Murder By Guitar

No good rock 'n' rollers with a punk attitude, Crime were a San Francisco band made famous by their 1976 single, "Hot Wire My Heart". 'Murder By Guitar' is a compilation of the early, snarling singles that caught the attention of San Fran, as well as nine tunes they recorded around the same time. There's a song on here called "Piss On Your Dog", which in title alone is indicative of the kind of band Crime were.


Crime were part of the San Francisco punk scene of the late 70s. This box set comprises their entire recorded output including four 7” singles featuring previously unreleased tracks from 1977-79. Their song, Hot wire My Heart was covered by Sonic Youth on their Sister LP. The box set includes seven 7” singles and a twenty page booklet featuring an in-depth interview with the band.
