Never Bet The Devil Your Head

Thick 83

Released on June 11, 2002

This item is not available for purchase. Sorry!

Influenced by the drive and urgency of late 70's British punk, Chuck Berry guitar riffs, and the melodicism and bitterness of Elvis Costello, with a working-class ethic and D.I.Y determination, “brothers and sisters,” THE GC5. Balls to the wall rock’n’roll, complete with fierce guitars, street punk intensity and catchy fist raising anthems. Never Bet The Devil Your Head is the bands 4th record (2nd full length), and the kids barely twenty (two of which are brothers) know their roots. Recorded in their home town - Cleveland, Ohio - and produced by the Dropkick Murphy’s Ryan Foltz (who also plays organ and mandolin on the record) - themes of working class pride, leftside politics and antiestablishment outrage run rampant.

This is an amazing mix of steetpunk and good ol' hard rock n roll. There are bits and pieces strewn into these songs that find influence from the 70's to present day. In my top 3 records of 2002. Thoroughly solid and impressive from beginning to end. So good you can keep playing a song back so many times that it takes an hr or so to listen to the whole cd. I have read other reviewers of this cd that prefer Kisses From Hanoi over this one. As far as I'm considered, if you listen to Kisses From Hanoi 1st and then this cd, you can hear just how much more polished their sound has become. Don't get me wrong, Kisses from Hanoi is an excellent cd in and of itself, but I think they have defined their style with this one.

This is a great CD! I think I like Kisses from Hanoi better, but this is still good. Good street punk fused with rock n roll and blue collar lyrics. Similar to Dropkick Murphys.

This record rocks! It is one of those records that keeps getting better the more you listen to it. This is working class rock n roll. You can hear the soul and conviction of the band in the songs. Personally, I like their album "Kisses from Hanoi" more, but comparing them is like comparing sex with Jenna Jamison to sex with Traci Lords: either way you're getting your money's worth.

This album picks right up where Hanoi left off at. To me this album is more rock and roll based with a real growth in songwriting. You definitely should here this.

Really good street punk. Probably one of the only bands out thier with tons of potential and upside. Get it if you like Dropkick Murphys, Rancid, The Forgotten, Virus Nine, and Pistol Grip

I've known about these guys for a little while. I've heard their first album briefly at parties, and saw them open for Dropkick Murphys, but wasn't familiar enough with their stuff to really get into them. The one thing that really stood out in my mind was their cover of The Replacements "Bastards of Young". So on my way home from work, the local college station played "Breakin' Down" and "Lies & Prophecies" and I went nuts! I cranked the radio so loud, I drowned out the car next to me with the kicker box playin' some crappy techo shit. So I HAD to get this album, and I ordered it as soon as I got home. The whole thing is solid, start to finish. Kick ass street punk, with touches of the Replacements and the Pouges. BUY THIS ALBUM!!!
