I can commend anyone who tries to go back and resurrect music from a critically maligned genre, much like George Costanza picking the eclair out of the garbage and eating it. The Costanza in this case is Trophy Wives and the eclair is “grunge.” Just reading that I bet you cringed, right? But people like to play some revisionist history and forget that before Silverchair and their ilk tried robbing Kurt Cobain’s freshly rotting corpse for all it was worth, there were honest bands championing the “Seattle sound.” The Seattle sound is in quotations there because there was actually a wide range of style in what came to be known as a particular sound. With a healthy pedigree from playing in many of Louisville's most notable punk/hardcore bands like Elliott, Coliseum and Breather Resist, you’d expect more of a studied exploration of musical history than what ends up encompassing Old Scratch.
