Evil Scarecrow’s missing track finally released! A message from Dr Hell!
“Okay, so when we released Sixty-Six Minutes Past Six (6:66) we felt obligated to try and do something with our most popular track Robototron. The original recording of this was horrible, it made our ears sad and, as with a lot of our original album Crowcifiction, was not really representative of our live show. So we recorded it again. We also made a video for the new recording. We were also thoughtful enough to then include this as a bonus track on the physical 6:66 CD.
“But there was a problem. A problem we didn’t even really notice until we started looking at the digital distribution of our latest album.
We never included this bonus track on our digital release of 6:66! This means for the past 6 years the only way people were able to listen to the (half decent) version of Robototron is from the original CD, the video (via Scuzz or youTube) or maybe an illegal download rip of the CD. The poor buggers who bought the album via iTunes/Amazon mp3 or stream our music via services like Spotify have been left with the (kind of embarrassing) original version.
“We’re happy to announce though that this hole has now been plugged and you can complete your digital Scarecrow back catalogue with the definitive version of the track, now available through all your favourite digital outlets. “Robototron (2009)” may be 6 years late and not hugely reflective of where are now as a band, but we hope at least the original version will now be quieted in some way and we can try harder to pretend it never happened.”
