TAMPA BAY MOSH TEAM PRESENTS: FRACTURED FAIRYTALES, DIDGES CHRIST SUPERDRUM, TEN CENT TOYS, INTO THE GRAVE, ORION CONSPIRACY
Many years ago in a desolate Lincolnshire town a band of dubiously termed musicians of Nordic heraldry with a fondness for sticky back plastic decided to go their separate ways, but as a phoenix rises from the ashes a new and perhaps even more glorious band emerged from the dying embers of Thor’s Children (widely regarded as the greatest Blue Peter Metal band of all time) and thus Evil Scarecrow triumphantly exploded in to existence. In the following years the band slowly relocated to Nottingham evolving through several line up changes to become the monstrous and stunning apparition that you see today. The current incarnation of the band is version 5.0 featuring Dr. Rabid Hell, Brother Dimitri Pain, Kraven Morrdeth, Princess Luxury and Ringmaster Monty Blitzfist. Previous band members may have been left behind but they’re not forgotten, Hymen the Unbreakable, Nemesis, Frenzy G. Spinesnap and Papa Bongo all helped to create the unique sound and style of Evil Scarecrow. The band have two full albums “Crowcifiction” and “Sixty Six Minutes Past Six” with the “Hell Dog” EP being released between the two. Two official videos have been released, the ever popular “Robototron” and fan favourite “Blacken the Everything”. 2012 saw them starting work on the as yet untitled third album which will be the first recorded with the current line up. As ever the album will include influences from across the metal genre melded together with the inimitable Evil Scarecrow humour and just a smattering of some rather more imitable dance moves. It is in the live arena that the band have really proved their worth, they have gigged relentlessly around the UK for a number of years captivating and sometimes rather surprising audiences from venues as small as the local pub, as legendary as Nottingham Rock City and as mammoth as the main stage at Bloodstock Festival. Everywhere they play they win new fans, their passion and enthusiasm ensures they always connect with their audience who in turn spread the word far and wide. The support of fans saw Evil Scarecrow win the Bloodstock Unsigned Competition in 2008 and they were featured in Terrorizer’s best unsigned band readers’ poll at the end of the same year. Since then the band have leaped from strength to strength expanding their following and catching the eye of the critics. In 2011 they made a triumphant return to Bloodstock playing a set to a packed to bursting second stage tent and a quite astounding number of robot dancers. Demand for the live show has never been stronger and the band show no signs of slowing down their gigging schedule. 2012 has already seen them play at Hammerfest Festival, the Hard Rock Hell Ibiza Road Trip and as part of the pre-party for the prestigious Metal Hammer Golden Gods Awards. The band will continue to gig around the UK for the rest of the year. Are you ready for the Evil Scarecrow live onslaught? When they’re invading a stage near you, it's not to be missed! "If you havent seen Evil Scarecrow yet, then it feels unfair to ruin the surprise. An affable blend of Pythonesque absurdity, artfully drawn from an evident love of metal, they have the crowd in the palm of their collective claw from Sixty-Six minutes past Six." Metal Hammer “Praise be, then, for Evil Scarecrow…Novelty bands don't last long on stage, everyone's tired of the joke by the third song in. Evil Scarecrow break the mould by being damned competent musicians as well as piss funny.” The Rock City Review “... those who camped surely felt the repercussions, as did the festival itself as tooled-up monster magnets Evil Scarecrow found themselves taking to the stage a little later than scheduled. That didn’t stop the enthusiastic crowd giving their melody-laced extreme metal their full attention, and their performance was surprisingly engaging.” Powerplay Magazine “This quintet command the big stage surprisingly well, suppressing all the apprehensions I had ... Despite my usual hangover, I walked away from their set with an amused grin.” Metal Team UK “It’s well thought-out and delivered metal ... and frighteningly hilarious crowd interaction – creating a chaotic mix that sees Evil Scarecrow win many hearts and become perfect main stage openers.” Planet Loud “They perform their soul ripping metal tracks with such passion it’s hard not to stand up and take notice. That and their set is also one of the most wildly aggressive and downright entertaining sets of the entire festival so far.” AltSounds This is an early show from 7-10pm. The Waterfront's regular Club Night is from 10pm - over 18s only. Ticket holders (over 18) are welcome to stay on FOR FREE (ID required).

“South Wales Heavy Metal Community Launch, The Garage, Uplands, Swansea 10/06/11 The question is where do we go from here? That’s answered by the formidable Ten Cent Toy. They launch into their set with rumbling bass lines, breakneck drumming and lung bursting vocals. They play with an understanding and tightness that you would expect from a band with such a history, having played Hammerfest and toured near and far in the last few months alone. The only question I’ve got about them is how come they remained unsigned? Although their frontman has great set pipes it’s the bassist that steals the show with his high energy performance, his bass tricks, and the way he plays up to the crowd. They’re fantastic at what they do, and it won’t be long before somebody who knows what they’re doing snaps them up.”
