A history of indie rock icons: Flesh Devils

Hailing from downtown Youngstown, Flesh Devils climbed to the top of the the indie rock scene in 2002 with their debut album, Solid Gold: Our Life in Song. The band’s latest album, Doppelganger’s Delirium, melds Boo McGallagher’s disaffected lyrics with intelligent guitar parts to slap together some seriously inspired concoctions. With standout tracks like “Sweet Grits and Chaste Thoughts,” don’t be surprised if you find Flesh Devils at the top of the indie rock charts and beyond.
