STRAWMEN: Jack Rabbit: 7″

Although tinny, I hear something decent brewing beneath the screamy-shouty vocals. Fast and simple country twang with a sloppy-punk bent that could stand some beefing up and tightening up. The unbridled vocals need some containment but all in all a serious effort that just needs time to solidify into a cohesive group. “Jack Rabbit,” “Red Barn” and a cover of the Compulsive Gamblers’ “Sour & Vicious Man.”
