AL SCORCH AND THE COLD DEAD HANDS: AL Self-titled: 7″

My favorite part of reviewing 7”s is when you can’t tell if you’re playing something at the wrong speed. This one is at 33, and I thought for sure I had it on 45. Nope, Al Scorch just plays that banjo that fucking fast. Lightning-speed, sloppy folk punk songs about ninjas and liquor made of corn. At least, I think so. The lyrics insert was copied so barely as to be illegible, but I still loved all four tracks.
