The Scurge - born 2000
In the year 2000 of our Lord,(Tony
Gubba), Messrs BJH III and the Hood, decided that a life clearing
cheese from plates du jour and playing in dull thrash-folk bands
was no way to spend the twilight years of their thirties and therefore
grasped the bull by the nettle and landed upon the idea of creating
an, ever so fun and somewhat tongue in cheek, punk outfit.
It was over a pint at the local that
the services of everyones favourite super hero, Captain Marbles,
were recruited, followed by that one man band (solo bass act only)
Muff, who had retired to Crayford to study beer mats and their bearing
on the economy of Latvia. Nevertheless, both chaps saw the potential
in creating something that would last for decades if not minutes.
Song titles, music & lyrics flowed
following a few glugs of the black stuff. Such classics as; Marbles
Up Me Arse, Camembert, Blonde Downstairs and the yet to be finished
Grandad's On Fire, oozed with lavatorial humour and cheesy riffs.
The band have appeared on numerous
occasions. I saw them once in Brentwood high street, possibly researching
for more lyrics, or perhaps collecting a new filter for the Dyson.
If you get the chance catch them on tour, they're shite!
