Reviews Myles Deck and the Fuzz Police Cops

Myles Deck and the Fuzz

Police Cops

I guess Myles Deck and the Fuzz deliver what they promise on Police Cops. With a name referencing fuzz and a title copped from The Simpsons, the band offers three anti-police songs that I can throw on top of the landfill-size pile of similar-themed songs in my library.

The lyrics are juvenile and anthemic, which I also probably should have expected given the title. But you really don’t listen to a band like Myles Deck for the words. The band plays Stooges-influenced, groove-oriented, garage rock - the kind that you turn up to eleven and dance and sweat all the beer out. Once that’s happened, you drink some more and flip the record over. I’m not going to go into great detail because this style is pretty familiar and the band isn’t reinventing anything. This is loud rock’n’roll with a lot of swagger and 1960's influence. I’m sure it’s a great live show with a lot of energy, but that energy is lost on the record, with its almost too perfect production and the ridiculous lyrics. “Boom Boom” is the best song, but its “Boom boom I got me a gun…I think shooting cops is fun” lyrics make me grimace more than grin. For the most part, each song’s chorus is simply the title of the song being repeated.
