Jack Rabid reviewing Face it Again in the spring 2011 "The Big Takeover":
More historic bands should open vaults and share the way this punk-era band does—in carefully curated albums for free download online (or helpful donation).
Installment three of Toronto’s Scenics’ series offers their first three gigs’ unveiling, and the amount of conception/rehearsal they’d already invested shows in how together they are on seven songs from their August 27-29, 1977 debut at Toronto’s Beverly Tavern; two rougher recordings supporting Talking Heads’ first tour at The New Yorker Theater that September (I need a time machine!); and two basement demos.
From slower art rock such as the previously unheard “I’m Sad” to the faster neo-Modern Lovers verve of “Face It Again,” it reminds that the “Canada’s Velvet Underground” shorthand was a start in appraisal—they do a slower “What Goes On,” plus a cool Roxy Music cover—but The Scenics had grander designs.
