Rocks Off was sure that Houston's Morgue City was a metal band - it's a perfect metal name, that's for sure. Not quite. The Houston duo, descended from bondage-loving former HPMA Best Industrial winners Bozo Porno Circus, plays a brand of "noiz" not far off from KMFDM or My Life With the Thrill Kill Kult. Rocks Off sampled a few of MC's MySpace songs this afternoon, and since his iPod has already been spitting out a steady mix of the Jesus & Mary Chain, Echo & the Bunnymen (whom MC recall on the more subduded "Nature of the Beast") and selections from the 2006 anthology A Life Less Lived: The Goth Box lately, liked what we heard. "My New Gun" is serious Motley Crue hard rock, while "Smashing Suxie", on the other hand, is a little more industrial. Morgue City plays Boondocks at 10 p.m. tonight, although Rocks Off gets the feeling they might feel a little bit more comfortable at Numbers.
