RAY SPEEDWAY AND THE DEVILS OF PACE
JOHN is drummer. MARC
is bass player. LUKE is singer and guitarist.
All of them live in
different English cities and they all have different day jobs. The band
started near 6 years ago a while after John's first band split up (it
was youngsters guitarband THE REPLICAS, 1989-1991).
RSDOP like especially
to play at unusual venues, for example one time playing in a chip shop
(UK fast food cafe) in Norfolk. They practice rarely because of the
long distance between them, so first demo cassette was out just in summer
1997. The name for it is "Norfolk Speed" and this it's a fine collection
of 4-track recordings made during the bands first years of existence.
Also RSDOP appear on a compilation record and split 7" with Norwich
UK band MAGOO on Noise Box label.
In 1997 summer RSDOP
joined BOWLING BOY (Newcastle, UK) for their
Eastern Europe tour - Latvia/Lithuania/Belarus. 1998 September is the
date for another split 7" this time with Latvian band SIRKE,
on TEN PIN PRODUCTIONS, but October - Western-Europe
Tour (with SIRKE, BOWLING BOY and SARKANAIS
Valmiera, Latvia, August 1998
