Listen To Big Scout's New Album 'Council Sport'

Chris Cudby / Friday 19th August, 2022 12:18PM

Not ones to do things by halves, Blenheim / Waiharakeke's Big Scout have unleashed a whopping twelve tunes on their long-awaited new album Council Sport, out via Melted Ice Cream. Cheeky, boisterous and regularly eardrum-shredding in their post-punk guitar / bass / drums assault, the trio Jim Tannock, Matthew Hellriegel, Gregg Slatter spin slyly poetic tales of everyday shenanigans beamed out from small town Aotearoa. Singles from the past few years including 'How Lovely', 'Mr Slice', Redwood Street Massive', 'Bloke Schulz', 'Uh Oh' and 'Height of Fashion' are cheerfully tucked alongside such acerbic new anthems as 'The Bencher', 'TXT TALK' and 'Bang Average'. Clearly a labour of love, listen up to Council Sport and don't miss their whirlwind nationwide release tour this month and next, kicking off tonight at Tāmaki Makaurau's Whammy Backroom with King Ketchup and guests...
