David Devant and his Spirit Wife – England’s most haunted band


If you have a spare evening tomorrow Friday the 19th, head along to The Lexington in Islington and treat yourself to a rare evening with one of the finest and relatively undiscovered bands that England has produced. Belinda and I first saw David Devant and his Spirit Wife back in 1992 when they played a Halloween concert at our local cinema, the Duke of York’s in Brighton we’ve been Devant devotees ever since.  Witty, intelligent lyrics mixed with catchy tunes, visually rich and tongue in cheek on stage,  a perfect fusion of art school and pop, how they never became huge is beyond me, but in a selfish way I’m pleased.  The image is of a comic they handed out at gigs. Check them out.
