Backstage at The 100 Club with David Devant & His Spirit Wife
David Devant & His Spirit Wife were formed in Brighton in 1992. I think they are one of the best live bands there has ever been. Last Friday they performed a great sell out show at the legendary 100 Club in Oxford Street.

The band played a plethora of old faves from their debut album Work, Love life, Miscellaneous (Kindness Recordings/Rhythm King Records 1997) as well as several brand new songs.

Ex Siouxsie & The Banshees guitarist Jon Klein joined the group on stage for one number. Mr Klein is featured on Devant's 2nd album Shiney On The Inside which was released in 2000. Art Brut's lead singer Eddie Argos has hailed "Shiney on the Inside as "one of the greatest records ever made."
If all goes to plan the band's new album "Cut-Out & Keep Me" will be released in June and feature some of the new songs they played at the show such as; "Sally", "Here I Am", "Sublime", "Demons", "Ruff Magic" and "Unexploded Bomb"
