S.C.U.M – “Again Into Eyes” – [Mute Records]
This five-piece band from London plays really cool music that some call post-punk. I call it reminiscent of bands like Simple Minds due to the distinctive vocals of Thomas Cohen (he’s not Scottish, but still, it’s all the UK). The Society for Cutting Up Men (a 1968 feminist manifesto) is the long version of the band’s name. Lyrics are printed out on an insert, but it’s nicest just to let the music create its own atmosphere and have your mind make what it will of the nice British accent. Melissa Rigby is the only girl, and she is also the drummer. There’s guitar, bass, keyboards, and artsy pictures in the packaging. Enjoy to the max.
