Like so many of those intense bands of the time, their fire burnt brightly for just a relatively short time, but the shadows it cast, and the colourful musical legacy they bestowed the punk scene, were both important and influential. Now there back & 2009 has been the release of the long awaited new album "SKuM" discography: 7"s: 'The ABW EP' (Abrasive, 1981) 'Vicious Circle' (Riot City, 1982) 'Army Song' (Riot City, 1982) 'Burn 'Em Down' (Riot City, 1982) 'Jailhouse Rock' (Clay, 1983) 'Banner Of Hope' (Clay, 1983) 'The Prisoner' (Clay, 1984) 12"s: 'The Prisoner' (Clay, 1984) LPs: 'When The Punks Go Marching In' (Riot City, 1982) 'Black Leather Girl' (Clay, 1984) 'Nothing to prove' (SOS RECORDS, 2004) 'Maybe Tomorrow 2' (Download only single, 2006) 'SKUM' 2009. ...show more
