About the Murder City Devils
Hailing from the historic punk hotbed of Seattle, the Murder City Devils showcase punk and garage band styles with powerful, raw, and fierce tunes that would do the Dead Boys and the Misfits proud, while coming from a place so dark that it pre-empts any intimation of hipsterhood. In 1996 the Murder City Devils were formed by Spencer Moody on vocals, Derek Fudesco on bass, and Dann Gallucci on guitar. Moody, Gallucci, and Fudesco had all been a part of Area 51 and would eventually strike out on their own.
The Murder City Devils would release their debut recording, a 7" with three songs, with the help of drummer Coady Willis and guitarist Nate Manny, in 1997. Later in the year, the Die Young Stay Pretty Records label would pick up the Devils to put out their self-titled first release. Empty Bottles, Broken Hearts would follow the next year, and the Murder City Devils would make the move up to Die Young Stay Pretty's parent label, Sub Pop. The band would tour to promote this album, and by this time had added keyboard sections originally from Fudesco and Gallucci. For the tour, however, the keyboard section would be played by a specially hired keyboardist named Leslie Hardy. The band's roadie, one Gabe, would be listed as a band member on the album sleeves. Although the band was touring hard at this time, they would prove their multi-tasking skills by releasing 7" singles through the Hopscotch and Die Young Stay Pretty labels within the year.
In 2000, the Murder City Devils would come out with their third full-length album, In Name and Blood. This album would feature covers of "Hybrid Moments" by The Misfits and "I'll Come Running" by Neil Diamond, as well as eleven original tunes
The Murder City Devils diversified a bit with Thelema in 2001, a six-song EP that features a Christmas song with acoustic guitar entitled "364 Days," more polished production, and more tempered tempos. After the release of Thelema they would go on a nationwide tour, and finished off with a bang when they announced at a Halloween show in Seattle that this would be their last show. The concert would be videotaped and a live CD would be recorded, resulting in 2003's R.I.P. Gallucci and Fudesco would go on to join other popular bands - the former to Modest Mouse and the later to Pretty Girls Make Graves. The Murder City Devils occasionally reunite and have reportedly begun work on new material.
The Murder City Devils' most beloved songs are "Press Gang," "Rum to Whiskey," and "Idle Hands." Their most critically acclaimed album would be 2000's In Name and Blood, which garnered a staff pick on Allmusic for its blend of gothic organ, punk backbone, and straightforward styles.
The Murder City Devils' incredible moniker was borrowed with the consent of the band's friend, Joshua Plague. Plague was another active member of the music scene as the lead singer for Behead the Prophet and Mukilteo Fairies, and had come up with the name of Murder City Devils for a previous band from Olympia, Washington that had eventually dissolved.
