Album Info

Back in the late '90s when I first encountered gnarly, Orange County pop-punks Scrimmage Heroes, I wasn't aware that Mark Arnold of Big Drill Car had any involvement with them, but from from the research I gleaned over the weekend, that's exactly the case.  Being the decades-long mondo BDC acolyte that I am, a slap to the forehead was in order, but I wasn't too hard on myself, because even though there's been little activity from the Scrimmage camp in almost ten years I can still partake in their records, and this one is particularly riveting.  What you have in store here are three ace slabs of melodious, riff-addled power punk informed by All and the aforementioned BDC, but with the more nuanced tact and pop acumen of Superdrag.  Scrimmage Heroes have a pair of albums under their belt, 1999's Nothing Comes Clean, and the more indiosyncrantic 2002 follow-up, The Mighty Insect.  Incidentally the band's name appears in silver Mylar on the front sleeve of this record, but sadly, it failed to translate via my flatbed scanner.
