A YOUNG up and coming Weston band delighted fans last weekend when they got on the roof of the town's youth cafe to belt out some tunes.Members of Devious Phat performed on the roof of Barcode in South Parade on Friday (June 16) to entertain crowds below and give them a taster of their new EP, Get Devious.The former Wyvern school pupils Nathan, Migs, Bettsy, Jason and Ricky, got such a response that they kept playing until the plug was pulled at the youth cafe and a council enforcement officer turned up.Town councillor Andrew Horler said: "It is fair to say the young lads got carried away to a responsive crowd. North Somerset Council enforcement officers did arrive. However, being aware of some complaints town council staff had already pulled the plug and turned off the electricity." The excitement carried on through Saturday when the lads officially launched their EP and played in front of Weston's mayor Councillor Paula Howell at Barcode.
