LOVE ME DESTROYER: Black Heart Affair: CD

Aug 06, 2009

I’m going to invent a new genre with this review: “punk noir,” or would “noir punk” be better? Stylish, moderately melodic, straight-ahead, three-chord punk songs about widows crawling out of the bottle and switchblades and infidelity and domestic violence. If Phillip Marlowe hooked up with Social Distortion and did songs written by Billy Joe from Green Day, this is what it would sound like. Not bad at all.
