I Was A Cub Scout

Pink Squares

I Was A Cub Scout
The world of emotronica has never been especially vocal about its love of wafer biscuits, but by Christ are I Was A Cub Scout hell-bent on putting that straight. Worried that not enough people heard their paean to pink wafers when it was first released in 2006, the band decamped to their studio with Phil Collins’ producer and retooled ‘Pink Squares’ ready for another go. Fortunately, since the first effort wasn’t that bad, the track’s escaped with nothing more than a little added thump. Plus Todd Marriott seems to have gone through puberty since the first version. And about time too.
