GLUECIFER : Rock'n'roll / Just what the doctor ordered (Nugent) // MURDER CITY DEVILS : In this town / Can't seem to make you mine (Seeds).Gluecifer was a hard rock band based in Oslo, Norway. Formed in 1994, they produced several underground releases during their first years of existence and soon claimed to be "kings of rock".
In 1997, the album 'Ridin' the Tiger' (released on record label White Jazz) provided an artistic and commercial breakthrough and placed Gluecifer among Hellacopters from Sweden at the forefront of the Scandinavian hard rock wave of the late 90s. 'Basement Apes', their fourth album, saw them signing with Sony Music, and 'Automatic Thrill' became their biggest-selling record to date.The band played at the 2004 Quart Festival as warmup for Monster Magnet.
In July, 2005, the band announced their break-up.
Unlike most punk acts of the '90s who travel along punk/pop and alternative ways of the rock genre, the Murder City Devils choose to stay in control of their riffs. Keeping a strong presence of simple features of pure rock & roll, the Devils finish up showing clean yet raw compositions, supposedly connecting them to the punk style.
An original & a cover for each band, 'Rock'n'roll' and Ted Nugents' 'Just was the doctor ordered' (from his fabulous 1st lp) for Glucifer .'In this town' and the Seeds' 'Can't seem to make you mine' for the Murder City Devils . A real rockin' ep !
