Sounding like a more agitated version of Minor Threat/Fugazi legend Ian MacKaye, Ink & Dagger singer Sean McCabe had an unruly vocal delivery that perfectly complemented Don Devore’s rubbery guitar riffs. McCabe’s magnetic stage presence and dark yet often humorous lyrics -- something sorely lacking in the '90s Philadelphia punk scene -- helped the group set itself apart from the rest of the VFW circuit. Sadly, McCabe died in 2000 after passing out from drinking alcohol and choking on his own vomit in a motel room in Indiana.
