Table Scraps unveil howling garage rock banger ‘Sick Of Me’

The Birmingham group are also headed off on tour this month

Last time we checked in with Birmingham trio Table Scraps, they were dishing up sneering, grizzled punk on the visceral snarl of recent single ‘My Obsession’.

Now, the band are back with newie ‘Sick Of Me’ - a more bop-able slab of garage rock that invites you to shake a leg as well as hurl yourself in the pit.

Of the track, the band’s Scott Vincent Abbott states: “’Sick of Me’ is about when friendships stagnate and minor annoyance gives way to mouldering resentment. Then juxtapose that feeling on top of a jangly sunshine pop backdrop (or as close to that as we ever get!). The echo of our breeze block 5m x 5m (and very un-soundproofed) room also perfectly suited the track’s claustrophobic feel. It’s dedicated to everyone just about keeping a lid on telling that one person how you really feel and cutting them loose.”

After a run of rather exciting support slots with Idles, Yak, Fat White Family and more, the band are also heading back out on the road imminently. This month, they’ll play a string of dates with, among others, Black Lips and Swedish Death Candy, while next February they’ll be going it alone on a headline tour.
