Album: It Means Nothing So It Means Nothing (US/world: April; UK: 13 June 2011)



Conceived as a sort of situationist prank by a group of Norfolk (UK) based misfits Scumbag Philosopher are a nihilist-baiting mismatch of a crazed girl mauling her two drum kit. a grumbling, misanthropic, borderline aspergers front man and cascading, caterwauling guitars. They make an odd yet still strangely catchy kind of post-punk racket - alienated, knowing and not afraid of wearing its smartness on its sleeve. Lyrical focus is on the absurdity of office life, celebrity and hipness.

Signed to painfully-hip US label Words On Music, Scumbag Philosopher line-up two releases later in the year - the “God Is Dead So I Listen To Radiohead” single (with its crazed companion promo vid) and the album “It Means Nothing So It Means Nothing”. ETA for both slabs of angular yet wry alienation: spring 2011.

Indie obscurantists may notice a similarity between Scumbag Philosopher and sometime Norwich grumble punkers F*** Dress. The latter moniker has been sold, for a considerable purse, to a well known youth fashion retailer who will use it for a new line of edgy urban clothing for the swearier young woman.
