There seems to be no stopping Evil Scarecrow these days. CB remembers seeing them supporting Soulfly at Rock City a few years back and laughing our tits off. They were brilliant, but a bit of a novelty act. You couldn’t watch them too many times…
How wrong can you be?
Numerous appearances at the HRH shindigs, the dizzy heights of headlining CackBlabbath’s own Twitrfest and THAT performance at Bloodstock Festival last year has kind of cemented the fact that you could watch this band all day every day and never get bored. They’ve built up a loyal and passionate following over the years. The Evil Scarecrow crowd must go down as one of the most creative out there. Bringing along any prop that even loosely ties in to an Evil Scarecrow song; today there are robot limbs and inflatable crabs to make the band feel at home on their Download debut.
Yep, Download. That’s the league they are in now and it’s fully deserved. The tent is full to bursting for an early set and as per usual, they are absolutely brilliant.
It’s fantastic to see a band we’ve followed for years making success for themselves, we just hope they will still talk to us now they are big Monsters of Rock!
