Miami, Florida

The band began as a folky-teenage angst blend of Dylan and the Yardbirds, that lasted about a week. From there to English R&B to whatever the band became. Drummer Jeff Allen made frequent trips to England, where he picked up the latest releases. Subsequently EVIL used to cover tunes by The Pretty Things, Fairies, Move, Downliner's Sect etc, before most of their counterparts had heard of them. The guy who knows all this is the drummer Jeffrey Allen, the single reason for the band'sfame.
