that have won them support in high places, with brand new single ‘Sick of Me’ getting played by Tom Ravenscroft from BBC 6 Music, and John Kennedy from Radio X. Table Scraps have also played shows with Fat White Family and Buzzcocks. The band will release their new album, ‘Autonomy’ on February 23rd on Zen Ten.
‘Sick of Me’ is a strong example of the band’s punk ethic. The lo-fi production fits works brilliantly, with an infectious guitar riff that is prevalent throughout. The reverb on the vocals pack a strong punch, demonstrating an organic, home grown sound which is a nod to the past yet fiercely distinctive. It’s most effective on the chorus: “Are you sick, very sick, very sick, very sick of me?” which is full of adrenaline and passion and will have you screaming along.
‘Sick of Me’ is so addictive; you’ll want to listen to it again and again. To coincide with the release of the album, Table Scraps are going on tour, and you can catch them in London, Sheffield, Bournemouth, Birmingham, and Bristol.
