SCURGE® is the longstanding artistic partnership of Looch, and Greg McLaughlin. Looch is an 'out of control' control freak, and Greg is an uncontrollable freak. Together, they have performed and recorded under a variety of band names, to include: Velva Scurge, and The Front. Throughout their musical careers they have opened for a myriad of National and International Headliners, including (to name a few); XTC, Bow Wow Wow, Ultravox, The Psychedelic Furs, and U2. SCURGE's debut release HUMANOT (under the Whateverway Productions label), is a co-written culmination, derived from years of, performance experience, musical artistry, and observance of the human condition. SCURGE emerges from a pool of Poptronic nuances focusing heavily on pop melodies and unique concepts. Greg and Looch draw from a variety of genres from the 1960's to the future. HUMANOT, while adhering to non-classical rules and theories of musical arrangement, is a fluid and cohesive convergence of cross genre creativity. SCURGE's innate gravitation to originality and honesty in musical composition, lyrical creation, and sound design, dictates that they create while in a self-imposed state of current musical genre, trend, and fad deprivation. As a result, this debut release is a diverse playground for the human auditory system that will overwhelm you with originality, while comforting you with an - 'I can't quite put my finger on it' - familiarity. Looch is a seasoned musician and programmer, as well as a master of the latest sound design and production technologies. Greg McLaughlin, SCURGE's lead vocalist, is a self-taught musician who plays bass, guitar, and keyboards.
