Louisa and The Devil CD
Americana, Skiffle, Rockabilly and Blues from a 4-piece band co-fronted by Mike Hammond and Mark Kermode. Louisa and The Devil is the Dodge Brothers long-awaited debut album. A decade of live performances has honed the quartet into a uniquely tight yet relaxed outfiit.
The Dodge Brothers are Mark Kermode (bass, harmonica, vocals), Aly Hirji (rhythm guitar, mandolin, vocals), Alex Hammond (washboard, snare drum, percussion) and Mike Hammond (lead guitar, vocals). The music is a hybrid of country blues and rockabilly with songs of love, death and railroads performed with guitars, thumping double bass and washboard, with heartfelt harmonies and vocal virtuosity.
