Scubaroots is the remedy. Desperately hanging on to the last days of summer... (yes it was a while ago) avoiding at all costs getting real jobs, under the guise that they're still students (which they aren't....apart from Len who is learning to make guitars) and blissfully ignoring the brutality of reality. The Scubaroots repertoire is defiantly more high grade than highbrow. With tales of debauched wreckage, saucy doctors, dodgy bankers, mary jane and dub star hotels... they play what they feel and feel what they play with their collective tongue firmly in cheek. Escape from planet earth, England, Shepherds Bush...Shepton Mallet........stop by @ Babylon Pharmacy....out soon!
After a long summer of ripping up the festival circuit with their live 10 piece show, Scubaroots have headed down to Shepherds Bush to record their much anticipated new album 'Babylon Pharmacy' (Out 2010). Currently working on their new record with Morgan Nicholls (former bass player of The Streets, Gorillaz, Lily Allen, The Senseless Things) they are looking forward to returning to the stage for more festival action in the UK and abroad.
"One of Bristol's hottest club secrets, and championed by the likes of Mr. Scruff, The Scratch Perverts and DJ Derek, are the prodigious party boys and girls, Scubaroots."
"At its core are Richard De Rosa and Richard Cox who write and produce the tracks. Live the group consists of a ten piece band that on occasion swells to include gospel choirs, record geek DJs, Latin percussion outfits and a ton of other party-kinds up for a party. Expect high energy, disciplined and soulful music that nods to the best kinds breakbeat, funk, reggae and roots influences. The band forged on the South West college circuit and now has an ardent following in Bristol, and wherever they have gigged around the country. Taste beyond their years this is killer stuff. Crowds forming. Let the word spread."
