Beat The Devil

[rub some Dirt on it]

Today is one of those black dog days.  That shadow can creep close up on ya if yer not minding the store.  Carry that stick boy, carry that stick…

Shilpa Ray is a god.  Now that Beat The Devil is deceased, she goes by Shilpa Ray and Her Happy Hookers.  But don’t fool yourself, She came straight outa Jim Morrison and Glenn Danzig’s womb.  Dark, Broody, Ritualistic, Powerful, Sweaty, Angry, Evil, Sexy.  She’s a nomadic storm cloud bringing the next flood.  If you ever get a chance to see her live, run and get up close enough to see her sweat while she plays her harmonium.  She labors life into that beast by pumping it through the entire show and I believe that’s the source of her power.  It’s like she’s priming her soul pump after pump after pump after pump…She burns.
