Stabby Fork, described by a punter at one of the band’s recent gigs as a ‘demonic cross between Sparks and Chas ‘n’ Dave’, this piano-led song has started to become a regular feature of the group’s intense live performances. As that comparison would hint towards, the arrangement alternates between seething staccato stomp and bouncing joy with more than just a nod to The Spiders from Mars.
Stabby Fork is backed with B-side You Disgust Me, recorded in the Chronica sessions, but unable to be jammed anywhere into either parts of the album, this is another piano-based opus with The Scaramanga Six’s almost trademark elaborate overture section at the beginning. The song eventually settles into a pseudo-latin-gypsy-whatthehell? groove.
To accompany the single release of ‘Stabby Fork’, the band have also captured a dark and sickly performance in the form of a brand new music video. Take a look at this promo vid here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=dwJ2g8iCgKg
A BRIEF BIOGRAPHY:
The Scaramanga Six is the brainchild of headstrong siblings Paul and Steven Morricone. Not in any way like your conventional mindless rock-star filth, The Morricone brothers appear more like a pair of polite and softly-spoken, yet viciously intense and sadistic nightclub bouncers. Raised in the Westcountry seaside resort of Weston-Super-Mare on an education of Stranglers records (by elder brothers) and Tony Bennett records (by their Mum), the young Morricone twins discovered there was much fun to be had in crooning and shouting in equal measures. The Scaramanga Six was finally realised in the dark & drizzly backdrop of Huddersfield, West Yorkshire where the band still lurk to this very day.
TyrannoPop? Luxury Rock Noir? Schitzophonic Splattercore? – whatever you want to call it, this suave and enigmatic unit have carved their own scenester-defying niche since the mid-90’s as the most unique and creative underground rock band in the UK. Every one of these individuals is hell-bent on assaulting the ears of the unsuspecting with intense and preposterous rock and roll music.
The self-styled ‘evil pop group’ have been tearing a hole in the arse of the live circuit over recent years with their incendiary rock rituals including key slots at many UK festivals (headline set at Leeds 2007 on the Introducing stage). Their previous few albums have pulverised the minds of critics and also seen releases across Scandinavia, the Germanic countries and Japan, all through the band’s own infamous label – Wrath Records. Bookings at some of the big European festivals have also transpired (Hove Festival, Norway and Peace & Love, Sweden). All the while they have been building up and grooming a legion of die-hard crackpot fans ready to creep out from under logs or something and support the band wherever they play. And when they play, THEY SLAY.
“Soulful and subtle, yet also adventurous and abrasive, The Scaramanga Six possess all the makings of a classic band.” KKKK – KERRANG!
“Rarely does such disregard for the basic principles of songwriting provide such exhilarating results” – ROCK SOUND
