IMPACT was Scary-Go-Round’s first official song. Ironically, the only song written by Jason Oliver. It came into existance one afternoon when Oliver, Duron, and Alexander jammed in Oliver’s practice space. Jason would sing melodies, Roby would find them on his guitar, and Alexander would then double it on bass. Due to Impact’s aggressive percussive smorgasbord style, Jim Sloan declined to add vocals. The band was happy to leave it as an instrumental showing diversity. Although Jason’s effortless drum execution, reminiscent of Neil Peart, was praised among SGR fans. The excessive drum solo style flavor eventually became the very reason the Oliver was outcast from the project (and he stole Jim’s girlfriend Becky.)
