"Girl's World - The Scratch"

The Scratch 'girls world' (pony land). is there no stopping these dudes, not content with sending our hi-fi into states of unparalleled bliss with their previous visit to these pages with the stylus sizzling twin set 'critical mass' and 'dear maniac' - so good it was we're still bearing the scars. As though refusing to let off you hook St Albans finest now stump up to brand new spanking cuts in the shape of 'girls world' and 'sweet surprise' which we've just noticed is cut on a limited edition red wax 7 inch which we'll have to nail as our own in the coming days. Another faultless foray into record world, the superbly airy 'girl's world' sees them in mellower moods, still very much time slipped in the 70's though this time assuming a decidedly tasty countrified pub rock element to their creative canvas that unless we're very much mistaken sounds not unlike the Modern Lovers shimmying up to the Flamin Groovies to gouge out battered and punch drunk Faces riffs with Nick Lowe and Dave Edmunds coolly heading up things at the controls. Flip the disc for the decidedly more forthright and rollicking 'sweet surprise' which it has to be said comes flying out of the traps at such a blistering pace it leaves you breathless and pinned helplessly to the far wall of your listening space, a rampant bar room bruiser that craftily tweaks and tinkers with the gung ho mentality of Stiff's finest the Damned as though on this occasion finding themselves squaring up to the Dead Boys with Pete Shelley sneakily taking up the mic amid the ensuing melee, scorching stuff. - losingtoday.com

"Night Bus or Milk Train Album review"

On the surface, The Scratch could be just another indie band, but once you get past the first three or four tunes on Night Bus Or Milk Train, you realise that something a little bit special is going on here. They come across like a mildly nu-punk version of The Coral, tightly crafted guitar pop music interwoven with the odd synth or sample - not overused in the slightest. ‘Stranger’ even takes a different course and sounds very Eighties, like Midge Ure with new toys on Christmas. The guitar work is excellent, there are some damn fine riffs on this record and they seem genuinly keen to do something just a little bit different. In every verse you can hear shades of influences ranging from The Libertines to The Human League. The real gems are in the second half of the album, ‘Out Faking The Fakers’ and ‘Smell The Gas Taps’ being highlights. It’s a fine effort from the Manchester quartet, and one that sounds like things are only just beginning.

"Night Bus or Milk Train Album review"


I recently reviewed The Scratch's single, 'Numbers', and observed that The Scratch were, 'wonderfully edgy pop/rock with nu-punk attitude and wholesome retro intonations'. Based on one just track that could have proved to have been a risky thing to say. But it wasn't - rather, it turned out to be quite prophetic coz this debut album, 'Night Bus Or Milk Train', only strengthens that initial observation; that The Scratch are something very special in all those aforementioned ways!!

'Night Bus Or Milk Train' is stunning! Rammed with great songs, full of energetic variety and executed with superb attention to detail - faultless, flawless, breathtaking and absorbing! Need I say more? 'Night Bus Or Milk Train' is remarkably refined and unbelievably .

The Scratch just give off a massively good vibe and entertain the listener seemingly without any real effort. It all sounds so easy and so natural. Hey, these guys have what it takes and judging by 'Night Bus Or Milk Train' they're ready to take on all-comers - The Scratch are up for it - The Scratch can do it!!

I love everything The Scratch are doing - hey, that's weird, I'm not really into 'commercial' music. But, The Scratch are just so spirited, so convincing, so bloody unnervingly infectious and unputdownable. This is a classy album that'll actually suit many tastes and perhaps that's where The Scratch do actually make a difference; 'Night Bus Or Milk Train' straddles genre, ignores age barriers and sticks two fingers up at commercial banality! - www.toxicpete.co.uk

"Night Bus Or Milk Train review"

The ghosts of many punk/rock bands hover around this record; often there are strains of The Ramones, occasionally an injection of glam pompishness from vocals that are reminiscent of Marc Bolan and a touch of Iggy and The Stooges weaves its way through many of the heavier tunes. It’s all pretty old school in essence, but wrapped around all the retro nods is a much more contemporary veil that helps to pull a record that may have sounded old fashioned very firmly into the present day.

“Night Bus or Milk Train� is quite a difficult album to pin down; it’s often quirky and imaginative with some interesting touches. The D.I.Y ethic is very apparent, it comes through in the lo-fi production and really suits the kinetic style of the record. Strangely, indie darlings the Moldy Peaches spring to mind on some tracks and even weirder is the 60s tinged pop feel that brings to mind chart bothering ‘kids’ McFly.

There are some good tracks like ‘Dial Xero’ which has 60s kitsch pop appeal blended with the indie sweetness of the Moldy Peaches and ‘Out Faking the Fakers’ which starts with a Hell Is For Heroes style riff then dives full on into glam punk territory. The good moments on this album really stand out. There is certainly bags of potential here, and the decent tunes are really good, showing you just what this band are capable of. - www.roomthirteen.com

"X-Ray Eyes/Brainstorm single review"

by England's The Scratch is one of the most pocket-picking white guy post-punk dub dance whatsis slabs since The Pop Group's "She Is Beyond Good And Evil". And, yeah, it lacks some of that record's massiveness. but the sputzy way these clowns pile grooves together on "X-Ray Eyes", then tangle them with Beefhearty guitar slides, and strange post-glam vocals, is pretty goddamn snappy. - The Wire Magazine

"DIY Album review"

We’ve been following the progress of The Scratch with interest. Their (too) scant output so far has amounted to one 7� single and one 10� single, two records that introduced their widescreen vision, piqued our interest and then left us hungry for more. The four songs that appeared on the singles are here with an extra boot up their arses and a studio polish and sound even better than before.

‘I Relax To Spiral Scratch’ opens up the album and remains a gloriously dumb 3 minute kamikaze dive bomb of a tune. Like the Ramones and the Damned working through the Buzzcocks (well it would be with a title like that) song book on speed complete with outer space sound effects for good measure. It should be all too much but against the odds it works. Joint A side on the 7� single was ‘Trigger Finger’ and it appears here again, a spiky, shouty, trashy piece of work with howling guitars and a great spoken run through of some of Londons lowlights.

So now you’re probably ready to write them off as yet another London band with 3 chords and a whole lot of attitude. Well they’re a little more interesting than that (and they’re from Hertfordshire anyway). As their next release proved, another double A side, this time they moved into more dubby areas. ‘X-Ray Eyes' in particular goes for a serious rumble around the bass bins whilst up top a steel guitar adds a funky vibe to proceedings. In essence it resides in the same musical landscape as Kasabian's ‘Processed Beats’ (a good thing) and demands to be cranked up loud. Meanwhile ‘Brainstorm’ takes a more introspective approach utilising a more rumbling bass sound and moody Massive Attackesque electronics. Eventually a sheet of guitar cuts through the narcotic haze to take us to a disorientating finale.

Theoretically bands should not be this unrestricted. It is soon apparent that these boys have record collections you could get lost in and that they also know their way round a studio. The dance element shouldn’t be a surprise, two of their members have had minor success making dance records in the past and their electronic beat building experience is all over this record. Perhaps the culmination of all these influences and high point of the record to these ears is ‘Logical Mind’, a funky, druggy groove that moves into Stone Roses territory with a sublime jangly guitar riff. It’s loping beat and laid back guitar make for a hazy classic.

Elsewhere ‘Texture to the Flava’ moves into a more straight forward rock area and they prove once again that they’re more than comfortable in switching styles. ‘Alcohol's A Depressant’ apart from having a title that you really don’t want to hear, continues the journey into more straight forward pleasures indulging itself in a sub AC/DC riff. Whilst you wouldn’t be surprised to hear ‘Supermodel’ on the next Supergrass album (once again, no bad thing).

The Scratch, as the title of the record suggests, got tired of waiting for the music industry to give them a chance and like many artists we talk about on W&H have decided to make their own way. The fact that they’ve achieved such a diverse yet coherent set of songs and that it sounds so damn professional is to be applauded. - D.I.Y album review on whisperinandhollerin.co.uk


"I relax to Spiral Scratch single review"

Another record that’s nearly be worn out through constant play is this smarting debut from The Scratch for whom everyday would be locked into 1977 is they had their own way. A homage to the Buzzcocks stupendous debut ‘Spiral Scratch’ , all gritty retro fun, rumbling bass lines and set to stun three chord shocks, impossible to stay still to for any given period, a razor sharp gem of a release. Flip the disc for the stripped down holler of the frenzied mutant garage punk / disco groove of ‘Trigger finger’ which recalls the New York Dolls / Black Halos sleaze and lays it all to dust with a serious boot shaking foundation, call it a scuzzier bad assed half cousin to Radio 4 / Lomax, essential in case you needed telling. - losingtoday.com

"Live at Night and Day, by John Robb, of Goldblade and author of of 'The Stone Roses & the resurrection of British pop'"

The St Albans four piece dig deep into the Buzzcocks/ T.Rex canyon of furious guitar pop. It's a rich seam and one that's paying them dividends. They have the same kind of historic vocals, witty lyrics and tearaway guitars that made their two prime influences two of the best pop bands this country has ever produced. This sliver of guitar gold dominated their sound and their set is stuffed full of great tunes. It can only be a matter of time before someone takes some notice of this hard working band. - John Robb - Goldblade


"Critical Mass Single Review"

The Scratch "Critical Mass" (Ponyland). Last appearing in these very pages via their awesome 10 inch "X-Ray Eyes" (Missive 35) the follow up of course to their storming Buzzcock-ian debut "I relax to spiral scratch" (missive 26 in case you're taking notes) though we are slightly miffed and grumbling aplenty at missing out on their full length "night bus or milk train" and the "numbers" single that they managed to squeeze out between then and now - alas though its not for us to shout the odds - the barstids.

That said disagreeable muttering aside what better way to re-acquaint ourselves with St Albans finest foursome than with two spanking slabs of the - to be filed under the dogs bollocks - part of the listening section Still excavating the refined retro sounds of the 70's "Critical Mass" is a searing slice of bad boogie all at once excitable, energetic and effervescent, laced with more hooks than a butchers walk in freezer this blistering babe swaggers, swoons and will no doubt shag your girlfriend when you back is turned such is its smouldering high impact uber coolness. Dashed with a pristine power driven pop chassis replete with licks lifted from the arse pocket of Ronson (that'll be Mick as opposed to Mark) "Critical Mass" is so blatantly out of step with current trads and trends that it's disturbingly refreshing like some coming together fusion of New York’s Ambulance LTD and the Crimea, the Scratch are
literally in a different time zone and pissing through the fence over the oncoming competition. Hell we haven't even mentioned the oh so "Suffragette City" era Bowie references. A killer thing.

Flip cut ""dear maniac" is even better, no fat or fillers here these kids are
literally shitting transistor trouncing tunes by the hundredweight. Featuring crookedly skewif codas doused in odd art pop / new wave nuances sourced from vintage moments found on late 70's era TOTP re-runs - think Devoto meets Pirroni but with the impish mindset of Stewart Copeland's Klark Klent alter ego all converging to eke out a disorienting but devilishly dishy slice of awkward sonic sea sickness that possesses about its wares subtle Bolan-esque shimmies before erupting into a frenzied but mightily admirable anxiety riddled attrition lashed finale. Absolutely feckin’ essential.

Bio

We decided to release our first single as 7inch vinyl only, on our own imprint - I Relax to Spiral Scratch a nod to one of our big influences, The Buzzcocks was released in 2003 and gained some good reviews and was stocked by Rough Trade in London. For the second single we released the more loop and beats infused X-Ray Eyes as a 10inch vinyl, once again on Ponyland Records. 2004 album DIY featured both tracks.

Following a couple of years of solid gigging, taking in such London venues as Camden Barfly, The Water Rats (where they had a month residency), The Dublin Castle, The Metro, Turnmills, Rhythm Factory, The Hope and Anchor, Borderline and Bullet Bar. The Scratch released second album Night Bus or Milk Train in 2006, described at the time, as A love lorn tale of jealousy, confusion, chocolate lemonade and needledicks! - all delivered in a pop-punk package akin to The Buzzcocks mutated with T.Rex and a pinch of Kinksesque flourish.

Things moved up a gear in 2007 for us, as thanks to entry by DJ Clint Boon into an XFM competition in Manchester, the band won the chance of opening the Versus Cancer show at the sell out 22,000 capacity M.E.N. arena. Over 12 weeks the band we were pitted against acts from all over the country - these were voted on by XFM listeners, with the 12 finalists being judged by an illustrious industry panel including, Mike Pickering (Legendary Hacienda DJ and now Director of A&R at Sony BMG), Alex Jones Donnelly (A&R Director of EMI publishing), Simon Moran (Boss of SJM, the UKs biggest live music promoter) and Debs Wild (The Lady who discovered Coldplay). Opening for the likes of Noel Gallagher Paul Weller The Charlatans, Ian Brown, Echo & The Bunnymen, this really raised our profile and ultimately led to a live session on Clint Boons Exposure show and three further appearances on his Drive Thru and evening session programmes. The year ended with the release of single Numbers (the track that the band opened Versus Cancer with) and an appearance on Manchester’s channel M breakfast TV show, that featured a glowing endorsement in a taped interview from Clint.

Our live shows have been described as enigmatic, energy fuelled, comedic, rockin roll showtimes, featuring beer soaked stages, wounded guitars, brothel creepers and many a spontaneous act!
2008 (The year of the rat… please catch our In the City blog!) saw the release of two singles Critical Mass CD and download and Girls World CD and download and on red/pink vinyl which appeared on numerous Internet and Student radio playlists, backed by live acoustic sessions. The supporting videos were shown on heavy rotation on Sky Channels, Propeller TV and Go Ape. (You can still see them on www.youtube.com/ponylandrecords). A short promo tour saw us support The Holloways and appear on BBC 3 Counties Radios On Tour feature, we also made a first appearance at the Endorse IT in Dorset festival, in August in the company of Alabama 3, Buzzcocks and Goldblade. We also secured our second regional XFM response session with Colin Frances (at the sadly now defunct XFM Wales) in Cardiff. The year finished on a huge high with a spot at the prestigious In the City music festival in Manchester.

2009 is already looking exciting with the release of a new single Against the Grain on 26th January on our own label. Latest news is that we have secured a live session at BBC 3 Counities radio for March 6th. Gig wise next year we are pleased to announce a residency at our local venue The Horn. We will be playing there at bi-monthly intervals from March 27th, please check our websites for the dates. www.thescratch.co.uk and www.myspace.com/thescratch
