Trucker Diablo – The Devil Rhythm [Ripple Music]
‘Drink Beer, Destroy’ the opening track on Trucker Diablo’s full-length debut, is something of a mantra for the Northern Irish four-piece.
Posturing in front of a truck (what else?) and decked out in checked shirts and well-worn denim; Trucker Diablo has a lot to be angry about. After enjoying limited success in the ‘90s: Simon Haddock, Tom Harte and Terry Crawford experienced the ruthless nature of rock ‘n’ roll; tossed on the scrapheap, before they had to time to shine. Picked up by Ripple Music, and worshipped by a loyal, native following; The Devil Rhythm is testimony to the band’s willingness to succeed.
