SLOW BURNING FUSE
Slow Burning Fuse Records was a DIY label. It released only one record, an EP featuring 'Free The People', 'Isn't It' and 'Something To Look Forward To', by the Devil's Hole Gang (SSSS-1; 5/79). Distributed By Slow Burning Fuse Records. Devils Hole Gang were formed around 1975 from a bunch of Ilford, Essex musicians. The first incarnation featured Chris Elliott (guitar/vocs), Steve Riley (bass/vocs), Richard Ashman (guitar/vocs), John Kennett (vocs) and Nik Sands (percussion). Richard Ashman left leaving the core of Chris, Steve, John and Nik. Eventually John was kicked out and they continued as a three piece. Nik left the band's drumming seat and concentrated on the 'backroom scene'…..roadie, sound engineer, general dogsbody….and Kev Stevenson took over. It was Kev who played drums on the single here….unfortunately. A fourth band member Kev Beaumont joined on lead guitar/b vocs but it wasn't to last. After a few gigs with the last line-up we decided to call it a day around 1980. Thanks to Robert Lyons For The Info.
