Devil Doll “Ballad Of The Rearview Mirror” – Listen

Devil Doll released her new album ‘Lover & a Fighter’ on May 1st – it’s a combination of Outlaw Country and a Punk attitude.  On the ‘Ballad of the Rearview Mirror’ she’s joined by Charlie Overbey for a blistering guitar swagger of a song.

It’s full of classic references – there’s the almost ‘Ghost Riders‘ theme to the intro’,  to the allusion to any number of songs – with ‘Ring of Fire‘ standing out most prominently.    No surprise that since Colleen Duffy has made it clear that she created Devil Doll with a simple mission: Putting sex back into rock and roll modelled after her heroes Joan Jett, Johnny Cash and Mae West.  Mission Accomplished.

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
