Video of the Week: John Fairhurst's "Breakdown"

Our inaugural That Devil Music "video of the week" is from British bluesman John Fairhurst. His song "Breakdown" is the first single from the guitarist's upcoming album Saltwater.

The YouTube description for the video says that it was "filmed amongst some of Bristol's darkest alleys, rooftops, stairwells, toilets and the Kingsdown Wine Vaults" and it is, indeed, visually striking, outlining a sordid tale that doesn't end well for our protagonist.

Musically, the song offers up plenty o' greasy, gutbucket blues with Fairhurst's gritty, grunge slide-guitar displaying more than a little Delta mud among its raging Middle Eastern rhythms. Check it out for yourself...
