Indie / Rhythmic Rock
Scud Penguin are an original 4 piece band from Kingston on Thames whose act is heavily influenced by the fabulously eclectic mix of British bands popular between 1976/1981. Those influences range from the amazing chops playing of Dr. Feelgood and The Pirates to the articulate personal and political story telling of Ian Dury and the Blockheads and New Model Army. From the crashy punk sounds of The Clash, The Undertones, and the Pistols to the compulsive ska rhythms of Police and The Specials. Scud Penguin are popular on the London Promoter Circuit and can be found at Monto Water Rats, The Fiddlers Elbow, The Enterprise, The Comedy and many more. The other side of Scud Penguin is that the band organises and promotes charity gigs on behalf of The Children’s Society’s Make Runaways Safe Campaign.
