Spencer Moody is considered rock royalty in Seattle, mainly due to his tenure as the lead vocalist in The Murder City Devils, which, in my mind, is somewhat dubious -- mainly due to the fact that said band only released a half album of decent material throughout its formative years. Very hit or miss, but the half that was good was exceptional. Since then, his output has improved somewhat with the short-lived Dead Low Tide and the brilliantly succinct Smoke And Smoke, both projects which only dropped one disc each and let him showcase his more hard rocking side. Smoke And Smoke was actually quite brilliant, drawing its potency primarily from the bass-playing genius of the late Enemymine's Mike Kunka.
