'68 Summertime Blues (4-track 10", £17.95)label: cooking vinyl
Josh Scogin thrives on chaos. If you have followed his prior bands, Norma Jean and The Chariot, you already know this. When ’68 became Scogin’s new mode of expression, one would think the chaos would die down. He might be too busy onstage to think about jumping around. The subversive element of ’68 became something more subtle… the attitude. There is clever repartee between Scogin and the audience, wild interplay between Scogin and his ’68 bandmate, Michael McClellan and music that will stun audiences of alt/indie rock and hard rock varieties. There are some wild song titles on TWO PARTS VIPER, which is certainly different than their untitled songs from the previous album. “The Workers Are Few” and “This Life Is Old, New, Borrowed And Blue”, “Death Is A Lottery” and “Without Any Words (Only Crying and Laughter)” are among them. The headspace that TWO PARTS VIPER puts the listener in, is one of constant discovery. Highs and lows, subtleties and blatant elements, things that require attention. This is just what Scogin was looking to achieve. Every step of this journey was designed to keep you on your toes, provoke thought and entertain. If you get it, you are ’68 too. Tracklisting 1. Summertime Blues 2. One Thing, However I Have Found to Be True 3. That's The Plan Anyway, Now Figure Out How To Follow Through 4. Summertime Blues (Director’s Cut).
