Devilock


Devilock was the brain-child of Keith Noss (guitars, vocals), from Cleveland, Ohio. During college, Noss was roommates with musician Kevin Knapper (drums, vocals), and they would play music together and shared a love for the music of the Misfits. Knapper also plays the piano and records in his home studio. Noss came up with the idea for a Misfits tribute band that would play around the bars of Columbus, Ohio, where he and Noss were based at the time, in the early 90s. Read more on Last.fm

In 1993, James Graves (Lead vocals) auditioned for lead vocals in the group, after responding to a flyer he found on the Ohio State University campus. Graves, also a fan of early punk and goth punk music, decided to give it a go and try to give Danzig's vocals a little bit of a twist and create a new sound. After trying out a few bass players, guitarist, singer, and drummer, Jay Rivers, aka docrivs, (Bass, vocals), bought a bass and offered to fill out the bottom end and sing some backing vocals. In 1996, Devilock recorded 3 songs that were included in two Misfit tribute compilations, 'From Hell They Came 1' and 'From Hell They Came 2'.

The songs were hastily recorded, but they offered a somewhat professional version of what they sounded like live. Although their live shows were punctuated with humorous in-between-song banter and diversions into the music of many other bands the musicians liked, including 'Sunshine of Your Love', by Cream, 'Sober', by Tool, and 'Three Days', by Jane's Addiction. The music tastes of these four combined were very eclectic and interesting. Devilock added a new bass player when Rivers had to leave the group for personal reasons, and they did more shows.

At this time I am not sure of any more of the specific details. Maybe I'll add more when I get around to 'interviewing' (lol) Kevin Knapper, James Graves, and Keith Noss. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
