Way back in the year 2015 the Birmingham garage/psych wizards Table Scraps dropped their excellent masterpiece More Time For Strangers. It was a blitzkrieg of guitar squall, hyperactive drumming, and banshee howls that could resurrect the dead and make those zombified ghouls bang their heads and pump their skeletal fists. It was a raucous example of how rock and roll can still be fun and a little dangerous.
Well lo and behold our Table Scraps have returned, hungrier and gnarlier than ever with one of their best songs yet. “My Obsession” is a dark and doomy jangle that sounds like a cross between Alice Cooper, The Misfits, and The Kills on a bourbon bender. Their sound is more precise and deadly this time around. The vocal swirl of Scott Vincent Abbot and Poppy Twist is spot-on, bringing to mind New York City’s White Hills and in spirit X. Seriously folks, this thing rocks. Just listen:
