I Threw Glass at My Friend's Eyes and Now I'm on Probation
Poets come in many shades and it’s not a description one casually throws to a young (mostly) female punk rock band.
But the best poetry captures moments in time, and the searing visceral stories that Oakland’s Destroy Boys snarl on their 2 currently released LPs are alternately angry, mocking, pithy and wryly amused. Tales of misanthropic school days, elitist parties and drunken frat boy shaming barely scratch the surface of the vision into their world. Destroy Boys have their roots in Bay Area punk but their hearts are in a larger universe.
