DEVIOUS ONES- S/T Cassette- Hailing from the Motor City, these four Detroit lads are ready to shake you down and leave you with a busted lip! Armed with nothing more than seven undeniably catchy tunes of killer '77 style power pop garage rock 'n' roll, these nefarious thugs of R'N'R deliver a gut punch of JOHNNY THUNDERS, RED DONS, BUZZCOCKS and THE BOYS inspired punk pummelings that are sure to please your earholes and give you a gap toothed grin as you fumble around in the dark looking for your missing tooth and the JOHNNY MOPED records they just stole from you. Recorded at Ghetto Recorders with Jim Diamond (Dirtbombs, New Bomb Turks, Bantam Rooster)! Yeah, the guy that played bass in the DIRTBOMBS and recorded some WHITE STRIPES records!

FASTER LOUDER BLOG- New from Devious Ones is a seven-song tape out on the venerable indie label Peterwalkee Records. Don't have a cassette player? This release is also available as a digital download from Peterwalkee's Bandcamp. The secret weapon for any great punk band is an outstanding drummer, and Dougie Tangent definitely propels these seven blistering cuts of power pop inflected old school punk. If you like your punk rock with a lot of melody and just as much punch, songs like "Little Intruder" and "Bust You In The Lip" should be right up your alley. Amado Guadarrama is quickly becoming one of my favorite guitar players, and his lead work on this release is absolutely stellar. Having eagerly awaited new material from Devious Ones for several months, I am thrilled to dig into a whole slew of killer new tunes from these guys! And I love the band's cover of The Rings' 1977 punk smasher "I Wanna Be Free"! Well-established as one of The Motor City's must-see live acts, Devious Ones now seem poised for world-wide domination. Bring on a full album!
MAXIMUM ROCK'N'ROLL-Garage punk'n'roll group that comes from chunky ruff punk but with the olive branch of power pop. Garage chants, relatable hooks, bouncy vibes,-for fans of BAD SPORTSand others with the same fun-time energy. Lyrically they're trying to push a more dangerous aspect. Songs like BIP(bust you in the lip) are basically about how they're going to kick your ass. Tough guy garage rock for your nostolgic side. (MD) MRR
REVIEW-Seven tracks of garage / rock / power pop from Detroit’s Devious Ones. This doesn’t sound too dissimilar to bands like TRANZMITORS and WHITE WIRES and is another fine example of some great modern power pop which is around at the moment. As you’d expect, there are plenty of good toe-tapping tunes, with some catchy choruses and neat guitar work are on offer here. ‘Please Just Stay’ and ‘Some Of Us Are Still Here’ are stand out tracks, as is the cover of 77 classic ‘I Wanna Be Free’ by THE RINGS. I know that these guys have got a couple of 7″s out and I’m definitely going to seek out more of their stuff. I’ve got a feeling they’ll be worth my time. I’m sure they’ll be worth yours too.Oh, and kudos to Peter Walkee Records for the effort on the packaging. I’m not a huge fan of the cassette format but this tape comes in a nice thick-card sleeve with screen-printed artwork. All-in-all, it looks pretty smart. (CollectiveZineUK.co)
