You have to be a bit sorry for Wily Bo Walker here, as the devil took his woman, and for that, he lost his mind. I guess you would!

Dead Exit (Walking with Mr. D) is a song about old Nic, and like Wily Bo’s material, it contains those distinctive mean blues vocals and a narrative tale. As they say, there are 8 million tales in Voodooville, and this is just one of them!

The instrumental introduction is interesting, almost Chris Rea in tone, then it switches to these deep and nasty vocals with the softer guitar sound placed under the mix. E D Brayshaw’s guitar work here effortlessly moves through the track, uplifting in this case, giving the track a touch of old-style class.

The song was originally written for and included in the US audio drama Dead Exit, by Doug Shiloh, and its basically a lyric of drunkenness and murder!

It will find its place soon on an album called “Some People Kill for Passion” by Wily Bo Walker and E D Brayshaw, which is to be released in 2024. I’m unsure about the date at the moment.

“The devil took my baby and the devil took my knife

The devil took my woman and twisted deep down inside…”

Ah the pain of loss!

So if, for any reason, the current season’s festivities and songs of Christmas cheer are getting you down and you want to head off to the bar and swap beers with the devil, then this one is for you. It’s a classy number to darken your December!
