Beautiful Monster

Bildergebnis für Folk Devils

There were so many bands in the post-punk era that didn't made the success they should have. One of them were Folk Devils from Notting Hill, London. They released only a few singles and one full length album but were three times for sessions by John Peel. They gigged constantly often as openers for The Fall, Nick Cave and Spacemen 3. For me their sound was very unique. What made them great was their combination of blues inflected guitar figures on Rickenbacker guitar, metronomic drums  on a swampy sound. The more I listen to the more I looking back to these days.

I recognise the name Walter, but not the music - good stuff!
