THE DEVIL’S SPINE BAND


ALBUM RELEASE & LAUNCH

Whelan’s Main Venue • Tue 30th January 2024




Trevor Knight never sits still! In a storied creative career that’s seen him in a myriad of rolls such as: touring musician with legendary 80’s avant-pop outfit Auto Da Fé, composer, collaborator and theatre director and sound designer, Trevor is well known on the Irish scene as a constant innovator. Having received many accolades for his own works, he is also renowned for having rubbed musical shoulders with the productions of many household names: Paul Brady, Philip Lynott, Honor Heffernan, Mary Coughlan, Roger Doyle and Donovan.

Jan 30th 2024 at Whelan’s sees Knight and co. launch a highly anticipated double album “Golden Arrows of the Moon” with his fascinating ongoing project, ‘The Devil’s Spine Band.” Leaning heavily into the genre of ‘Dark Cabaret,’ (previously explored with “The Whistling Girl”- settings of Dorothy Parker’s poetry with Honor Heffernan), The Devil’s Spine Band takes its’ lead from Oscar Wilde’s 1882 trip to Leadville Colorado, then explores all things ‘Cowboy’ and ‘Wilde-West’ in an Americana explosion heavily tinged with Knight’s unique innovative flair. The music features settings of a number of Wilde’s poems together with original lyrics- It’s edgy stuff; improvisational, rockin’, by times ambient electronic and by times a whoopin’ and a hollerin’ kind of an affair, that will take the audience on a unique journey with some of Ireland’s finest musicians and performers. Much of the music was co-written with Ireland’s finest living blues guitarist Ed Deane (Skid Row. Frankie Miller Band, Dana Gillespie) who has featured in all incarnations of the Devil’s Spine Band.
Let me introduce the band:

Honor Heffernan (Vocals), Ed Deane (Guitar), Garvan Gallagher (Bass), Conor Murray (Drums) and Trevor Knight (Keyboards).
