Track Of The Day: Table Scraps – ‘Doom Generation’

Having received acclaim from the likes of Idles and BBC 6Music, and having wowed crowds at SXSW last year, Birmingham trio Table Scraps are back with a savage new single, ahead of their upcoming album, set for release next year.

Despite being recorded before the extremities of Covid hit, ‘Doom Generation’s  post-apocalyptic theme couldn’t be more resonant than right now. Immediately hitting the ears with a disconcerting sound of an air-raid siren, the track then builds with immense thrashing riffs and a searing sense of urgency. As the seething, angst-driven power of the vocals rages, ‘Doom Generation’ provides a fierce, riotous commentary on the state of society at the moment. Propelled by an impressive, ferocious musical force, it’s a perfectly poignant, raging catharsis for these seemingly doomed times.

‘Doom Generation’ is accompanied by a homemade animated video, depicting the band standing still, drinking beer, whilst the world collapses around them. A pretty spot-on summation of this year. The video also features cute cameos from other bands on the Birmingham garage rock circuit: Cherry Pickles, The Cosmics and Black Mekon.
