“The Devil Is An Englishman” is a 1986 single by Sreamin’ Lord Byron featuring Thomas Dolby and Timothy Spall taken from the soundtrack for the film Gothic.

In Ken Russell’s film Gothic, poet Lord Byron was played by Gabriel Byrne. Thomas Dolby’s soundtrack for the film closes with the song “The Devil Is An Englishman”, which prominently features samples of Byrne’s dialogue from the film, much of it shouted — hence, the half-serious “featuring Screamin’ Lord Byron” credit on the single and the soundtrack album.

Artist – Screamin’ Lord Byron Featuring Thomas Dolby and Timothy Spall
Remix – Martin Rushent
Vocals – Timothy Spall

RELEASE INFORMATION:
Label: Virgin ‎– VS 937-12
