The Devils named themselves after Ken Russel's trash classic movie from 1971. Inspired by listening to blues and punk and many other underground bands (The Cramps, Hound Dog Taylor, The Gories, Jon Spencer, Fugazi, Hasil Adkins, The Oblivians etc)
Gianni Vessella plays the guitar and sings. Erica Toraldo hits the drums and screams in the microphone. Following countless DIY shows in Italy and France they met Jim Diamond from the Dirtbombs who recorded their first full length album. The very same Day Reverend Beat-Man from Voodoo Rhythm records was in the same town and got their recordings and signed them up on the label.
The Devils is a huge wall of guitar fuzz and noise and vocals as stupid and minimalistic as it gets. The Devils is no Bob Dylan poetry. The Devils is pure evil and Lots of fun!! Chainsaw massacre hysteric earbleeding vocals. They are dressed up as preacher and nun. They destroy every stage that they can play on. They are hot and wild and very loud !!!!!
