In Europe, until the 18th Century, there was a musical interval that was seldomly played: The diminuished fifth. They called it, the devil's note. Noble ladies would faint upon hearing it.
The North-American slaves knew about this! That's why the first time a screaming crowd ocurred on the history of popular music, it was a blues musician playing. A man. A scale. A guitar. That was the beginning of black music!
Through the voice of sweet "Rosie", the guitar of "Richards" the bass of "Lou", the piano of "Lewis" and the drums of "Ferro", here it is "The Ramblers EP"!
Starting with Gospel and Blues, this EP, produced by "Lewis", explores the north-american black music. Travelling through R&B, Soul, Funk and Rock & Roll. Especially Rock & Roll.
After all, it doens't matter how many decades go by, a diminuished fifth will always be the devil's note! That's why this music is forever!
This is "The Ramblers EP".
