Info: The Cute Lepers have been on an archeological dig for the past four years. They've been busy unearthing long lost punk and power pop gems, running them through their own proprietary filter and spitting them back out at high speed. Since the band's formation shortly after the the flame out of Seattle legends The Briefs (of which founding members Steve E. Nix and Steve Kicks were apart) they've released three LP's, too many singles to count on labels across two continents and toured wherever there is road to set a van down or land a plane on. For better or worse they're unstoppable! Adventure Time is the third Cute Lepers full length, and they continue to navigate the same territory pioneered by bands like The Buzzcocks, The Beat, The Jam, and The Boys pioneered a generation before but with the quirks and crooked teeth you'd expect from two guys who used to be in The Briefs. In fact, in a huge nod from that generation, Duncan Reid of The Boys wrote the song "77" and gave it to the Lepers for this album. In addition to the usual Cute Lepers formula there are also a number of new subtle tweeks including the best saxophone use in a punk song since The Saints "Know Your Product" on opening track "Tribute To Charlie". The song itself is an ode to UK Subs frontman Charlie Harper by name and a number of other die-hards in spirit. Like the last two LP's this record is an undeniable ear worm. I defy you to not wake up tomorrow after hearing the LP without "Tribute To Charlie", "All Of This Attention Is Killing Me" or "Head Over Heels" in your head first thing.
*** The Cute Lepers are 100% proof that '77 punk rock/powerpop in the vein of Generation X, Buzzcocks, and The Boys is timeless in both sound and spirit.
Since their arrival on the scene in 2007, they've toured the US and Europe extensively, released two critically acclaimed LP's (“Can't Stand Modern Music” & “Smart Accessories”), as well as numerous limited 7” singles, most of which have been on trademark coloured vinyl!
With their Motown - esque girl pop harmonies and dance moves, flipped fingers to what's supposedly hip and happening, and love of the Rolling Stones, they have distilled their influences to create something exceptionally fresh, rude and absolutely worthy of damaging your ears. The new album Adventure Time is due for an April 5th release, and is a continuation of where they left off: striving for a killer pop song while keeping both feet ankle deep in the dirt of first wave punk.
Three LP's in, the Cute Lepers continue to enjoy playing shows around the world, meeting new cool people and hanging out with old friends. As well as bonafide heroes of ours that we get to talk about guitars and various stupid to absurd topics with... and then watch them tear it up on stage. Actually, I think we're in it for the gigs with the Adicts and The Boys and the Swinging Utters and the UK Subs and the Buzzcocks when you get down to it. Really really love punk rock, want to contribute, and want to be where the action is! --Steve E. Nix
