Two years ago, the guys in the local rock band Fascinating blew out a tire when they were on their way to a gig in Houston. While the group was stuck in Crowley, a desolate part of Louisiana, bassist Carter Luckfield began thinking about songs for a solo album. Quality Time Records would issue the album, appropriately dubbed Crowley 666
, that year.
When it came time to bring these songs to the stage, Luckfield recruited bandmates and road mates Adam Spektor and Marty Brass to form Red Devil Ryders
. The guys have recently cut a full-length record with local engineer Paul Maccarrone, and the self-titled debut features a collection of punk/honky tonk songs about “life on the road.”
The band celebrates the cassette release of the album with a show on Saturday, Feb. 16, at Maple Lanes
. The Missed and Bogus Genius will open.
