Beat the Devil call it quits

One of my favorite discoveries of the past few years, New York's Beat the Devil, has decided to part ways. No reason is given on their Myspace blog, but the various members are remaining active. Their amazing vocalist and harmonium player Shilpa Ray will now front Shilpa Ray and Her Happy Hookers, who have a Myspace page but no music yet available. Mishka Shubaly and Mitchell King, who rounded out the trio, now play together in RIBS.

Beat the Devil - Shine in Exile

Beat the Devil earned a solid bunch of fans in Atlanta through their great live shows and single EP, and it's sad to see them go. Here's hoping the members' other projects are just as impressive.

Saw this last week, this sucks!

Apparently Mishka and Shilpa were an item and that finished...along with the band.

Ah, I guess that would explain it.

I'm curious whether they album they were supposed to record last summer ever went anywhere. Be a shame if there are uncirculated recordings.

Crikey, that's a shame. I really liked their EP.
