I Was a Cub Scout were a two-piece synthpop/indie rock band from Long Bennington and Collingham, England, consisting of William Bowerman and Todd Marriott. They were formed in 2006, and split on 5 June 2008. The bands discography is available here https://iwasacubscout.bandcamp.com/

New bands[edit]

Since the split, both former members have created new bands. Todd Marriott has formed YGT, an electronic duo with Tom Mclean.[2][3][4]

Immediately after IWACS split, Bowerman formed the instrumental band Brontide, which allowed him to showcase his considerable post-rock drumming skills. Bowerman also plays live and also session drums for La Roux and is tour drummer for Summer Camp and Paul Mullen (of yourcodenameis:milo) also announced on his Twitter that he had been recording with Will and Gordon Moakes of Bloc Party.[5]
