Man Scouts of America
Crash Course (RAFR Records)

By: Jeb Branin

From the "Destroyer" spoof album art to the three chord guitar rock you get the distinct feeling that the MAN SCOUTS may have been, oh... slightly, influenced by KISS. I wonder if they blow fire live? One can hope, eh? MAN SCOUTS play a revved up variation of the neo rawk n' roll being championed by the likes of THE SUPERSUCKERS and BACKYARD BABIES but instead of approaching their pomp from a primarily punk background they seem to take a route stemming from classic guitar based hard rock. You know the drill. Plug it in, turn it up and kick it out! Sweat and blood are as important and distortion and volume. What could be better than that? Plus you got to hand it to the MAN SCOUTS for appropriately naming this ep. This is indeed a "Crash Course" in their music. Six tunes that hit hard, fast and furious. Again I ask what could be better than that?
