Scram - Stand Up

As I mentioned in my Electric Love Muffin post I don’t see anyway that I could ever see a band now as many times as I went to Scram and ELM shows. It seemed like Scram was on the bill for every all ages show in the mid to late-80’s. However, they didn’t just play all ages show they seemed to play every club in the city. One of the strangest (but amazing) shows was seeing them back up Schooly D at the Chestnut Cabaret. (Which might have been the first hip hop tours with a live backing bands- I’m not sure)
The things I’ve collected below are an early in studio recording from WXPN, their first album Stand Up and then Kingsessing Trials. The first two were Scram as a three piece with a heavy Reggae influence. By Kingsessing Trials they had added horns and additional musicians (I would put their names but I don’t actually have the cd case anymore.) Trails at times reminds me of Paul Weller’s Style Council. Also I put up some flyers at the bottom of the post. So, enjoy.
