Metal Marty (from the album Greatest Hits available on Acetate Records) (by Bryant Liggett)
Metal Marty is a capable Rock’n’Roller. He’s proved that with the work he’s put in with The Supersuckers, doing the heavy guitar lifting in that band for a number of years now, and as he stretches out on his own with the drop of Greatest Hits, he shows he’s a heck of a bandleader, frontman, and dude that can handle numerous iterations of the Rock.
He drops a super-catchy, drunken singalong, stadium Rock vibe in “Magic City”, “Idaho Baby”, and “For Whatever Its Worth”, the first two nodding to his home state of Idaho, the latter being a little Cowpunk, and thanks to a chugging fiddle, Pogues-inspired Celtic-Punk.
“Godddamn Divorce” is an anthem that hits at everything annoying about an at times necessary action, “What’s All This” is part Tejano, part ska, and all bouncy-fun, while “The Locals” is a fantastic nod to your home-town, home-bar, and home-boys or gals; another great drunken singalong. Metal Marty drops steamy, rough around the edges, and hard-hitting ballads, in “Bumps and Bruises” and “The Reckless Kind.”
This is working-class Rock. Gritty garage jams, anthemic fist-pumpers, and an overall good-time, Blue Collar vibe that shows Metal Marty isn’t afraid to treat the studio like a garage or job-site and his instruments as sturdy power tools, which they are. Greatest Hits is Metal Marty being a more than competent foreman with a fist-full of skills.
