Welcome! The first album release by the newly-formed Party of Devils, entitled "Homage", features incredible new versions of songs from the period 1967-1977 from The Rolling Stones, Neil Young, and others. These are songs that mean a lot to band members Leon and Margaret Goudikian.
You will hear a brand new interpretation of the The Rolling Stones' iconic "Sympathy for the Devil" (1968). There is a powerful take on David Bowie's incredible track "Heroes" (1977). Neil Young's "After the Gold Rush" (1970) is perhaps his most exquisite song, and the Devils were honored to put everything they had into the deeply affecting version you will hear. Jefferson Airplane's "White Rabbit" (1967) is another iconic track, an emblem of the brief and gentle psychedelic period leading up to the summer months of 1967, after which the gentle part was over. They pay it true homage with a masterful recreation. You may be familiar with another piece of psychedelia of the period, courtesy of the Chambers Brothers, called "Time Has Come Today" (1967): a strange song best played in a dark room with black light and swirly fluorescent posters. What pure fun it is to listen to an updated version of this classic, mind-blowing track. Two Bad Company songs, the acoustic number "Sea Gull" (1974), and the soulful "Don't Let Me Down" (1974) are two lesser-known songs from their self-titled debut album, both given lush and thoroughly captivating treatments by the Devils. The album is rounded out by an intriguing original instrumental called "Ride." Check it all out!
