Spoken word avant-rock with an improvisational jazz approach, featuring independent stalwarts J. Mascis, Mike Watt, and George Hurley. The NYC trio push their blown-out garage-blues sound into new territory, on both reinterpreted classics and originals.

Andrei Lomaka. Oscar Garcia-Mateo. Purchasable with gift card. Against the Wall Oh Baby, Please The Week Song Hay into Gold Long Dark Sky A chunky guitar rips into the introduction of the title song, a classic heat blasted slice of American music with a sludge like bottom topped by harmonica acrobatics from Hunter and a fierce guitar solo from another guest musician, Stefan Roller.
Oh Baby, Please has Cacavas let loose on the organ while the sax drives a sixties garage punk riff that snarls with a pout not heard or seen since The Fleshtones, a song waiting to be discovered by hipsters on dance floors all over Tarantino land, again, play loud and just surrender to the dumb beat.
The Week Song is unfortunately titled as it palls in comparison to its predecessors but the opening chords of Hay Into Gold with a cello abetting the powerful bass and drum highway drive take us back into a dark Americana underbelly, lanced by shards of lap steel as the song creeps along in a disturbing stalking fashion.
Long Dark Sky maintains this haunting, even threatening menace. Although it opens with a mighty mid sixties Who like thrash it soon unravels into a neon lit David Lynch nightmare lyrically while at the end the band bring it back to The Who with a mischievous morse code guitar stutter and thrashing Moon like drums. The only complaint here is that it ends far too soon. Acoustic and tender it affords a ray of light in comparison to the devilish mayhem that precedes it while the closing song, Rest Of My Life , is another plea, plaintive this time, to be released from the shackles of the heart and given an uplifting feel with some winsome lap steel.
Overall Me And The Devil is a cracking album while the excellent cover art by Deborah Maggioncalda adds to the attraction. Very highly recommended. Excellent album!! I LOVE it.. Great sound. Love ETC.
