Folk Devils Beautiful Monster / Nice People 7″

The second 7” by this band continues along with their accent on heavily rhythmic, rockin’ melodies. There are tinges of more “erratic” groups like the FALL or BIRTHDAY PARTY, but the approach here is more straightforward. B-side rocks hard.

Folk Devils Hank Turns Blue / Chewing the Flesh 7″

Long-term followers of the UK music scene are well aware of the strict regimentation that has been firmly established there, and they should be equally aware of the increasing rarity of bands that actually dare to ignore all the predetermined guidelines for acceptance. It seems like the FOLK DEVILS are one such band. These guys play furious, uproaring rock with a very hard-edged R&B feel. Not overbearing, but simply destructive in an almost subtle way. A real band concerning itself with real music… not empty words.
