Jason and the Scorchers: Fervor

Adam Sweeting, Melody Maker, 28 July 1984

WITH MUCH contemporary sound becoming more than a tad anaemic (they know who they are), we must turn our eyes to the West for a shot of that righteous stuff. Jason Ringenberg and his peerless Scorchers hail from Tennessee and, alongside playing the kind of live shows which can flay buckskin into shreds, they have made this mini LP which makes you feel good to be alive.
