'A dazzling jewel..unexpected, and extraordinary Tribune

The Amazing Devil, the vanguard at the forefront of a folk revolution, await your company.

Following the release of their debut single King, and their astonishing, acclaimed debut album
Love Run , this new Soho-based eight-piece band are rapidly gaining a cult following with their raucously broken,
heart-on-ripped-and-ragged sleeve live gigs.

They are:
Scarlet Scarlet - vocals
The Blue Furious Boy - acoustic, vocals, piano
Catherine-Wheel - electric guitar
Hell Wish - cello, vocals
The Widdershin - flute, vocals
Omar Ghosh  - drums  
Old Man Lug - bass
The Fossegrim - violin



​                       'Love Run is an extraordinary debut disc by any standards, a masterpiece of swirling, brooding, often epic drama that manages to connect powerfully with our psyche. Tremendously exciting, it grabs you and refuses to let go.'
 - David Kidman,  Fatea

                        '...I’m really impressed. Love Run is original, varied, engaging, exciting and very listenable. It’s the best thing I’ve heard this year and a fantastic debut.'

                        '...And so, it ends where it began, the eight minute segue of the drums crashing mutant-shanty Not Yet into a reprise of Love Run suggesting the embattled protagonists of Fairytale of New York re-conceived by Jacques Brel for a Brecht cabaret scripted by Charles Bukowski...​One of the year’s most exhilarating, exciting and visceral debuts, they deserve to be huge.'

                        'This incredibly intense song wrings every last drop of emotion out of dramatic vocal performances, a cinematic lyrical set, and a churning full-band acoustic performance. Cello has rarely sounded so incredibly vibrant and necessary in folk-rock. The video that accompanies the tune is equally impassioned; it’s a rare thing that the video enhances the experience of listening to the song, but this one totally does. Highly recommended.'
       - Steve Carradini,  Independent Clauses
