AK79 bands Proud Scum and The Terrorways are reuniting!

AK79 album cover - Proud Scum, The Terrorways, The Scavengers

I just visited cheeseontoast.co.nz and saw that there are two shows at the Monte Christo Room late November where Proud Scum, The Spelling Mistakes, The X-Freatures, The Terrorways and the Scavengers will be playing! I’m so excited!

When I was 17 and first moved to Auckland I discovered the CD re-release of AK79 and it quickly became my favourite album.  I was studying audio engineering at the time and in my youthful excitement kept talking about this album and how much I loved Proud Scum, The Terrorways and The Scavengers. It turned out that Dean, one of the guitarists from The Terrorways was in my class and I believe it is him on the cover of the CD; and Victor Grbic who was one of my tutors was the audio engineer on some of the tracks!  My band at the time used to coverSuicide by Proud Scum, I might even have a recording of it somewhere…

Most of these bands haven’t played since the very early 80′s and Cheese On Toast say it’s likely they’ll never play again – The first show has already sold out and tickets for the second show go on sale tomorrow. It’s limited to 350 tickets, so I’ll be at Real Groovy tomorrow morning!
