Biography

(2000 – 2001)

There are three bands with this name:

1. Features former Duran Duran members Nick Rhodes and Stephen Duffy. Cont. below

2. UK hardcore noise band comprised of ex-members of Stalingrad, Hard to Swallow, Doom and Extreme Noise Terror who split in January 2005.

3. A six piece Korean psychedelic soul group who released four albums between 1971 and 1977. Not much has been written in English about them, but they were an original and prolific act during the Korean psychedelic movement of the 1970s.

1. The Devils is the name of an odd electronic pop project formed by Nick Rhodes and Stephen Duffy.

The first incarnation of the band Duran Duran in 1978 included Rhodes as keyboardist and Duffy as songwriter/vocalist (along with John Taylor and Simon Colley). The band performed live for almost a year before Duffy left the band, moving on to a solo career and The Lilac Time. Duran Duran went on to super stardom, fame, and fortune with singer Simon Le Bon in the 1980s.

In the year 2000, Duffy came across an old tape recording of a live Duran Duran concert from those late 1970s shows. Shortly afterwards, Rhodes and Duffy met by chance at a fashion show, and began talking about the old music. They decided it might be fun to re-record some of those original, dark, art-school, pre-Le Bon Duran Duran songs.

A few months later they took to the studio, using vintage analog instruments but modern production techniques to recreate the early Duran Duran sound. The lyrics remained unchanged.

    I have Dark Circles and it appeals to me because of its electronic nature. Duran Duran i can do without.

    How did the bio not have a section on the In At The Deep End band yet mention this obscure Korean one? Any way sorted now. Like the idea of Duran Duran fans having some deliciously brutal hardcore come up on the the artists similar radio.

    just an updated comment (compared to 060810); the new scrobbing system is well in place on LFM now, no need to be so joking with that now, i guess. ) anyway, yes, one constant thing ; very interesting post-Enoesque side project from S.Duffy and N.Rhodes (Duran Duran), always nice to listen to it again. More people should try it too, can't be disappointed when liking eno or darker synth pop. cheers
