Pure electrified blues .... THE DEVILS have been playing pure electrified blues for most of a lifetime. The inspiration comes from American revival group, The Red Devils, and the Texas style blues, The Fabulous Thunderbirds and SRV.
The Red Devils were an excellent exponent of the sequel to the Chicago Blues of the 60s.
THE DEVILS keep this style alive.
The Devils have been playing the blues in different bands the last 30 years, and the current members have more bluesexperience than most. This is as good as it´s get, and this uncompromising approach to the music is seldom seen on the blues scene.
THE DEVILS perform with full intent, as if the band is about to be killed at dawn. The sound is raw, and the vocals overpowering. The material timeless without succumbing to boring clichés and endless rivers of 12-bar blandness barred from proper feel and form. Here You find songs heard all to rarely penned by some of the great blues fathers (including Howlin 'Wolf, Memphis Slim, Sonny Boy Williamson and Willie Dixon), but THE DEVILS have chosen to stay away from the standards and focus on the blues that all too easily falls by the wayside.
The Devils first album was created as a collective collaboration with Jesper Bo Nielsen. These five blues lovers crafted a record markedly raw and immediate, yet well-rehearsed and thought out from start to finish. All five instruments (incl. Vocals) were recorded live, all ten songs cut in less than a total of a few hours with a joy and energy that only comes about, when experienced musicians come together and share a musical space with one common goal: Pure electrified blues. No bullshit!
