Scruffy & The Janitors: Anglo

Anglo is a short, sweet, and in your face EP from Scruffy & The Janitors, a garage rock trio from  up the road in St. Joesph, MO. They’ve been getting some attention from radio stations around the area and for good reason .They’re a pretty good blues rock band just getting their feet wet (this is their first EP not recorded in a living room). Overall it’s a pretty standard hard rock EP. They don’t try to reinvent the wheel with any other their songs but they don’t really need to. Each song is less than 4 minutes and all but one of them is longer than 3 minutes. The lead singer of the band was…
