Lis Booth's Questions
THE SCUMBAGS are A Rock/ Dance/ Surfing Band from Mayland, Italy
The 4 memeber are: LALE (vocals, guitar), STE (drums), JIM (guitar), DAVIDE (bass)
We were all members of other various bands, in 2006; we decided to enjoy this project together. In the first 2 years we had played more than 100 shows around Italy and Europe, cause we think that live shows is the best part in a band life . In 2007 we had reordered our first album, a pop punk bullet of 11 songs called LOAD, AIM...FIRE! Released by the Californian Label Slip trick records, including the schizo-romantic song “1 day romance”. Our songs are talking about what? about life, about what you like, about love, dirty love, the courage to be one's true self, without being overly serious , angry and joy, and...Energy...we wanna give you the energy to live (and more than this)! actually we're writing new energy songs with for the upcoming year.!
I Had the honour of having The Scumbags answer some q’s for me.. and here’s what they say..!
I SEE YOUR SONG WRITING FOR NEW MATERIAL. DO U COLLABORATE TOGETHER, OR IS IT JUST ONE OF YOU WHO WRITES, OR DO YOU HAVE SOME ONE TO WRITE FOR YOU?
Well usually Lale or Jim write songs and lyrics at home and then we collaborate together For the construction of them. Then we listen to songs with producer and staff. We’re actually Write lots of songs with different style, then we’ll decide which songs we’ll use for our Second CD or EP , that we hope to release in June or September 2009. I think we’ll use about 12/14 songs. We’ll back in studio in the second half of September, we hope to find soon The new label to collaborate for our second opera (:
WHAT INSPIRES YOU TO WRITE?
It depends, for the lyrics of our first album “load, aim fire” we wrote about insecurity and Dreams of rebellion, using lots of words. For our second works we’re looking for an Abstract but direct words, face to face. We don’t like to turn around things, so our new Songs will be direct. We’re actually writing new lyrics, about the energy to live, about memories and the Importance of the moment. But we don’t know how we call the second album yet.
WHY THE SCUMBAGS FOR A NAME IS IT INFLUENCED BY THE GREEN DAY SONG?
Yes for sure! (: we love green day. It was the name of band where Lale and Dave are met too, some years ago. And then they decided to keep this name, as friendship symbol. We indicate the scumbag as the devil on your shoulder, who tells you what you really want to do.
NAME SOME MAJOR INFLUENCES AND WHY?
Our major influence is...taste. We play what we like, not what is better to play now. We Play fresh music from the slums of luxury. We play from 2006, not so much, but found a Style, our style, and we’d like to become a good band keeping and improving that way. Other influences part music is to see and to live the life, or strange situation you can find Around you.
WHAT ARE YOU GUYS LIKE LIVE?
Well we’re party guys, when we’re not in studio or in session we love to be around with Friends. When we’re on tour we love to know new people before, during and after show. We like to Make some funny things sometime. Lale is the quietest of the band and sometimes he Drive naked.
WHEN DO WE EXPECT TO SEE A NEW ALBUM?
We’re actually looking for a new manager so we actually don’t know rules and time of new Album. We’re deciding graphics and title and new pic right now. We hope to back in studio in October and get ready in February, so release that in summer 2009. we’re taking a lil break from stage now, cause we wanna prepare everything as better as possible. So we need your help guys ^^
DO YOU HAVE ANY BIZARRE STORIES OF FANS?
During Baltic games festival in Poland we made an interview for a Poland TV channel where we introduce a guy as “the noisemaker”, he was a guy who still jump on stage and make a funny show during The Scumbag performance in Gdansk, jumping on stage, and on people, dancing and kissing girls on stage while we were playing. Now he’s a really good friend of us and part of staff when we’re on tour (:
HAVE YOU PLAYED OUTSIDE OF ITALY?
Yes we played an European tour in 2007 (Slovenia, Czech rep. Poland, German, Switzerland), and we’re just come back from a big concert in Gdansk, Poland. People in Poland was great, the stage was gorgeous and people still shout and dance for the entire performance. We should back on tour in Europe in end of spring 2009, and in California in December 2008 or summer 2009 (we hope both) (: Our next project is play at warped tour 2009 in the USA, we really hope to realize that.
WHAT KIND OF MUSIC DID YOU GROW UP WITH IN ITALY AND HOW DID YOU GET INTO THIS STYLE OF MUSIC YOU PLAY TODAY?
We always listened (and still) lots of Californian band, of all genres, from punk rock, to pop rock, as guttermouth, bad religion, green day, rancid, rise against, new band like my Chemical romance. Or acoustic music, with just guitar and piano you know? Or in the Soundtrack movies, you can find a lot of good stuff in it sometime (sweet, hard, sexy). And Lots of rock’n’roll, that’s the best! There’s a good in everything, we like to take the best of Everything and creating good sounds i think.
SHARE WITH US SOME COOL BAND MEMORYS,
Ooook (: During a show in Europe we and stuff drink more than club should pay us, as blues Brothers movie. The first time that we made a sold out show we didn’t sleep from more than 30 hours, we was in Poland and club was totally full, we had people on stage too. Lale and Ste are brothers. The day after a concert of us in a festival, we were around the party and we still met people who’d like to make pics with us, and we almost lost the plane to back in Italy. Load aim fire title album was chosen while we was drunk and driving from studio to the hotel. David bought his first bass with the money founded in a wallet lost on street. At the beginning we was a trio, Jim enjoy the band in the end of 2007. Our backstage and changing room (when we have one) is always full of people that we know before concert, and we invite to have fun together!

A History & collection of olde punk, oi oi sound, have for the first time together as UK Vacant, Written and Recorded some Very fine Music With out the trappings of Sista Fista, formed in 2008 as UK Vacant
A More Intense sound Has been Born. Deep, Intense thoughts and ideas, Producing some very strong songs,
And, We at Music Fanbiz are priveliged to be the first to listen and write and review
Expressing strong powerful lyrics and emotions to make people realise and express How bad this world is getting today.. as they say in their songs,,
Today, This is our time, and times are pretty shit, All sick of Taxes, & Modern Society, We all feel like Sticking up the 2 fingers at everyone who misunderstand and misunderstood,
Rant against these so called Martyr Suicide Bombers,Sing/Write about Anti Terrorism and the poor victims of innocent muslims being blamed,.
Make people realise What this World is coming too,
Make everyone realise theyre Sick of working their Balls off Day by Day just to hand it all back to the Government,
Sick of being told what to do and how to do it, this is Our Fucking World.
Expressing in other ways like songs to Piss off the Coppers,& Pigs!!, which they describe is especially a Live Performance Favorite.!
Wank & the illuminatis shared hatred for the church, not anti religion just anti establishment and in this particular case.. happens to be The church, Strongwords, Strong opinions that have Got to be heard, and what other good way is there to do it.?
of course by expressing in the music !
Every one has to get a point across i cant agree of a better way myself to express it, And it has to be heard, My Personal Favorite of the Songs i heard was THIS SOCIETY
UK Vacant does not buy into any of that Nazi Shit, "Anyone coming to us looking for a blame on race, has entirely missed the point." We wont change the World..no doubt we'll be brought down by ""The system"" If we get Loud, But we'll have a good fucking go at it and we wont make it easy for them either" !! ~UK Vacant
They all contribute with the song writing, Staying as a 3 peice band with the history of Sista Fista behind them. A brotherly bond had formed as no one else would fit in! Making more noise with the 3 of them as they did Once when 5,
During the first rehearsal, they came up with 2 songs, Then that message to themselves was clear.. "Playtime was over" Within 2 weeks, They had written 5 songs by the 3rd week, They went to the studio, recorded 3 songs,
"Recording a song as soon as you write and learn it, Really catches the moment of how it should sound, Raw, Rough and nothing but Heart" ~Wank Sinatra.
After the 3 tracks were recorded, They joined the Myspace World, which is where we found them, in June 08 at www.myspace.com/ukvacant
They were soon to realise how the whole music scene had totally changed,
"Every one downloads songs these days so there is no need for record companys and no need to censor all your songs" ! So knowing that what ever they were to record was going to end up being downloaded/file shared for fuck all,
They started up their own company "Flange Records". So they have the full control of what they can do, and i dont blame them!!
The demo contains 7 songs.
1, This Society.
This was the first song recorded by UK-VACANT, Its about how they see all the shit going on in the world and Todays society, Creating Pure Aggression and Anger into a punk tune was a good move, as it produced some excellent sounds and noise! “Out on the lash its a Saturday night, your looking around, you think your alright, But your going home in a box tonight, coz the lads in the pub, are up for a fight”. Very deep and dark what an excellent first eva song.! Wow...
2, Watching Me.?
Ranting to the world about the eyes everywhere, its all fucked up, freedoms gone .. oi oi ! Exploding agression banging out the vibe, Pure Anarchy!
3, Never Change...
Oi oi oi ! Plenty of oi oi here,! This is about sticking up the 2 fingers UP at everyone who misunderstood, and who misjudged.. double chorded offessive Pure Punk in one hit,
The one which will get their ass kicked but who gives a shit coz they dont!.. The song against the anti terrorism.. Broken hearts. Broken dreams, They Blow themselves to smitherines.. The awesome what the fuck oi oi Punk agression sound you all need.
5. Who the Fuck are You?
Dont tell us what to do.! Sick of working their balls off every fucking day, but we have to .. what the fuck? Dont do this..
