SCUM OF TOYTOWN - Live @ Bowes Lyon House, Stevenage 12/3/92


What with all the demonstrations and discontent going down, I thought I’d go a bit political on the old rock’n’roll front, and it doesn’t get much better than this. It’s those legendary malcontents Scum of Toytown. This is a really early live recording from way back in 1992, which captures them rough, raw and ready! Like The Clash meeting Fairport Convention. There’s a couple of tunes that they never recorded, along with the more familiar Sink or Swim, Different Drum and possibly one of the best anti-fascist songs ever; Jackboot Crusade. One thing that struck me while listening to these eight tracks was that every word Scum sang, screamed and shouted is as relevant today as it was 17 years ago. “IN DEFIANCE I REFUSE TO BE SILENCED!”
