Trophy Wives – Old Scratch

Trophy Wives is fronted by Billy Bisig, who played bass for a while in Elliott. That’s funny if you think about it because they were an emo band back when emo was not yet a dirty word. And now he’s in a band that’s trying to revisit grunge, another genre that started out original enough before it became somewhat of a dirty word as well.

There aren’t a lot of original ideas floating around here but it’s fun enough to listen to with loud riffs, pounding drums being slung at you while a vocalist with the right kind of raspy voice is going on about his insecurities. There are some definite Nirvana and QOTSA influences lingering around. Unfortunately you’ll also have to deal with a fair amount of Silverchair and Puddle of Mudd… yikes!
Score: 5 out of 10
