The Little Devils – About Time (EP)

(Self-release: LD003)

The Little Devils are described as “21st Century Blues – new shoots from old roots!”

This seven track EP, ‘About Time’ by ‘The Little Devils’ is due for release in February 2014.

From London , the band is fronted by talented singer Yoka, who also plays sax and flute, bass player Graeme Wheatley, Big Ray on guitar and Sara Leigh Shaw on drums and backing vocals. All the tracks on the EP are self penned.

The first track ‘The Waiter’, is rocky and raw with sax and great vocals having shades of Bo Diddley rhythms. Following is ‘Good Times’, with gutsy guitar and vocals, some great ‘full on’ sax with a touch of flute.

Slowing the tempo ‘Hang My Head’ is a slow, sentimental tune which leans towards country rhythms. Lovely sax with vocals reminiscent of Kirsty MacColl. ‘No Love Lost’ introduces flute and sax and has a bit of a funky feel.

The next track ‘Walking Disaster’, has a great big band sound, with a take on the 50’s and again some superb sax. Slowing it down with some class harmonies ‘Another Pack Of Lies’ with great use of Hammond and sax together.

The final track is ‘The Waiter’ again, but this time with some wonderful harmonica input rather than sax, getting down and ‘dirty’!!

A great raw sound on this album and I will look forward to catching a live performance.
