THE FOLK DEVILS - Goodnight Irony (vinyl-rip)
Today’s musical offering at the alter of rawk’n’roll comes from the swamp lands of West London; Goodnight Irony is basically the ‘Greatest Hits’ (if they’d had any) of the criminally ignored Folk Devils. It is a collection of wired and wild, spikey and fiery amphetamine laced rock’n’roll. From their debut single Hank Turns Blue to a track from their last Peel Session It Drags On, it’s great stuff. The bands front man Ian Lowery started out as the original singer The Wall, before going on to release records with Agent Orange and Ski Patrol, before forming The Folk Devils, who incidentally trivia fans were managed by Ray Ganges, the rather mixed up would be roadie in The Clash’s Rude Boy film. After The Folk Devils split Ian went on to release records under the name of The Ian Lowery Group and King Blank, before his sad death in the 1990’s. Saw ‘em live once in Stevenage, when they played their hearts out to a half empty hall. Great stuff, get Goodnight Irony here! and if you wanna check out King Blank take a trip here where you can get their The Real Dirt album, just tell ’em I sent you. NO!!!! BOLLOCKS, Just checked the blog where King Blank is posted and FUCK me if they aint just posted Goodnight Irony. SOD IT, shall I not post it now? I dunno....nah FUCK it, I 've just spent time converting, typing and uploading for this post, so here ya go, anyway you can't have too much of a good thing.
