DeLila Black's Country-Punk Vision
"In a little club in London, DeLila Black marches on stage in a dark, honky-tonk western shirt, slacks with an oversized belt-buckle, and dreadlocks. She brandishes a whip and flogs the floor as her two bandmates unleash a soulful, pop-punk, guitar-driven, garage-rockabilly musical assault."
