Organised Scum Biography
Despite their almost complete absence from social media and sonically-misleading name, Organised Scum have already received support in the UK from the likes of NME, Drowned in Sound, The Line of Best Fit and BBC 6Music, and from PRS for Music Foundation. Organised Scum’s debut EP was released in December 2016, with lead track ‘The Rare Gift of Healing’ selected by Spotify UK for their ‘Six Strings’ playlist. With comparisons to Mac Demarco, Blur and XTC, and recent gigs taking them from London to New York, this is definitely a band to watch for 2017.
“An enigma of sorts thus far, we’ve fallen for Organised Scum’s slovenly but delectable slices of Britpop redux… [singer] Tom Duggins emits Jarvis Cocker’s wry eye for society’s inanities over a breezy, folkinflected jaunt.” (The Line of Best Fit)
