The Scutches Bio:

THE SCUTCHES were formed by Vincent Hoffer (aka) Vincenzo in 2002, after playing drums in other bands. He got sick of band drama so he started his own band. Influenced by such Legends as Richie Valens, Buddy Holly, The Beatles, The Beach Boys and The Ramones. Vin recorded the first Scutches EP in 2001. He didn’t have a full band at the time nor did he even plan on touring, so Vinny played every instrument and sang. Then the first full-length in 2005, titled "Cars Goes Fast". After several line-up changes,he accepted the fact that if he wanted to tour line-up changes were inevitable. He kept the Scutches going with various friends and musicians. In 2006 Rich joined the band as drummer and backing vocalist. Rich most notably played in a band called Smelt that got some local radio airplay. Vin recorded and toured with The Guts from 2007-2008. In 2008 Vin played bass and recorded with The Sheckies at The Electric Cave (a studio co-owned by Joe King of The Queers). Followed by touring until 2010. The Scutches continued to release a full record almost every year after 2009. The Scutches are comprised of Vincent Hoffer and Rich da Silva with multiple friends switching on and off bass. We're celebrating ten years of the band and are very excited for the upcoming release. We had a lot of fun writing and recording it and hope that people will be able to hear that.
