For many years, Murphy’s Law was a band who didn’t need an introduction. But without a new release in nearly seventeen years, New York’s most legendary party band might need at least a brief introduction for younger audiences. In short, Murphy’s Law is one of just a few bands that remain from the ‘golden era’ of New York hardcore. Their rise paralleled those of Agnostic Front, Warzone, Leeway, and Cro-Mags. They rose with legends and have managed to outlast many of them. For his part, Jimmy Gestapo, the band’s enigmatic frontman, has kept Murphy’s Law going for so many years. And he is truly one of the greatest and most engaging performers I’ve ever seen live. I don’t say that lightly either. And I suggest you go to a Murphy’s Law show before you get all contrarian on me. But enough of the backstory. The Party’s Over remains Murphy’s Law’s last full-length record and was released way back on 2001 on Artemis Records. As a complete release, The Party’s Over is a great showcase of the melodic punk-laden hardcore that Murphy’s Law is known for. It rocks with a fun and feel-good vibe from start to finish, very much reflecting the band’s live show. The record also offers a bit of insight into the band’s crossover appeal. It’s aggressive enough for hardcore purists but certainly rings with enough melody to keep the punk and indie-rock listeners interested.
