Take a ride with That Handsome Devil to the other side of town: a neighborhood where Charles Bukowski hung his hat at a juke joint; where the bartender knew HunterThompson's single malt of choice and kept plenty in stock.This is the place whereThat Handsome Devil's front man/songwriter Godforbid calls home, where Jeremy Page (producer/songwriter) bangs on a bullet-riddled piano, its beaten keys howling from a smoky corner.Their cracked-out, whiskey-cabaret punk jazz, echoing Outkast, Gogol Bordello and early Tom Waits, is the soundtrack to this bizarre scene.

Formed in late 2004, the inspiration for this Brooklyn-based group was the lack of meaningful music that makes it into the realm
of pop.THD's solution is what Godfobid calls "Fringe Pop." And for the past half-decade,That Handsome Devil has received scores of positive reviews, being praised as "profoundly entertaining", "bizarre in a beautiful way" and "a madcap musical frenzy as dizzying as it is dazzling".THD has increased their national visibility with placement of the track "Mexico" in the Showtime network hit,Weeds, as well as the playable bonus tracks "Elephant Bones" in Guitar Hero II and "Rob the Prez-O-Dent" in Rock Band 2. In 2011, followed by a cult of fans and critics alike,That Handsome Devil came parading back to town with a dramatic celebration of the macabre: 'The Heart Goes to Heaven,The Head Goes to Hell.' Barreling from guitar funk swagger to unhinged howling; bemoaning croons of love and loss, black magic and whiskey,THD drag you down the rabbit hole with exhilarating highs and heart-wrenching lows. Only in the end do you finally catch your breath, just in time to play it all over again.

After releasing in 2012 a dark, enthralling re-imaging of the Disney classic "The Jungle Book," Fall 2014 at long last sees the release of THD's third full-length album, coming soon!

The music is a blend of Krautrock, Soul, Funk, Afro-Cuban Santeria, Dance Music and (the ever so prevalent) Melodramatic Popular song. The band is also a cult with new members joining everyday.
