Scum System Kill-Demo

From their myspace:
Formed from the ashes of World on Welfare, Charcoal Human and Aphra Behn, Scum System Kill started in February '05, and played bodge-core shows a few weeks later. In the true spirit of punk rock Scum System Kill recorded a demo two months after being together, then they all fucked off overseas for adventures (except for Cathy who remained frozen in a vat), causing trouble from the G8 summit, to K-town, to Clitfest. But the Aussie sheilas all returned home and played shows in summer 05/06. All too soon Jyoti absconded to live in Seattle, at which point Scum-Kissed-'Em-Bill came on board on guitar and also recorded some accordion on their split 7" with Poodles of Nuke 'Em High from New Zealand.... cross tasman carnage! grrl crust attack! After some more travelling and with some new songs under their collective belts Scum System Kill headed to northern NSW with brain resin, did a tour with poodlez across the North Island of New Zealand, and played Brisbane, Canberra and out at the old growth forest in east gippsland. In january 2007 ssk played a mighty show with Jyoti, who was back in Australia for a short time, and with Cathy for the last time. She decided to leave the band as she needed time and energy to focus on her other projects including shotwithdesire.com Sophy J took on the lyrical stylings for Scummers, with some back-ups from Bekka from time to time. Scummers were often to be seen with newest member, Monica who stood in for accordion breakdowns whenever possible! SSK decided to play amerikka and toured from san francisco to vancouver in 2007 and released the A.N.T.I. C.O.P.Z. USA tour CD EP.... the nice people at langt ner in France have released this CD on tape in euro>> you can get one at www.langtner.narod.ru in may 2008 sophie announced that she was old and her voice was broken and couldn't banchie scream any longer.... sophie took on second guitar and kallies the totes brutes gutteral roarer from poodles on of nuke 'em high came on board to cut sick in the vocal department... ssk started playing shows with this new line up in august 2008 and have plans for a 12", more touring in Australia and beyond into the universe! you might see members & past members playing around in seattle or london, or in Vae Victis, Mutiny, Walrora, Crux, hee haw or marching bands of New Orleans or in the circus...
