Biography

Brooklyn, NY, USA (2004 – present)

That Handsome Devil is a Brooklyn, NY, USA band which includes Christian Oppel (aka Godforbid), Jeremy Page, Naoko Takamoto, Jeremy Siegel, Sam Merrick and Deflon Sallahr. They debuted with EP Dating Tips / How to Get Money (2004, Art & Craft) and their latest album is Drugs & Guns For Everyone (Nov 2014).

Take a ride with That Handsome Devil to the other side of town: a neighborhood where Charles Bukowski hung his hat at a juke joint; where the bartender knew Hunter Thompson’s single malt of choice and kept plenty in stock. This is the place where That Handsome Devil’s front man Godforbid calls home, where producer Jeremy Page bangs on a bullet-riddled piano, its beaten keys howling from a smoky corner. A place with enough Molotov cocktails, skag, booze, and sleazy women to horrify the most hardened of old timers. A City Dressed in Dynamite is the soundtrack to this bizarre scene, and it’s pointless to fight it -just throw caution to the wind and take the ride. Put your life in the hands of your sharply dressed tour guide Godforbid, and just pray that you’ll live to tell the story… or at least what you can remember.

The album starts off like a jolt of lighting with Damn Door, a dense lounge track declaring the album’s intent before tumbling into the dark, piercingly intense Wintergreen. Keeping the tempo up is the distinctive Rob the Prez-O-Dent, employing unique arrangements and an over-the-top subject matter to guarantee a lasting impression. At this point A City Dressed in Dynamite slows to a strut while limping past the hustlers and junkies in Pills for Everything.

    They really should reissue their discography in vinyl, including Dating Tips single.

    Why more people do not check out That Handsome Devil does not make sense to my brain.

    Smoking cigarettes while listening to this band - feel like I'm smack bang in the middle of a Tarantino movie.

    "March" off the new EP is the best song right now.

    Flipron are also similar to THD but they don't have the same atmosphere. I have to buy some THD albums.

    I don't really think Major Parkinson is THAT similar to THD, but it's an incredible recommendation nonetheless. It's my newest obsession.

    There's a Norwegian band called Major Parkinson that reminds me of THD as well. They're pretty good.

    That should probably read "jazz leanings, the vocals, wordplay, Hell and even the surf guitars" A-yup.

    Yeah, great stuff from what I've heard so far. I'd recommend giving Foetus a shot (if you haven't done so already). It's very eclectic, dark stuff and there is a ton of it. If you enjoy the jazz leanings, the vocals, wordplay and hell even the surf guitars, find an album (Flow, Deaf, Ache, Nail or Hole would be a good entry point). It's probably the closest thing you'll find trying to pigeonhole this kind of music.

    No one is similar to THD. They are their own genre, their own type of music, their own type of way of doing life. And that's just how it goes. bro
