Jason and the Scorchers: Meanwhile, Back at the Raunch

Sandy Robertson, Sounds, 19 May 1984

ON MY TRAVELS through the murk of our crapulous rock underworld (good start, eh?), several unconnected geezers have name-dropped Jason and The Nashville Scorchers to me over the last few years. REM and John Hiatt, to name but two worth trusting of the mob of word-of-mouth supporters (and I flatter myself that I can separate genuine enthusiasm from hype and paid PR by a twitch of the nose at 200 yards).

Total word count of piece: 1644
