Table Scraps - Autonomy
From the post-industrial graveyard of Birmingham came Table Scraps. Fusing the DNA of Black Flag, King Gizz, Melvins, Oh Sees and, yes, Black Sabbath, the trio comfortably treat rock music with all the irony and self-awareness necessary in the 21st century whilst still possessing the chops required for timeless songwriting: irritatingly strong ear worms, tectonic riffs and, perhaps most importantly, not overthinking things. After self-releasing a clutch of highly praised 7"s and an LP, as well as holding their own alongside heavyweights such as The Fat White Family, Idles, Black Lips, Yak, Buzzcocks and The Stranglers, the 'Scraps soon found interest after plays on Radio 1 and BBC 6 Music started to rack up. However, they insisted on continuing to do things their own way: self-recording, creating their own nightmare worlds in homemade zines and shooting their own B-movie style videos. 'Autonomy', the most recent album, surfaced in February 2018 to much enthusiasm. Soon after, Dave Wyndorf - of Monster Magnet - contacted the band personally to ask them to join the stoner legends on their European tour. He's one of several well-informed individuals who know that (Joe Talbot of IDLES and Grace Jones included) it's only a matter of time before Table Scraps go on to bigger and better things.
