The Months – Necromancy

The Moths
Necromancy: Rock-N-Roll

The Moths = Joy Division + Dead Boys + Killing Joke

There is no better description for The Moths than their own self-description as rock noir. The Moths have an infectious energy that is dark, hauntingly lively and delightfully provocative. Necromancy: Rock-N-Roll is a brilliant mix of gothic-punk passion with sounds from psychedelic garage that meet a primal post-punk nature, and has the ability to totally consume the unsuspecting mind of the unwary listener. I found this especially true after listening to the tracks “The Yelling Sack” and “Eye.” The release of Necromancy Rock-N-Roll includes the EP, a booklet, a yelling sack and a bonus disc of over an hour’s worth of inaudible noise titled “!Nata Drol Liah LIA!” So, buyers, beware: This is something unique to our city and should be spun without hesitation. –Nick Kuzmack
