We are very pleased to be welcoming long time faves, P.A.I.N, to headline a benefit for Scarecrow Corner. They played on the SoundScape Solar Stage in Scarecow Corner a couple of years ago at the Fair.
Established in 1995, The Propaganda And Information Network (as P.A.I.N is officially named) was first put together from the ashes of two seminal free festival bands: A.O.S.3 and Radical Dance Faction. Brought together to carry on the same Anarcho-style rantings, but with a much harder, Punk Rock attitude to it (less toking and more drinking!) within the first 7 days of forming P.A.I.N managed to book up a 3 week tour, literally writing the set in soundchecks. The band went from strength to strength releasing their first live demo (Prison’s no Place for Punishment – a real collector’s item these days,) within their first month of existence. Well that was years ago. Since then P.A.I.N. have released 2 studio albums, 2 cd singles and a couple of live albums, and are currently working on a new studio album and a P.A.I.N. in Dub album. “Sharpen your cutlasses boys, theres a mighty stormy sea ahead!!”
We welcome The Blunders back to Cambridge after a fantastic benefit gig last year and a storming set at this year’s Fair.
Loud, full on and in your face no-holds-barred post punk at its best – that’s The Blunders. This band take no prisoners and are getting recognition for their live gigs and on the festival circuit. Tight and danceable with biting social commentry and savage humour from this West Country 3-piece.
They have 2 albums out and are currently working on a third.
Another long time fave of Scarecrow Corner, we are always very happy to welcome The Skraelings to Cambridge. They have played for us many times before, both at benefit gigs and at The Fair.
A 5-piece Essex-based band of noise deliverers, with roots in the 70s punk explosion.
Established in 1990, they blazed a three year trail across the stages of squatted parties and free festivals before summoning themselves into the timely now.
Their ‘Good Medicine’ EP is produced by Rat Scabies and Bob Earland. And they are currently working on new material.
