Penelopes presents The Scutches & The Atoms UK TOUR
THE SCUTCHES were formed in Long Island, New York in 2002, influenced by legends such as Richie Valens, Buddy Holly, The Beatles, The Beach Boys and The Ramones. The Scutches recorded their first EP shortly after and have released a full length album almost every year since 2009. Although they have had various line-up changes over the years, main man Vinnie continues to keep The Scutches touring all across the US and now, this year to the UK with Derby band The Atoms with whom they are set to release a split EP.
"Super short, sharp no fucking about tunes with lots of ohhhs ahhss wooos wees... Beach Boys meets The Damned, fucking mental, The Ramones would approve".
[SOHO STRUT REVIEW]
"This trio mesh upbeat 70's three-chord punk with bubblegum pop, er, occasional doo-whop and some fantastically silly lyrics, Move over The Pipettes - you have punk rock challengers coming your way! 8/10
Tim Newbound [ROCK SOUND MAGAZINE]
"They play ridiculously catchy, geeky pop punk in the vein of The Nobody's and Schreeching Weasel."
Rob Mair [BIG CHEESE MAGAZINE]
"...their raw garagey sound even brings to mind the legendary Supercharger".
