April 2009 sees Esoteric Recordings release the classic trilogy of albums by Ladbroke Grove counter culture proto-Punks the DEVIANTS. Founded by legendary counter-culture figure MICK FARREN and RUSSELL HUNTER and inspired by The Fugs, the Deviants were first of the anarchic groups to emerge from the Ladbroke Grove area of London. Two years before HAWKWIND burst on to the underground scene, the DEVIANTS were preaching revolution and creating their own form of musical anarchy. Deviants 3 was the bands final album, originally released in 1969 on the TRANSATLANTIC imprint and featured the legendary Billy the Monster. Soon after its release the DEVIANTS broke apart with Russell Hunter, Paul Rudolph and Duncan Sanderson forming the legendary PINK FAIRIES, whilst MICK FARREN would record a legendary solo album and continue pursuing his own revolutionary dream.
