Ever found yourself in a kitchen sink drama all about the contents of your kitchen sink? This is the soundtrack to it.

Here’s the video.

Recorded and mixed at 2Fly Studios, Sheffield by Lord Alan Smyth.

Gig cancellations

It is with great regret that The Scaramanga Six will not be appearing at the gigs on the weekend of the 31st July/1st August. We have taken the decision to pull out much to our immense disappointment.
Although lockdown restrictions have been lifted and many people want to get back to the joy of full scale live gigs, for personal and family reasons we have had to take a more cautious approach as the pandemic is not yet at the stage that we had hoped it would be. We can only apologise for leaving it so close to the shows for our withdrawal and feel really guilty for letting down anyone who has planned to come to each gig especially to see us.
The events are still on, with great line-ups and we will be looking to reschedule for later on this year as we hopefully move away from the throes of the pandemic.
Much love, The Scaramanga Six x x x

New single – Horse With No Face

We are about to release the first of a slew of new singles from our forthcoming album Worthless Music. The first track is ‘Horse With No Face’ which will be out on July 30th 2021. You can pre-order the digital release and have a listen to it here:

https://thescaramangasix.bandcamp.com/album/horse-with-no-face

What’s it about? Nothing. You find yourself sat atop a beast with no brakes and no means of control. Aimless, faceless and unable to stop, you bound on relentlessly.

This track was recorded and mixed at 2Fly Studios, Sheffield by Lord Alan Smyth, our regular partner in musical crime. An ace video is to come too shortly…

2021 so far…so good

We are well into our twenty-sixth year of existence and still here. Our new album ‘Worthless Music’ is finished and awaits a release a little later this year. In the mean time, we are trapped in a circle…

Paul’s new solo album – Cruel Designs

2020 has been a strange year for everyone. But we have been busy beavering away while no-one has been looking. During this year we have worked on not one but two new albums. Still very much in the recording stage will be The Scaramanga Six’s tenth studio album…more to come on that in the new year.

But the first of these efforts is out very shortly. Paul has completed his second long player in as many years and will be unleashing it in December 2020. The album is called ‘Cruel Designs’ and follows on from the dark cinematic dance created for 2019’s ‘The Dissolving Man’ record.

Keep you eyes peeled for a new video and the release of the record on the 4th December 2020. It would also be a good idea to head to https://paulmorricone.bandcamp.com/follow_me to follow Paul on BandCamp for news of the new release as it happens.

Happy New Year. We are 25. It’s all FREE.

Happy New Year. In 2020 we become 25 years old. To celebrate this we have just made our entire back catalogue available for FREE on Bandcamp. Everything we have ever released. Right here: https://thescaramangasix.bandcamp.com/

Why have we done this? Each release has been set to ‘name your price’ meaning you can pay what you like for the physical download. This could be free if you like. Fill your boots. The fact is that it’s all pretty much free already on Spotify. But if a small handful of people actually buy a download as a result of this it will equate to more than we have ever earned from streaming sites. You can still buy the physical releases from all the usual places too.

The best way to support an independent band or label is to go and see them live, bring a friend and take a chance on a record or a bit of merch. Or buy a record in a shop or on their site.

Then if you really love what you hear, share what you like with as many people as possible. Think of the time your mate played you a tape of the band that you’ve never been able to live without since.

We will begin album number 10 and will be gigging sporadically throughout the year with a tour looking likely in October/November. We can’t stop and we won’t stop. Thank you all for rocking with us and here’s to the next 25 years…

November 2018 Gigs

Hello you,

Well it’s been a while since our last little chinwag, so a here’s a nice firm, but unsettlingly lengthy handshake to those of you left that care from your long lost pals THE SCARAMANGA SIX.

We come bearing news of a gaggle of rock concerts coming up in the next few months for no specific reason other than we can. I suppose we’re still promoting the latest behemoth of an album, ‘Chronica’, which you can expect to hear an unhealthy selection of tunes from at these shows, as well as a smattering of the classix (with an ‘x’) just for you, the kidz (with a ‘z’).
