New album..

After a five-year gap, peppered with the odd bouncy single release, it is finally time to unleash a new album, 'Friendly Bacteria'.

The album contains all new tracks, and features vocals from Mancunian genius Denis Jones, the splendid Vanessa Freeman and out & out legend Robert Owens, alongside collaborations with Matthew Halsall, Andy Kingslow, Kaidi Tatham, Sara Dowling, Tazi Modi & Phil France.

A teaser from the album, 'Render Me' feat. Denis Jones is available here:

'Render Me' is available as a single-track purchase on iTunes and NinjaShop, and is delivered free when the album is pre-ordered on either store.

Be The Music

My new Single, 'Be The Music'/'Nervous Energy', is out now on 12" & Download. Both tunes are perky, uptempo, and bottom-heavy. Have a listen on my SoundCloud page, check the Youtube video, and expect to hear the ridiculous bass shake the dancefloor at one of my forthcoming gigs.

Mr. Scruff works with WWF to help the Western Gray Whales

As you know, I am quite fond of whales. This week the Scruff touring tea shop is at my gigs in Scotland & Newcastle, raising money for the WWF, to help the western gray whales. There are only around 130 of these left, and they live off the coast of Sakhalin, a Russian island just north of Japan. Their habitat & feeding grounds are being threatened by oil companies. For more info, check http://www.wwf.org.uk/westerngray. I'm out like a trout!
