Under Cover and Still Alive 2CD
Under Cover and Still Alive is something special from longstanding French psychobillies The Lucky Devils.
This double-disc set presents a brand new studio album on disc one; brand new as in that these are recent recordings released for the first time, although the songs themselves are old classics.
This is the Under Cover part of the album, as the Devils tackle classic songs from the 1960s, '70s and '80s, injecting them with psychobilly adrenaline.
The songbooks of The Four Tops, The Kings, REM, Kiss, The Zombies, Depeche Mode, Rolling Stones, Midnight Oil, Matt Bianco and The Clash are all plundered, and the resulting psychobilly styled reworkings are something of a success.
Second disc Still Alive is an excellent quality recording of the gig that marked The Lucky Devils 15th anniversary.
This strong set is constructed on-stage performances of highlights from the bands first one-and-a-half decades, and in contrast is disc one, is heavily weighted with Lucky Devils originals.
