American Devices, The, The American Devices

Originally released in 2006, this is a compilation of greatest hits by The American Devices, a lo-fi freak punk group born out of the first wave Montreal punk scene and led by noted underground cartoonist Rick Trembles. The American Devices have been recording and playing continuously under the radar for 32 years. This CD comes with a detailed 12 page booklet and a bonus mini-poster featuring an extremely meticulous hand-drawn Montreal punk family tree that has become an important info guide for collectors internationally. Includes the infamous "Suck My Rocks". Guitarist/Vocalist Rick Trembles is best known for his Motion Picture Purgatory comic strips & books and perhaps the highest praise possible courtesy of Robert Crumb who noted that Rick is "even more twisted and weird than me."
