Birmingham duo Table Scraps made good on the promise after their debut single following on top notch, cacophonous garage-rock with their debut album. Sounding like Marylin Manson fronting The Stooges in place of Iggy Pop. Now imagine if that band was conceived in a garage in Birmingham, central smack in the middle of the U.K instead of Michigan, and that the year is 2015 instead of 1967, you should be pretty close to knowing what the debut album from Brum-based duo Table Scraps sounds like.

Clocking in at under 35 minutes, “More Time for Strangers” rattles and crashes towards its conclusion over the course of 12 tracks. From the unrelenting riffs of Scott Vincent Abbott’s single guitar, to the militant roll of Poppy Twist’s drums, it’s garage rock at its most fuzz-hungry and debased, and after several listens you can’t help but feel dirty in the best way possible.

Those who heard the band’s debut single The Bug will be pleased to know that it’s in good company here, with tracks like Vampyre Bite and Children of the Sky harbouring a similar darkness, stemming from Abbott’s venomous vocal delivery . Highlights include opener and second single “Electricity”.


“More Time For Strangers” was released in the summer of 2015 as a limited edition 12” vinyl and digital download through Table Scraps’ own Hells Teeth imprint in the UK, and on cassette via Burger Records subsidiary Wiener Records in the USA.
