A preacher's mouth and a rock 'n' roll heart – sometimes that's all it takes to make you move. The Murder City Devils never fail to stir these emotions in their audience; for the fans that need to feel it again, and for the fans that never have, the Devils are celebrating New Year's Eve in PortlandÃƒâ€š to deliver their powerful brand of sonic assault.
What makes the Devils rise above is that they understand rock 'n' roll is about much more than a simple formula – it's a lifestyle you naturally know or don't. The music, the lyrics, the look, and the vibe all have to be in sync. You either have it or you don't, and the Devils have a combination so few other bands in the genre possess – a gripping sound, a distinct message, a touch of the mysterious, and the know-how to give the fans exactly what they want.
Jello Biafra & The Guantanamo School of Medicine: In the twenty or so years since his brainchild Dead Kennedys officially disbanded, Jello Biafra has made a career of spoken word gigs interspersed with musical collaborations with some of the most compelling figures in underground music. Recording projects and touring with the likes of Melvins, No Means No, DOA, Mojo Nixon and Lard (with Ministry's Al Jorgensen) among others have kept his “hardcore as political weapon” message sharp, but the lack of his own band made these collaborations usually short-lived and left Biafra with a ton of songs that had never seen the light of day.
