Velvet Hammer is one of the saddest, most heartbreaking records you will ever hear. It's soaked in tears and alcohol, punctuated with bruises and frostbitten fingers. Whether the songs of fractured relationships within are of romantic or familial nature, they sting with equally biting resonance.

Scrawl, or as I like to refer to them, 'The Most Overlooked Band of the 1990s', were an all-female trio from Ohio that pre-empted the riot grrl movement by several years, releasing their debut Plus, Also, Too in 1987. All the hallmarks of that short-lived yet massively important genre were in place in Scrawl's music before long - sloppy, noisy guitar playing; defiant, feminine lyrics that dealt unflinchingly with topics like rape and domestic abuse; and passionate, furious performances. Scrawl arrived at their peak just as riot grrl as a movement became a media sensation.
