Throwback: “Blizzards, Buzzards, Bastards” by Scissorfight!
20 years ago Portsmouth New Hampshire Crust Punk leaning Stoner Metal quartet Scissorfight were getting themselves into a bloody mess at both Fort Apache and New Alliance Studios with Andrew Schneider and Craig Ross recording “Mantrapping for Sport and Profit“. An absolutely killer release, took them from national to international having made their name in the US after appearing on MTV and at the River Rave Festival beside Cypress Hill and Stone Temple Pilots. That was the peak of their initial 11 year from 1995 to 2006 run with singles like “New Hampshire’s All Right If You Like Fighting” and “Blizzards, Buzzards, Bastards” landing on Magazine cover compilations and the band gaining a reputation as having a sound heavier than Clutch but with that same intelligent and often humourous lyrical flow. After a near decade long hiatus, the band returned in 2016 with new vocalist Doug Aubin and drummer Rick Orcut as well as a new EP “Chaos County” and they’ve been on the road ever since.
