Within only a couple of months since their formation in September last year they had been invited to support Blossoms on their UK tour, spent every waking hour working on new material, recorded demos in hotel corridors and sold out their hometown Manchester shows with ease. They’ve had accolades from Paul Weller and nights out with Donovan (who offered them one of his previously unreleased songs).
They’re bold, their sound is fresh and they’re not afraid to experiment musically and speak their mind lyrically. They’re a charismatic four-piece fuelled by a mutual desire to make people move.
Scruff of the Neck are described as a collective “making waves we shouldn’t ignore” (Hattie Pearson, Radio X) and a ”Super-cool imprint” (Manchester Evening News).
