Originally formed in the spring of 2000, pop-punksters Handsome Devil consists of members Danny Walker (vocals, guitar), Billie Stevens (guitar), Keith Morgan (drums), and Darren Roberts (bass). Hailing from Orange County, CA (the same place that spawned Lit, No Doubt, and Social Distortion), Handsome Devil is quite musically comparable to their regional forefathers, as they list such diverse artists as the Clash, Ozzy, the Beatles, the Descendents, and Elvis Costello as important influences who helped shape their sound. The group signed to Lit's Dirty Martini label shortly after forming, and they hit the road opening for such bands as Zebrahead and Sprung Monkey. Handsome Devil's debut release, Love & Kisses From the Underground, was issued in September of 2001.
