Storyline

'Play like the music doesn't matter.' The unbelievable true story of the band that gained massive east coast popularity in the late 1980s despite having a complete lack of musical talent and ambition. A powerful PR machine built their fame, and soon their primary objective was to invent new and creative ways to get kicked off stage without actually playing. Narrated by 'Alice Cooper', Skum ROCKS!, is a genre-bending film described by some as a true-life 'This is Spinal Tap', and by others as an independent 'Rock of Ages'. 'Skum Rocks!' chronicles the rise, fall, and return of this infamous band, giving new life to the tale of 'The Emperor's New Clothes'. Written by Anonymous

Skums Redemption
17 February 2016 | by tannergibasSee all my reviews

Part documentary, part madness. Coming out of left field is a film about a band (kind of) that you may or may have not heard of and their unusual path to their first album.

The first act of the film left me really intrigued as I wasn't sure what I was watching. It walks a fine line of being a reality TV show and a "mockumentary" but once the history of the band is explained it settles into a traditional narrative, showcasing the force that was SKUM! The film then takes a shift into present day showing the bands last attempt at proving that their reputation is not all non-sense, but something that does resemble a rock band.
