You want rock? You want dirty, snarling, brutal rock and roll? Then I present you with “Potential New Agent for Unconventional Warfare”, the seventh offering from New Hampshire’s own Scissorfight, and in less than twenty minutes (unfortunately an EP) I can make a believer out of you, brothrs and sistrs. The days of great guitar riffs, acrobatic vocal growls, and rock that keeps you on your toes have not been forgotten, they’ve just been under the careful watch of Jarvis, Geezum H. Crow, Ironlung, and Kevin J. Strongbow, respectively. The encyclopedia of guitar hooks has been studied, broken down, and rebuilt into five songs that tear through every pretty-boy rocker on MTV. Elements of 70’s flare, Kim Thayil’s riffing, Bonham-sized drumming, and hard-as-nails growling are twisted and turned in ways that not only conjure up what it is that makes rock great, but defines Scissorfight as a unique group of musicians that are truly “in it” for the music. This is a band that is proud of its rock and roll heritage, musicians who are not afraid to roll up their sleeves and talk the talk. Armed with an approach to music that is innovative instead of imitative, Scissorfight is keeping it real for those that have forgotten the sweet taste of a power chord to the teeth.
