Scroat Belly

9 p.m., Friday, January 12. Blueberry Hill's Duck Room (6504 Delmar Boulevard, University City).

Of all the mid-'90s twangcore thrashers — Jason and Scorchers, Pumpskully, the SupersuckersScroat Belly was likely the least listenable, and certainly the loudest. With triple-time, double-kick drum rhythms, guitars more pistol-whipped than played, and hooks pointed enough to hang the corpses of the rural caricatures who drank themselves to death in their songs, the 'Belly represented everything that was wrong with country punk. But thank them for giving birth to Split Lip Rayfield and thank founder Kirk Rundstrom (who's still making mayhem through the final months of terminal cancer) for giving Scroat Belly one last chance to send you straight to country hell.
