    Looking for Devotion's 7" single from 1979 [Sapphire Records #SRTS/FMR 016]

    Marino Roberts - Vocals, Guitar
    Andy Shillito - Bass
    Mike Simpson - Drums

    A three-piece rock group from Hull, formed early in 1978 by Andy Shillito (bass), Mike Simpson (drums) and Marino Roberts (guitar/vocal) and originally called The Seedy Gees, with a set of cover versions. Later in the year the band began writing their own material and changed their moniker to Devotion, soon achieving a remarkable popularity in the Hull area. Although Roberts also handled lead vocals, it was his guitar playing which was far-and-away the centrepiece of the often-instrumental combo, a mixture of Neil Young’s soaring melody and post-Hendrix blues. In March 1979 Devotion entered Fairview Studio and recorded three self-penned tracks: two instrumentals – the Hard-Prog Rocker DEVOTION and a superior Hard Rock number entitled ACID – plus ENERGY FOR THE UNIVERSE, a strong Guitar Rock cut sung by Marino Roberts. A 7” EP was issued one month later through the SRT plant in an edition of 1,000 copies, all sold locally. The platter, which turns up very rarely, would remain Devotion’s only release. Having being included in Greg Shaw’s book ‘New Wave On Record 1975-78′ the 7’’ is sought-after in New Wave circles although it is definitely much more interesting to NWOBHM buffs. Andy Shillito quit the group before the end of 1979 forming Mayfair, who failed to make it onto vinyl: he would later go on to studio/live sound work. Marino Roberts and Mike Simpson recruited new bassist Rob Creber and continued as Marino The Band, releasing a tape-only EP in 1983 and an album (WANNA KEEP YOU SATISFIED) in 1985. Simpson later became a respected drum teacher, while Roberts would issue several solo albums as Marino as well as assisting – live and in the studio – his sister Lisa Dominique.
