Scrawl

Vinyl Records and Rare LPs:

Scrawl - Smallmouth Smallmouth
Pop New - LP ROUGHUS 76 Rough Trade
Sealed 1990 Original. “Producer Gary Smith, Who Worked Wonders For The Blake Babies And Has Done Records With Throwing Muses And Other Neo-Pop Ensembles, Reigned In Scrawl's Discordant Excesses On Smallmouth, Drawing Out The Sturdy Melodies With Presentably Confident Vocals. Tidying Up The Sound Might Have Removed The Jagged Corners That Make Scrawl Invigorating, But The Trio (Especially Mays' Intense Guitar Strikes) Skillfully Holds Its Own, Making Songs Like The Tender "Charles," "Tell You What" And "Time To Come Clean" Both Bracing And Appealing. The Sketchy Lyrics Touch On Real-Life Encounters And Personal Problems With Engaging Near-The-Surface Intimacy; The Music Is A Bit Brasher Than That But Not By Much. While Some Of The Songs Are Clearly Punk-Derived ("Rot," "Absolute Torture"), The Band's '70s Rock Roots Get To Showing In "Charles," A Rewrite Of Kiss' "Beth," Which Leaves A Message For A Lover Waiting On A Rocker. Mays' Sweet Piano Cover Of Eurythmics' Bitterly Sarcastic "I Need You" Ends The Album On A Handsome, Smartly Feminist Note.” Ira Robbins, Trouser Press... more details
