Who are Thee Lucifer Sams?

Thee Lucifer Sams are a psychedelic band from Liverpool, England.

It started life five years ago when Ivan Hell from Dirtblonde put together the first incarnation of the band to play at his one-off psych night called Syd Barret Was My Grandad.

However, the band split up on the evening of their second ever gig, when the original drummer, suffering from schizophrenia and at danger of committing suicide, was caught by the police at the venue, short before their live set was due. He was scorted to a mental institution and the band left to fizzle out.

On September 2018 Ivan re-igntited the band, now featuring local legend Richie (Ivan’s partner in Slow Death) on bass, and Markhus, one of the finest guitarists in Liverpool, on Drums.

By all accounts, their Manchester Psych Weekender debut was a success… so get ready for more ‘Sams!
