We are very pleased to bring you Sea Scouts' "Word as a Weapon" 7" (zum005). The Sea Scouts were a stunning group from Tasmania in the vein of early Sonic Youth crossing moments of beauty with overwhelming bleakness and doom. Members went on to form Love of Diagrams, Baseball, Bird Blobs, Coconuts, Bogan Dust, and Ruins (Tasmania) and are legendary in the Melbourne rock universe. This is their only widely available US release and also the only 7" they ever did, pressed for their 1999 US tour, and perhaps the most "pop". Artwork by Tim Evans.
