JACQUI VIXEN and JOHNNY NAVARRO

Formed in 2002 the band moved into the ever more fashionable east-end of London in a bid to get away from London's jaded Camden scene and began writing.

January 2003 they released debut album Rust Garden on their own November Tenth records label, so named because November Tenth 2002 was the day they wrote their anthem Black Leather Jesus one of the most consistently popular songs in the UK goth and alternative clubs. The band then set about becoming the most hard working band on the scene. Clocking up over 100 gigs so far they have shared the stage with amongst others: The Meteors, Jayne County and the Electric Chairs, Andi Sex Gang, Cinema Strange, Bella Morte, New Days Delays, Last Days Of Jesus, Frankenstein, The Horrorpops, The 5678's, Theatre Des Vampires, Inkubus Sukubus, Queen Adreena, Bloody Dead and Sexy, and many many more.

2004 saw the release of the critically acclaimed "Disgraceland" which featured the classic DP song She's Not America which featured on the German Pagan Love Songs compilation and the bands played at the release party for it in Bochum with Frankenstein in August 2004. Relentless live work began to pay off and in a very short space of time the band became a big live draw. The house band at fashionable London Deathrock club Dead and Buried they found themselves by the beginning of 2005 headlining over 80's legends Ausgang and able to enthral 1200 people at the April Whitby Gothic Weekend. The release of Sonic Reducer gave Devilish Presley their 3rd track which DJ's in the UK , Europe and the USA all wanted to play. Having secured sponsorship from UK clothing company Toxico the band now gained an endorsement deal with USA companyCoffin Case who supply gear to all the top US bands.


With shows lined up with Deadbolt (now sadly cancelled due to the ill health of Deadbolt singer Harley) and with gigs in Holland, Germany, Belgium as well as yet another UK tour Devilish Presley are undisputedly the best band in England right now!

Soon to release 3rd album Memphisto, the tracks Black Glitter and Jukebox Hades will be available for cover CDs and DJs.

"All the best tunes..."

Appearing in a cloud of crypt dust, gravestone chippings and funeral wreaths in 2002 'Rust Garden', Devilish Presley's debut, proved that gothabilly was far from dead and buried. Setting up their own Pity For monsters promotional company and booking their own shows, the band's DIY spirit has carried them through sophomore album 'Disgraceland' and bang up to date with the recent released 'Memphisto', an album of bonafida coffin shaking ferocity. Currently touring around the UK check out the Prez right now!" (From Nov. 2005 Big Cheese magazine.)
