There is also a photo gallery and, of course, the main page for the Demon Groove Lizards band, where you can see and find out more about them.

Demon Groove Lizards were an awesome hard funk and heavy rock band formed in Devon in the southwest uk. They were a classic power quintet of vocals, two guitars, bass and drums. The hardcore of the band, Ian Lee and Brent Cassidy, remained constant throughout various changes of lineup that took place over the band’s lifetime.

If you happen to like groovetastic jazzy funky rock with a hard edge, you will love Demon Groove Lizards. Every member of the band was a fantastic virtuoso in their own right and their gestalt mix of talent was truly awe inspiring. Fans of bands as diverse as Red Hot Chili Peppers, Jamiroquai and INXS will find plenty to love in the sound of the Demon Groove Lizards.

One of the most fascinating and fun pieces of syncronicity surrounding the addition of the Demon Groove Lizards band to the Wud Records Archives is that George, who engineered the original recording in 1993, was the eventual mastering engineer as well. There were just the 28 years between mixing and mastering this EP!

George was able to report that he was quite pleased with his mixing all those years ago. He would like to have had the guitars quieter and panned wider, and the lead guitar EQed less harshly, but that was how the band wanted things to be at the time. These matters were improved in the mastering stage somewhat, along with combating the general cassette noise that always occurs during salvage operations.

There are two further Demon Groove Lizards EPs in need of a little work before they can be released. Once this has been done we shall make them both available to the public. Fans of Demon Groove Lizards will be informed in our News service and on Twitter, so be sure to follow those pages.

We would like to say a massive thank you to Ian Lee, bassist of Demon Groove Lizards, for all his work in enabling us to bring this to you. Thanks dude! :)
