OL SCRATCH / ONETIMERS: Split: 7” EP

Do Ya Hear We usually delivers the goods, so I had high expectations for some quality region rock. Unfortunately, this one didn’t quite cut it. The Onetimers sound like they have heart and are doing just what they wanna do, but their straightforward, no nonsense, gruff-vocaled punk is too forgettable for me. I find Ol Scratch much more palatable. They offer four semi-aggressive punk tracks, kinda reminiscent of Butt Trumpet or Meatmen circa the ‘90s. Surprised to hear anything like this nowadays, and I’m also surprised to be kinda warm to it these days.
