Canadian band METZ—always capitalized, please—took some time on a recent, hot Sunday morning to meet us at Parson's Chicken And Fish and rock some faces off. While we dined on fried foods in the background, the trio set up and rocked through a cover of The Damned's "Neat Neat Neat," which you will almost surely enjoy. Though the song itself is 35(!) years old, it sounds as fresh and rocking as ever. METZ's debut album is called METZ, and it's a prize-winner.
