SILVER DAGGERS were a leading mover in the Los Angeles-based all-ages noise/art scene associated with Not Not Fun Records and “The Smell” club a half decade ago. They formed in 2003, peaked on vinyl around 2007 or so, and that’s really about the last I heard from them.

I dug their angle of attack – weirdly left of center horn-bleating, agitprop shouting and tight rhythms wrapped up in a cocoon of noise. This is “Joy” from their only album, about as close to a hit as they ever had, which is to say not close at all.
