About Simple Damned Device: Original Rock Band
Honoring the 70's with bands like The Stranglers,Grand Funk Railroad and Bob Mould,Seasoned Stage and Studio vets deconstruct and deliver power chords and heavy grooves- a soundtrack of fierce blues/sludge/rock alongside forceful vocals and lyrics that are caustic,painfully funny with raw observations on Love,Lawlessness and Neuroticism.
The rock, inverted-blues impellent show fueled by the propulsive and intuitive synergy of this foursome,SDD is straight up Rock'n'Raunch with a sonic assault and lyrical attack perhaps paving way for a new genre, *Rock, Rhythm & Bruise*
Watching guitarist Kevin Bell at a jam night
Mr Bell is owning every song, some of them hoary old chestnuts that should long be packed away forever in musical mothballs.. He's honoring them and yet..he's also... I dunno... groping and fingering the fretboard in a way that suits my history of mangling and mashing the classics.. Does he wanna play with me? Sure, he says..having never heard me sing... A rather intimidating mutton chopped mead enthusiast named David F. South supplies and is soon named Thickness. His rumbling five string Bass complements my grumbling nicely and he muscles in his choice of drummer at a completely unnecessary 'audition' and so... Derick E. Lindo..an infernal machinist of skin and cymbal demon-tails perfectly into Simple Damned Device
Me, LFB aka Lawrence Bayne? Besides being an Actor and Voice Over Artist,I write thinly veiled death threats to abusers, liars, sycophants and ex-sweethearts.. and they're all love songs
WE are SDD.We're sweet.We're salty.We don't bite.
