“A 21st Century Link Wray” John Robb (Louder Than War)
"He really should know better....but I'm glad he doesn't" Tom Robinson (BBC 6 Music)
Will Crewdson is Scant Regard. A solo one-man whirlwind of pure unadulterated guitar driven energy. Also known for his guitar work with Adam Ant, The Selecter, Johnette Napolitano, Rachel Stamp and Flesh for Lulu, Will rams home all his experience into this mind-bending apocalyptic amalgamation of epic soundtrack proportions.
He deftly merges the early electronic pioneering flavours of Fad Gadget, Cabaret Voltaire and Nitzer Ebb with the classic twanging guitar sounds of Duane Eddy and Link Wray, adding to this a smattering of post punk energy and attitude to wrap it all up in a blood stained bow.
Scant Regard's 6th album, You Know The Drill embarks on a sci-fi tinged mission to bombard your senses with Will’s trademark frenetic twanging guitar placed deftly on an electronic bed of beats. From the sarcastic knowingness of Ulterior Motives to the brooding mournful soundscape of Heart Torn Blood Ratio, You Know The Drill is all banger, no clanger.
