DEVIL IS ELECTRIC, THE: Self-titled: 7″ EP

Ever wonder what Fifteen sounded like with a lady at the helm, but didn’t suck quite as bad as Fifteen? TDIE’s “Important Public Announcement” preach punk where the music is secondary to the message, hamstringing the notes being played to the point of merely being a frame. Not so butt wiggling. Too harsh? Nah. Discount had fantastic music, a golden social conscious, and rocked like the dickens. You gotta bring the rock. Otherwise, write a pamphlet.
