The Devils

The Devils is the name of an unusual electronic pop project created by Nick Rhodes of DD and Stephen "Tin Tin" Duffy.

The first grouping of Duran Duran in 1978 included Nick Rhodes as keyboardist and Duffy as songwriter and lead singer (along with John Taylor and Simon Colley). The band performed live for almost a year before Duffy left the band, moving on as a solo artist and The Lilac Time.

In 1999, Stephen came across an old tape recording of a live Duran Duran concert from a 1979 show. Shortly afterwards, Rhodes and Duffy met by chance at a fashion show, and began talking about the old music. They decided it would be fun to re-record some of those original, dark, art-school, pre-Le Bon Duran Duran songs.

A few months later they were in the studio, using vintage analogue instruments alongside modern production techniques to recreate the early Duran Duran sound. The lyrics remained unchanged.
