Based in Bristol, Scalping are a four-piece band: Isaac Jones on drums, James Rushforth on bass guitar, Nick Berthoud on guitar and Alex Hill on electronics. Ever since the formation of the band, they’ve been trying to answer the question that guides their work: “How can a band bridge the gap between live guitar music and live electronic music?”
