Bursting out of the Edinburgh punk scene of the late ’70s, Scars were a potent mix of youthful aggression and serious songwriting chops. Their debut single Horrorshow – a double A-side with the equally striking Adult/ery (sic) – was a typically ambitious take on Anthony Burgess’ futuristic nightmare A Clockwork Orange.
