Rejoice, humans... Raise your voices up in praise... 'cuz Scratch Acid is doin' a reunion tour!!!
Scratch Acid was a psych-punk / noise-rock ensemble from Austin, Texas in the mid-80s known for the wacky antics of frontman David Yow + the crazed rhythms of drummer Rey Washem + bassist David Sims (+ for having handed out LSD to the crowd prior to at least one of their shows...). Yow + Sims were to later be half of the Jesus Lizard, easily one of the best bands to play American underground rock ever. And with Scratch Acid were those raucous musical seeds sown...
College pal Matt hepped me to this band in 1987 + I've been a fan ever since. Of course, they'd disbanded by then... d'oh... so here's my chance to see 'em play! And yours, too!
