AVAILABLE AGAIN!!! SCARCITY OF TANKS frontman MATTHEW WASCOVICH is surrounded by veteran musicians who are also painters, writers, and heavy thinkers—drummer SCOTT PICKERING (SPIKE IN VAIN, MY DAD IS DEAD), guitarist THEODORE WIGGS NULLS FLYN THE YOUNGER, and bassist SEBASTIAN WAGNER. Feeling like both a revival and a step forward, they mix classic punk with art and improv edges, in particular the authoritative heft of Saccharine Trust and Slovenly, the raucous blurt of Cleveland forefathers Electric Eels and Easter Monkeys, and the grit and pulse of Flipper and Suicide. Cover art by TIM KERR (Big Boys, Total Sound Group Direct Action Committee). Insound calls it "intelligent, impressionistic free-rock ... an earful of splenetic discordance," while Pink Eye goes one further and calls it "a minor-masterpiece. Churning bass lines ... improvisational jazz motifs, spoken word, jagged Stoogesque guitars ... kind of like some art-punk-rocking-jazz-poet jam gone crazy for a night on mushrooms.... Most of the songs are pretty simple, riding a key through to the end –- falling in and out of chaos, the tempos change but the groove remains present."
