UP! SCUMBAG: Reality TV Casualty: CD

Mar 29, 2011

This band’s name is a reference to the British show The Young Ones, and they throw in a cover of the show’s theme song. The singer sounds like Billy Joe (Green Day), but more in a coincidental way than anything else. The first few songs on this are okay, but then they brought in a saxophone, and then they covered Bob Marley’s “Redemption Song.” Sadly for Up! Scumbag, either one of these offenses is akin to running a red light during a driver’s test: automatic fail. If this were a cereal, it’d be a bowl of regular Chex that you start eating and it’s fine, but then you walk away for minute, come back, take a bite of mushy-cereal-nastiness, and say, “No thank you.”
