The Best Kind of Dirty
â€šÃ„ÃºI Donâ€šÃ„Ã´t Give A Fuck Where The Eagle Fliesâ€šÃ„Ã¹ is the perfect summation of the Moistboyz sound and style. Brash attitude, swear-laden lyrics, riff-happy hard-rock grooves and an infectious knack for melody litter the dark alley that is the Moisboyz IV. Dickie Moist spits rapid-fire barbs of frustration â€šÃ„ÃºUp in the sky, itâ€šÃ„Ã´s a bird, itâ€šÃ„Ã´s a plane / Itâ€šÃ„Ã´s a thorn in my side and it makes me insane / Aryan race with American eyes / And I donâ€šÃ„Ã´t give a fuck where the eagle fliesâ€šÃ„Ã¹ laced with less anger or fury than you might expect. In fact itâ€šÃ„Ã´s almost joyous hard-rock decadence. Such is the tone of the majority of the album coupled with a smidge of delay on Dickieâ€šÃ„Ã´s vocals and just the right balance of distortion and sullied warmth on Mickey â€šÃ„ÃºDean Weenâ€šÃ„Ã¹ Moistâ€šÃ„Ã´s guitar.Other early songs â€šÃ„ÃºUncle Sam and Meâ€šÃ„Ã¹ and â€šÃ„ÃºCaptain Americaâ€šÃ„Ã¹ continue the motif of Bush-era political frustration (the former upbeat and rowdy, the latter twangy palm-muted grooves) with the rest of the album boasting brutally unfiltered honest lyrics. The kind of unadulterated expression one prays for that actually manages not to be juvenile. Smutty and grimy perhaps, but thankfully itâ€šÃ„Ã´s not juvenile.
â€šÃ„ÃºWhite Trash,â€šÃ„Ã¹ â€šÃ„ÃºYear of the Maggotâ€šÃ„Ã¹ and â€šÃ„ÃºThatâ€šÃ„Ã´s What Rock and Roll Can Doâ€šÃ„Ã¹ bring the raucous energy made for circles pits and dark seedy bars while the patient jam of â€šÃ„ÃºThe Stalkerâ€šÃ„Ã¹ contain Mickeyâ€šÃ„Ã´s fantastic guitar adlibs and solos. Moistboyz IV may not be anything that could connect with a mass audience but for those that love uncompromised metal, punk and rock and roll will love this album.
