The Scrams Are Dead
Well, they had a good run. The men of the self-deemed warehouse rock band started kicking out ye olde jams way back in 2009 with a wonderfully demented, organ-laden, five-song 7-inch. The following year a full-length CD (with a nifty, hand-printed onion cross section on the cover) was released, and another 7-inch (this one sadly organ-less) turned up this year. All the while, the band, armed with a super catchy name, played show after trashy, twitchy, loud garage rock show. Audiences and music writers gushed.
The Scrams will be holding rock and roll funeral services for itself this Saturday. Alas, guitarist Juan Carlos Rodriguez is being called away to Manhattan for a reporting job. This last hurrah is coupled with a disconcerting six-song remix album—“AMSCRAY: The Scrams Get Scrambled”—available to download for free via NYC net label Immigrant Breast Nest (immigrantbreastnest.com/
