Blog de Musique

This is a music blog. Different kinds of music. And commentary on said music. Most of the files uploaded will be AAC files (because I'm an Apple guy) so you best have iTunes to play them. Sorry if you don't. (If any links are dead, leave a comment and I'll reupload.)

I buy way too much music for my own good and then waste my time talking about what music I've bought on my blog.

New Bomb Turks/The Devil Dogs "Split 7" Single"

Today's upload is the split 7" single from New York rock 'n' roll band, The Devil Dogs and Ohio's New Bomb Turks. In a not surprising move, the split sees each band covering each other's songs.

The Dogs do a scorching rendition of the Turks' Tattooed Apathetic Boys which, in my opinion, blows the original away.

The New Bomb Turks compete with Andy G and the boys with their "medley" of Devil Dogs tunes. If you're old enough to remember those Stars on '45' medleys from the 80s, you get the joke with the handclaps throughout the song. If you don't remember, then don't worry about it and just rock out.

These two bands really changed my mind about the energy of music vs. the quality of music. A song does not have to have professional grade production quality to be a good song. A lot of garage rock songs are recorded in shitty lo-fi and they are just as good (if not better) than anything on the radio today. The Devil Dogs and New Bomb Turks always had lo-fi recordings on their albums/singles and they tear it apart.

This is what rock 'n' roll is about. Some call it punk rock. Some call it garage rock. Whatever you call it, you have to get off your ass and dance when you hear these two bands. Check out the Turks' first album Destroy Oh-Boy! and the Devil Dogs penultimate album Saturday Night Fever for more proof of their greatness.
