Since that magic moment in 2004, the Daredevils have crapped out four brilliantly raw examples of their craft, including 2007’s extra-super-fine Old Favorites, where they recorded nitro-cooled versions of the most visceral Hardcore tracks in the known universe: Minor Threat’s “Straight Edge” performed as a Punkabilly greaser band in the roadhouse at Hell’s city limits, a Johnny-Cash-on-trucker-speed-and-bathtub-gin reading of Circle Jerks’ “Wasted” and a Delaware Destroyers take on Black Flag’s “I Don’t Care.” The band’s most recent collection of raunch-and-roll is titled The Very Best of the Whiskey Daredevils, which is packed to the brim with new recordings.
There aren’t many guarantees in life, but whatever the time or circumstance one thing is dead solid certain: If Greg Miller and the Whiskey Daredevils are in town, a good time will be had by them. And if you’ve got any sense at all, you’ll join them — it’s always best to be behind the Daredevils’ headlights rather than in front of them where the roadkill stands.
