I would say it's a bit of both. Almost a certainty that they will be there anyway as guests.

Playing Amplified and The Rock & Bike Fest, so I would guess that playing Bloodstock is likely.

I met the bass player,Craig, about three years ago either way they wasnt on the bill. He said they had free tickets that year so wouldn't read that much into that.

Two years since they played. Seem to play every two years or so....

Not that I want them, just expecting them.

It does seem crushingly inevitable, can't go more than 2 years without that stupid crab dance can we. :rolleyes:

I have never listened to Evil Scarecrow. I've seen them mentioned quite frequently though.

Seeing the crowd move like crabs is amusing for a minute or two but joke wears thin after that. Comedy act that once you have seen them you will have no desire to repeat it.

I've enjoyed them every time I've seen them. On the flipside, I don't think I have ever bought any of their stuff. I would be more than happy to see them back. They'd probably command 3rd or 4th slot up these days at a guess?

I agree with this. Really can't listen to them on album, it just doesn't work, but they're always a good laugh live. Would definitely see them if they turned up but I'm not exactly hoping they get announced

Saw them the first time they played Bloodstock and quite enjoyed them, but every time since I have been bored by the first song or two. Bit of a one trick pony for me.

They have Steel Panther syndrome, enjoyable the first few times you hear/see them but after the novelty wears off you find little to hold your attention. If you can see them at a festival or for free then I'd say go for it, otherwise I'd give them a pass.

Well the new year is when the quality drops in the announcements, lets see if they break with tradition
