The Scare

Aussie punk upstarts

200 years ago, Great Britain packed its undesirables off to a colony on the other side of the world. This colony has since returned the favour by exporting the musical genius of Men At Work, Stefan Dennis and Delta Goodrem. Thankfully, Aussie punk upstarts The Scare do not fall into the same bracket as they’re actually rather good. So why leave the sun-kissed beaches of Brisbane behind for the rain-soaked streets of Birmingham? “If we wanted to be a band with long term goals we definitely had to come over to the UK,” says drummer Sam Pearton matter-of-factly. “We’re pretty ambitious people and we weren’t happy to do what every other Australian band has ever done – we didn’t want to tour just in our own country, have a day job and be safe within our own world.”
