Robots are coming. You can see them dancing with Mick Jagger, opening doors and delivering tea on countless Youtube videos. They’re really cool, clever, and profoundly eery. Dig a little deeper and you’ll find videos of the early robots, big as a horse, petrol engine running, spitting exhaust fumes and staggering across an icy car park in Boston (possibly). Someone sticks the boot in, it recovers and a leg is sharply pulled. The engine screams as legs flail. Just as things are settling down a hockey stick sweeps in and it’s game over. ‘Scum’ presents a reworking of this innocuous but charged situation. Is this fine, this relentless kicking, pushing and shoving? Probably but please bear witness.
