SCARECROW: Revenge: 7”EP/CD

I’m not sure if my perception of the punk scene in Raleigh, N.C. is correct but it does seem to have a plethora of bands which excel at the d-beat style of punk. Scarecrow needs to be added to the list of bands coming from that city and which follow that style, and must also be recognized as one which does so extremely proficiently. This EP provides eight raging tracks that speed past in the blink of an eye, and they offer a bleak, nihilistic view of the world, as one might expect from the genre. This is one of the best records I’ve heard from such a band for some time. –Rich Cocksedge (Bunker Punks, [email protected], [email protected])
