That disgruntlement wasn't assuaged by the Devils' break-up in 2001 — a dissolution made official with a live album titled R.I.P. (Sub Pop). But by 2006, they were having spotty reunions. Last spring, they started to record six new songs — their first in close to a decade, though there's no word on a release. Still, the Devils are largely best live, and Manny offers an old piece of advice that's always useful for enjoying this bleakly amusing stuff: "If you're going to go to a show, it should be a party. Have fun, dammit."
