Scrounge is Lucy and Luke. They are guitar
drums and a mic. The two members met at Goldsmiths
and immediately threw themselves into South London's fertile DIY arts scene with a number of projects. Eventually
these coalesced into Fame Throwa Records
an underground music and promotions collective operating predominantly around the Five Bells venue
genre-blending post-punk of Scrounge.
‘Etch’ is their first single for fierce panda
and profoundly well named it is
it being both edgy and itchy
propelled along by little more than Luke’s sturdy rhythm and Lucy’s half-sung / half-drawled vocals for the first 90 seconds. There’s a hint of an early PJ Harvey-style sullen grandeur to proceedings
and the shattered Banshees-esque guitar which crashes in around one minute 44 seconds really is a sound to behold.
Having spent the summer holidays impressing all and sundry at The Old Blue Last
Paper Dress Vintage and Servant Jazz Quarters (with fellow Goldsmithians Another Sky) Scrounge are now prepping intensely for these excellently-placed shows here and here:
