Scant Regard Talks new Music, Shows, And More Music!

Scant Regard began in 2011, as a solo project, after Will Crewdson the person behind this act, was involved with other bands and music in general. Now that this project has been active, the electro, pop, rockabilly, industrialist funk go getter is going to continue it for all it is worth! With a handful of works, already out in the open, with more material underway, shows lined-up to pass the time, with so much more, there is no stopping Scant Regard!

1. Please tell us about the history of your project?

I started doing Scant Regard as a solo project in 2011 after having played for years in bands like Rachel Stamp and for artists like Adam Ant. Now I try and do both.

It was something I’d always wanted to do but never had the time before. I immediately loved the freedom of playing on my own and being able to fuse the electronic music that I admired with my guitar playing.

2. What’s the origin of the project's name?

Scant Regard stands for not having to care about anything else around whether that be current trends or other bands. As well as that I liked the way the words looked and sounded.

3. Where is the project based out of and what is your music scene like there? Are there any local bands you could recommend?

I’m based in London. The music scene is still thriving but like anywhere else it’s harder to find a focused trend as venues are forever closing and re-branding themselves.

I’d recommended The Blue Carpet Band as they seem to not give a fuck to the degree I admire and they have a great image and front man.

4. How would you describe your style?

I was described as a 21st Century Link Wray. I’ll go with that.

5. What have you released so far and what can someone expect from your works?

I’ve had 5 albums out. Starting from more experimental instrumental soundtrack-like stuff and now covering lots more bases. My latest album "Skipping Over Damaged Area", still carries on that blueprint but there’s more vocals and choruses going on.

6. Do you have any new music in the works?

I’m just about to put out a cover version EP called "BUTCHERIZATION" and I’m always working on new tracks so hopefully there’ll be another full album out next year.

7. How about playing shows and touring, have anything planned out?

I’m playing in Los Angeles at the Redwood Bar on November 12th as I’ll be over there already playing guitar with The Selecter on their west coast tour. After that the next UK gig will be December 7th at the brilliant Rockaway Beach club at the London Hope and Anchor.

8. What plans do you have for the future as a project?

More gigs hopefully. I’m happy to go anywhere and plug in and do it. One of the best reactions I’ve had live was in Berlin so I’d love to do more German and European dates.

9. Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?

All links at - you can get CD’s direct from me there. I’m also on Spotify and all the rest of the garbage.

10. What is it you’d like a listener to remember the most when hearing your music for the first time?

Whatever they see when they close their eyes.
