    Thee Scarecrows aka
    The Great Rook 'n' Crow Swindle 10" Picture Disc LP

    Left to stand alone in the fields of Walton Farm, protecting the crops from varmints and birds, Thee Scarecrows pulled up their stakes and shuffled into Walton Ranch.
    They found the place empty except for some ramshackle musical 'instruments' left behind by Thee boys before they mysteriously disappeared...
    Here's what the experts have to say about the The Great Rook 'n' Crow Swindle by Thee Scarecrows AKA:

    Mark Robertson (original Meteors drummer): "A double drummer fuelled romp through the cornfields of craziness. Great album - get your mitts on one now. "
    Nick Garrard: "These new recordings had me pondering, what is inside a scarecrow? Well, these surely have a brain. Nothing rum about this! Strong songs with hypnotic musical arrangements. Buzz, fuzz, a pummeling racket, a demonic wailing harp, gruff vocals and lashings of Louisiana Hoo-Haw hot sauce. The choice of unusual instruments and tip-top reference points will give you crows listening, as you smoke your Havana cigars, an unusual and pleasurable aural experience. Suck it all in, let it fester a while, then will come the contorted gormless grin as you exhale. If you’re going to see them live and have to cross the corn field after dark, stick to the path and beware the moon."
    Captain Drugbuster: "These cats have rocked my world with their Crazy blend of psychotic blues, and there's No stopping them. So catch them when you can! You won't be disappointed! No more... No Less!"
    Slim (Blubbery Hellbellies): "The Scarecrows AKA are like Slim Harpo meets Worzel Gummidge in a fantastic mixture that takes you from the Swamps of Louisiana to Scatterbrook Farm and everywhere in between."
