In 2005 a "Best Of" album was released called Yorkshire Drinking Crew. Mitso and Smell left soon afterwards, then came Nieal on drums for a bit and Jim Quinn on Bass, but now its Fi on drums, Jammie on bass, Coz on guitar and Byron on lead guitar / keys and Porno on vocals. Urban Scum have an album called A CLOCKWORK TIME. The album was initially released by Stivaletti Records and OigreekOi.com Records in Europe. After working really hard for months on the album the band played some gigs around England in 2008 including the Rebellion Festival in Blackpool where they sold out of all their merchandising, including 4 t-shirt designs cd's and badges and had an amazing crowd watching them. The album was classed as ''bouncing oi punk'' by N.M.E.
Towards the end of 2008 Urban Scum started recording their second official album (Droog Adiction) which will be out Summer 2009 and also recorded another couple of tunes to go out in Greece on the first Oi! compilation album in Greece. Mitsos (the original drummer) came back to England for a month to do some guest vocals in Greek alongside Porno for the new trax. Early 2009 the band played Punks Alive Festival in Birmingham. The band are doing a tour in Italy starting on 22nd June and they will be recording a song together with an Italian band Brutti e Ignoranti. It will be sung in Italian and English. Urban Scum are doing a mini tour in England as well and are playing alongside Peter and the Test Tube Babies in April and a few festivals throughout 2009.
