The Background[edit]

Raymond and Scum is a comedy rock band based in Southern California. Vocalist Jeff Smith and guitarist Matthew Dunn formed the band while they were still in high school. Their songs were regularly played on the syndicated Dr. Demento Show. The duo regularly compose and sing songs about celebrities. Demi Moore, Jeff Goldblum, Jennifer Lopez and Aerosmith have all been subjects of their songs.

To date, they have two CDs, 2003's Touch It and 2005's Suck, as well as appearances on comedy music compilation CDs such as both volumes of Laughter Is A Powerful Weapon and Technobabble. Other comedy musicians have also appeared on Raymond and Scum albums, such as Worm Quartet and Sudden Death. "Weird Al" Yankovic's drummer, Jon "Bermuda" Schwartz, also played drums on two tracks of Suck.

In 2007, R&S joined the great Luke Ski, Tom Smith, and Rob Balder to form The FuMP (The Funny Music Project), a web site providing free comedy music downloads every Tuesday and Friday.
