Bio: The Scissors bring you carnival freakshow organ, primitive synths, and rock’n’roll guitar powered psychpunkpop!
Their influences are many and varied, but their sound has been likened to: The Teardrop Explodes, The Doors, The Chameleons, Wire, The Damned, Magazine, XTC.
"An exuberant performance from Cambridge stalwarts The Scissors impressed the growing audience, their sharp pop songs a riot of colourful Hammond organ flavoured keyboards, edgy guitar, crescendos of drums and punching bass, with some interesting lyrical twists. Hopefully a new CD is due soon, to include the dark blues of ‘Why Don’t You Cry?’ currently one of the standout songs in their live set."
