Darryl Smyers Recommends

For the better part of two decades, Seattle’s Murder City Devils have been making a glorious noise, a wild and raunchy mix of punk and classic garage rock. Starting in 1996, Spencer Moody and crew have produced a handful of albums that have rarely deviated from the standard three chords and shout-along choruses. Songs like “Boom Swagger Boom,” “Broken Glass” and “Get Off the Floor” (all from the band’s debut) tell a good deal of the story and saw the Murder City Devils finding fans of members of Nirvana and Pearl Jam. There is a common intensity linking the Devils to their more famous Seattle brethren, although the violent and horrific lyrical concerns are a bit disconcerting. In any case, the best thing to be said about Murder City Devils is that very few bands sound like them, and it’s a pretty good bet that even fewer will do so in the future.
